Brown displays talent in blowout win
LAS VEGAS -- One of the class of 2017's top players, five-star
utility guard Troy Brown had all of his skills on display Tuesday
night. The 6-foot-6 junior did a little bit of everything as he led Las Vegas
(Nev.) Centennial to an easy win over Las Vegas (Nev.) Silverado while scoring
15 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out five assists.
With an assistant from California -- where he took an unofficial visit
to during the fall -- Brown snatched boards, led the break and disrupted things
on defense while sitting most of the fourth quarter and leading his team to a 30-point win.
Brown also took a visit to Arizona during the fall.
Said it before, but Troy Brown reminds me an awful lot of Evan Turner. Smooth, versatile perimeter player.- Eric Bossi (@ebosshoops) December 16, 2015
IN HIS OWN WORDS
"I'm just trying to be as aggressive as possible and play the best defense I
can. I want me teammates to know I'm giving the best effort possible."
"The Cal visit was pretty good. I got to see my men Ivan Rabb and Jaylen Brown so it was pretty good. They just tell me that it's a great school
academically and that you can have a lot of fun there and the basketball program
is great as well."
"Arizona was the same thing. I got to see Ray Smith and
Justin Simon and see how much fun they were having and stuff like that. They
relayed the same message about having a good basketball team and being able to
play under a coach that played point guard."
"I don't really have a list."
In addition to Cal and Arizona, Brown mentioned programs like Kansas
(where his sister is a junior on the women's team), UNLV,
among others. He said that his next step is to cut a list down to around 10
final competitors shortly after the new year.
Brown said that the relationships with head coaches that he feels are the most
established right now include schools out West like Cal, Arizona and UNLV.
Though he seems to be at ease with the process and in no rush, his recruitment
looks like it is shaping up to be a battle of West Coast programs.
