    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Moses Brown, the 7-foot-2 senior big man from Archbishop Molloy High School, left Thursday for his official visit to UCLA.

    Brown will be on campus along with 2018 point guard Darius Garland.

    Brown has previously taken official visits to Maryland (Sept. 28) and Florida State (Oct. 20). Garland, the 6-foot-1 point guard from Brentwood (TN) Academy, has previously taken visits to Vanderbilt (Sept. 22), Kentucky (Oct. 13), and Indiana (Oct. 20). He Tweeted Thursday that he has not committed anywhere after Indiana head coach Archie Miller and assistant Bruiser Flint visited him Wednesday.

    Meantime, Brown is coming off a Florida State visit that went well.

    “This is what he loved about Florida State, that coach [Leonard] Hamilton is the one who contacted us regarding Moses,” Molloy assistant John Magna told ZAGSBLOG. “Coach Hamilton is a very impressive individual, great guy. He went over everything about their style of play and Moses felt very comfortable.

    “And [from] what he saw in his style of play, Moses Brown would fit in beautifully. It’s an up-tempo, fast-paced tempo with a lot of screens and cutting and moving, which would benefit Moses Brown because it would give him space to do what he needs to do.

    “He loves Maryland, he loves [assistant coach] Bino [Ranson], he loves everything that they did as far as recruiting him. And Moses said, ‘I want to go see UCLA and see what they’re all about, and after UCLA I’m going to look to make a decision.'”
