Summary:

Jordan Brown was one of the standouts of the 2018 High School McDonald’s All-American game, as he scored 26 points and collected 8 rebounds in the showcase.

But so far, his draft stock currently seems to be all over the place as some have questioned his skill set on offense, and the consensus seems to be that he will need to add a lot more strength to his thin frame.

It was thought that Brown’s signing was a good addition to Nevada, but he did not play much as a freshman, but he did play better for Arizona before he later decided to transfer to Louisiana-Lafayette.  Right now, Brown is an afterthought right now due to his lack of production in college, but if he plays well for his new team, he could be right back in the second round conversation in the future.
