Kentucky has become a major player for graduate transfers in recent years, but there’s now a chance of an undergraduate transfer coming to Lexington.
Former McDonald's All-American and five-star recruit Jordan Brown has his name in the transfer portal after one year with the Nevada Wolf Pack.
Nevada lost their head coach Eric Musselman to Arkansas and did not provide the former top 15 prospect with all too much playing time last season, as Brown only averaged 10.1 minutes per game.
With his name in the transfer portal and seemingly willing to sit out one season to gain three years of eligibility at a new school, Brown is considering a number of programs according to his father.
Here’s the full list Brown’s father provided to Adam Zagoria of Zags Blog.
Nevada transfer and former @McDAAG Jordan Brown is considering Arizona, Kentucky, Miami, Wake, Arizona State, Louisiana Lafayette, St Mary’s, California, Oregon, Baylor, LSU, Pitt, Ohio State, his dad tells me.— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 26, 2019
Brown is a California native,which explains why so many west coast schools such as the California Golden Bears, St Mary’s Gaels, Arizona Wildcats, Oregon Ducks and Arizona State Sun Devils are all in on the 6-11 forward. However, there’s is no indication as to who’s leading the pack to obtain his services.
Clearly, Kentucky is a factor, and if he does indeed choose the Cats, he will almost in a sense be an addition to the 2020 recruiting class that is currently empty and not exactly loaded with great big men.
A third-year Jordan Brown could be as good as any 2020 big man.
