Former McDonald’s All-American Jordan Brown will transfer to Arizona

We finally have our answer regarding former McDonald’s All-American and Nevada transfer Jordan Brown.

Today, the 6-foot-11 forward announced on Twitter that he would be transferring to Arizona

In an interview with Evan Daniels of 247 Sports, Brown said that his recent visit to Arizona put the Wildcats over the top.

“Some of the things I really liked about my time up there, was building a relationship with coach [Sean] Miller and the rest of the staff,” Brown said. “The weather out there was nice. I like the way he plays, and the freedom that he gives his bigs in the post and away from the post.”

He also added that he liked how close Arizona was to his hometown of Napa, CA and that his friends and family could now come visit and watch his games for the rest of his college career.

“It’s not too far from home, and is a good distance if my family and friends want to come up and make it to some games,” he added. “One thing I really noticed is Sean Miller’s passion for the game and just the drive that he has. I feel like it matches mine.”

Kentucky was involved early in the recruiting process and sources told KSR that Brown had significant interest in the program, but things went fairly quiet for several weeks. Brown made visits to Saint Mary’s and Arizona State, and there were also rumors that UK could also soon get a visit, but the former five-star prospect opted for Sean Miller and the Arizona Wildcats instead.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Brown will have to sit out a year before having three more years of eligibility.

    Dude made the same mistake twice? Who was the last player that developed AT ALL at Arizona?

      Considering they put out the #1 pick last year and have had other multiple first round picks, I’d say multiple guys. Just because they pay players, doesn’t make Miller a bad coach.

      Ayton was a #1 pick no matter where he went.

      Stuck…same way with Cal and any other coaches. They don’t develop these kids in the 8 months they are there. I have said that for years about the stupid people bragging how Cal “puts guys in the NBA” and get bashed. They are #1 picks no matter where they went. Ayton, Zion, AD, Wall…all were #1 picks from High School. There are many more players that dropped in draft status after their FR year than went up in status.

    Unbelievable that Sean Miller is still coaching at Arizona—business as usual, or why else would Brown transfer there ?
    Cheating has been the mode at Zona going back to the Silver Fox, Lite Olson, who like Bill Self, of the present era ,was the media darling back in the day.

      Have these young men committing to Arizona been living under a rock for the past 18 months. Sean Miller will be terminated and Arizona will be put on an NCAA tournament ban for at least 2yrs, loss of scholarships, and probation. But hey, they do play in the Conference of Champions!!! LOL

      I’d bet my life savings that almost nothing happens to Zona, KU, or LSU. Ncaa is incompetent at best and they won’t do a thing about any of this that punishes these schools in any significant way. Watch. I hate it. But watch.

      More amazing is the parents of these kids. How would you want your son going to play for a known, proven cheater. Oh wait, our own coach has had wins vacated at both Schools he was at prior to UK, but he knew nothing. Was not the same disgusting cheating as Miller and company were caught at but was still cheating. And FWIW all these coaches have paid for players, ALL from K to Cal to Ole Roy to Dean to Tark etc…Recruiting has been dirty business for years.
