Brown has legitimate pro level length and will run the floor. Right now, he didn’t showcase the same toolbox that Nick Richards showed in his prep days. Brown’s development over the next 18 to 24 months will be intriguing to chart. Physically, he has the room to add weight / strength. Skillwise, can he turn the corner and become a consistent offensive threat?

Brown is a high major prospect at the center position. Standing at 7-foot-1 he has length to affect shots in the paint and anchor a team with his rebounding and post scoring. Add in he runs well and is relatively light on his feet and Brown has all the makings of playing meaningful basketball for many years to come. It still appears that he is growing into his body and becoming comfortable making the moves he can instinctively make. He struggled with foul trouble today, but still managed to score 12 points on 5-9 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds. His offensive polish will dictate ultimately how high his ceiling will be.
