Jordan Brown, a transfer who was last seen trotting about college basketball for Nevada, has committed to play for the Arizona Wildcats.
The young man made his announcement on the mean streets of Twitter.

Brown is an interesting talent. Originally a member of the 2018 recruiting class, he was projected as a four-star caliber player at the time, who most most outlets pegged as a top-30 (or so player).
However, during his freshman season with Nevada in 2018-19, he only managed to play slightly over 10 minutes per game for the talented team, contributing 3.0 points and 2.1 rebounds per contest.
That being said, it’s certainly worth noting the Arizona Wildcats were originally interested when Jordan Brown was first being recruited, meaning Sean Miller likely knows what he’s getting here, and almost certainly values the 6-foot-11 forward more than his counting stats would infer.
Nevertheless, it’ll be interesting to see if Brown can get things moving. Often, especially for previously highly thought of recruits, the grass is greener elsewhere and a change of scenery is needed. Time will tell, though.
