2018 Center Moses Brown Talks Recruiting, Timeline
Moses Brown, the 7-foot-1 junior big man from Archbishop Molloy and the New Heights AAU program, is considering cutting his list later this summer.
Brown is ranked No. 6 in the 2018 ESPN 60 and is being recruited by a Who’s Who of Division 1 programs.
“When the live periods are over, I will think about cutting my school list down before the high school season starts,” he told Rivals.com at the Pangos All-American Camp.
An athletic, mobile big man who is still growing, Brown should have his pick of schools. Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Louisville and St. John’s are among the schools that have been courting him.
He broke down several for Rivals.com:
Kentucky: “They just want me to become a pro and to set goals for myself to be the best Moses that I can possibly be.”
Maryland: “Same message that they have always been preaching to me, which is that they love me and that they think that I am the best big in my class; they have made me a priority.”
St. John’s: “They are the hometown team. They are making me a priority, seeing that I am from Queens, which is where St. John’s is. They got Sid Wilson and they want me to stay home.”
Duke: “I talked to Coach K once but I talk to Nolan Smith and Jeff Capel. They have been texting me a lot during the basketball season.
“They got a lot of pros, they win championships and they develop. That is definitely something that I am looking for in a program.”
Louisville: “They are making me a priority and they think that I am the No. 1 center in my class, which I do agree, but I am working hard.”
