Jaylen Brown to Visit Michigan Jan. 24, Georgia Feb. 17
Jaylen Brown will take his final official visit to Michigan Jan. 24 for the Wisconsin game and will also take an unofficial to Georgia Feb. 17 when they play South Carolina, he says in his USA Today blog.
As previously reported by SNY.tv, Brown has family connections to Michigan.
“Next I’m gonna take a visit to Michigan on the 24th,” the 6-foot-7 Marietta (GA) Wheeler wrote. “I’ve got a lot of family up there and so it’s gonna be a little reunion while I’m there. A lot of them went to Michigan and Michigan State so I’m really excited to see the campus and see my people.
“That’ll be my fifth official visit and I’ll take an unofficial visit to Georgia on the 17th for a game.”
Brown took his fourth official to North Carolina last weekend when the Tar Heels beat Louisville, 72-71.
“I had my visit to UNC last weekend and I had a great time!” he wrote.
“Marcus Paige hit a crazy finger roll off the backboard over three people at the buzzer to beat Louisville and just to be a part of that environment with those fans was special to me. You should’ve been in that locker room after the game! It was just really genuine and hype.
“Coach Roy told me he knew they were gonna win the whole time. I said, “Are you sure?” He said, “Yep, I’m sure!”
“I had a great visit! I would give it a 10 out of 10.”
Brown is also considering Kentucky, Kansas, UCLA, Georgia and Georgia Tech. He will sign in the late period.
“After the season, I’ll know when I’ll want to make my decision,” he wrote. “I set that as a goal for myself; I’m not saying I’ll know where but, I feel like I’ll know when I’ll want to have a decision by.”
Brown also announced he had made the USA Hoop Summit team for April.
