McDonald’s All-American forward Jordan Brown closing in on decision
By ADAM ZAGORIAJordan Brown, the 6-foot-10 McDonald’s All-American power forward from Prolific Prep (CA), is getting closer to a college decision.
Brown, who has a final three of Arizona, California and Nevada, could pull the trigger in the next “week or two,” his father, Dion Brown, told ZAGSBLOG on Friday night.
“Still looking at about a week or two,” Dion said by text.
Brown has taken official visits to St. John’s, Lousiana-Lafayette, Cal, and UCLA, but has yet to take his fifth visit.
“Still deciding if we will take the fifth visit,” Dion said.
In 2017-18 Brown helped Prolific Prep to a 27-8 record and the semifinals of the Grind Session High School World Championship.
According to 247Sports, Brown is the No. 17 player in the 2018 class and the No. 5 power forward.
