Gerald Brown, a 6-4 junior swingman for Baltimore's Frederick Douglass High School, is getting a lot of interest this spring.
Baltimore Select coach Paul Bowden said, "Gerald has had Providence, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, NC State, George Mason and Rhode Island in to see him. With UMass, WVU and several others such as St. John's, Delaware, James Madison, Kent State, George Washington and Towson trying to set up visits."
"Gerald has been to Providence, Syracuse and Delaware on unofficial visits," Bowden added. "He also plans visits to George Mason and NC State in May."
Brown, who averaged 19.9 points, 3.0 assists and 4.0 steals per game last season as a junior for the City and State 3A Champions, was named to the Baltimore Sun's 2002 All-Metro First Team.
Brown impressed Rivals Hoops at the Maryland State Championships. He had 21 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and dished out five assists and had two steals in the Ducks 105-74 semifinal victory over Chopticon. In the finals, as Douglass completed a perfect 28-0 season, Brown had 14 points, six rebounds, two steals and one block in the 76-72 win over Gwynn Park H.S. from the Washington, DC, area.
Gerald is close to meeting the current NCAA freshman eligibility standards with his core GPA around the 2.5 mark. He has already received an SAT score above the 820 mark and will be re-taking the test to improve on that mark.
In addition to his competition with the Baltimore Select AAU squad, Brown will be attending this summer's adidas ABCD camp.
