Moses Brown, the 7-foot-1 junior big man from Archbishop Molloy High School and the New Heights AAU program, has set two official visits for next month.
Brown, ranked No. 17 in the 2018 ESPN 100, will visit Louisville Sept. 1 and Maryland Sept. 22, Molloy coach Mike McCleary said.
Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, and St. John’s are among the schools that have been courting him.
He broke down several recently 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.”
