New York City native Moses Brown has been having a great junior season campaign. The class of 2018 center has added even more to his game from last year and because of that, he has a long list of colleges recruiting him.
“Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, UConn, Maryland, Seton Hall, Arizona, Florida, Miami, Cal and more,” said Brown.
Kentucky Head Coach John Calipari watched Brown take on their class of 2017 commit Nick Richards this past weekend. Brown likes what they have to offer as a program.
“I feel like that’s a school that develops a lot of pros right away,” he said. “I feel like that will be a good situation for me because I think I can be a pro.”
Another blue blood school in the Duke Blue Devils has been in contact with Brown on a consistent basis.
“Duke is like Archbishop Molloy, it’s not all about basketball, it’s about academics too,” Brown said. “I like that about Duke. They have many pros and mostly everyone that is in their program is a really good player. It also provides a high level education.”
Louisville is another program that has been recruiting Brown hard.
“They have come by to see me a couple of times,” Brown said. “Rick Pitino has been in contact with me as well so it’s been cool.”
Hometown school St. John’s has made Brown feel like a priority for quite some time.
“St. John’s has been cool to me,” he said. “Since the summer of my freshman or sophomore year they have emphasized to me to stay home and be a hometown hero.”
He looks to take his time with his recruitment as he will most likely narrow his list down sometime in late August. After that, he will not be making a decision anytime soon.
“It will probably be late senior year for my decision,” he said.
He has identified some key factors that will come into play with his decision.
“I’m looking for a place that I can go develop, become a pro then go back and get my degree,” Brown said.
