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.
