Back on April 11, Nevada forward and former McDonald’s All-American Jordan Brown put his name in the transfer portal.
A week later, sources told KSR that Kentucky had reached out to the 6-foot-11 forward about using him as a practice player for a season before he’s eligible to suit up again in 2020-21.
Last week, Brown’s father told Adam Zagoria that Kentucky was one of 13 schools in consideration for the former five-star prospect.
Nevada transfer and former @McDAAG Jordan Brown is considering Arizona, Kentucky, Miami, Wake, Arizona State, Louisiana Lafayette, St Mary’s, California, Oregon, Baylor, LSU, Pitt, Ohio State, his dad tells me.

Now, Ben Parker of Rivals.com is reporting that while Brown hasn’t officially cut his list yet, he’s focusing on six schools: Arizona, Kentucky, Arizona State, California, St. Mary’s, and Louisiana Lafayette.
Since then, Jordan Brown & his family are still hearing from #Arizona, #Kentucky, #ASU, #Cal, St Mary’s, and Louisiana Lafayette. Jordan has not narrowed his list down yet. He is taking it slow with finals coming up. In regards to Cal, they haven’t met, but have talked. (2/2)

Sources tell KSR that while he is expected to visit schools in the coming weeks, Kentucky likely being one of them, it’s not a certainty that he ends up leaving Nevada. Current Wolfpack players and coaches are recruiting him back to Reno, and he has said he’ll keep his options open.
In just over ten minutes per game, Brown averaged three points, 2.1 rebounds, and .45 blocks per contest for the Wolfpack last season as a true freshman.
