"I am hoping to get stronger, work on my grades, and play on a national level instead of just staying in a city," Brown said. "Our school [Douglas] would have a pretty good team this year, but there wouldn't be any need for me to stay after the season we had last year."
"Since I have already committed [to Providence], there wouldn't really be a need for me to stay there, just to give the other kids there a chance to shine," Brown concluded.
Brown attended the adidas ABCD Camp in New Jersey this past July, but he had some duties to take care of in summer school the rest of the month.
