California is stacked with talent for the coming years. One shooting guard that stands out is Jabari Brown. Brown, who used to play at Findlay Prep, is now playing in Oakland. He runs with the Oakland Soldiers in the summer and is a teammate of Nick Johnson and Kyle Wiltjer, who the Wildcats are also evaluating.
As of now, Kentucky is not showing much interest towards Brown. “I haven’t heard from them (Kentucky) yet but hopefully they contact me,” he said. “Hopefully they call me sometime in July because I would be very interested.” Brown is clearly a big fan of Coach Calipari and what he can do with guards. Jabari would essentially play the role of Doron Lamb, who is thought to be a one and done player.
As of now, there is no interest yet, but there could be in the coming weeks. At the final day of LeBron James Skills Academy in Cleveland, Jabari put on a clinic and was shooting the lights out. The ‘Cats better get involved soon because this California kid is a steal.
