Oregon Lands Top-20 Prospect Troy Brown Jr.

Oregon landed five-star recruit Troy Brown Jr. on Monday afternoon, who chose the Ducks after also making official visits to Kansas, Ohio State, Alabama, and Georgetown. The 6-7 prospect, who can play the guards or small forward position, is known for his scoring prowess as well as versatility.

From the Las Vegas Sun:

It ended today, nearly four years and more than 20 scholarship offers later, with the 6-foot-7 wing from Centennial High verbally committing to Oregon in a video on Bleacher Report.


Brown, who Rivals.com ranks as the nation’s eighth overall recruit for the class of 2017, picked the Ducks over a final eight of Alabama, Arizona, Cal, Georgetown, Kansas, Ohio State, Oregon and UNLV.


“I want to go to new heights and take my game to the next level,” Brown said in the Bleacher Report video. “For Vegas, for my family, for me, I chose Oregon. Go Ducks.”

Brown averaged 19 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game in 2015-16 to lead Centennial to the Sunset Regional championship game. Last summer, he was part of Team USA’s gold medal-winning team at the U17 FIBA World Championships in Spain.
