Kentucky still in the running for Nevada transfer Jordan Brown

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.

Now, Ben Parker of 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.

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.

    I am just really not sure about this kid. I feel it’s a little bit of a stretch to think he can contribute at a high level in a power conference like the SEC. I am really hoping we pass on this one and move on. I personally am tired of us chasing overrated post players hoping they develop into something they are not. We need better options IMO.

      He wouldn’t even play next year, you don’t think Cal can beg him ready in a year?

      I understand that but it’s not the coaching staff I’m worried about this kid played last season at Nevada and showed no signs of being anything more then hey small lift off the bench.

      Many would have said the same thing about Willie Cauley Stein after his freshman year as well… And he wasn’t nearly as highly rated coming out of HS and this kid. Sometime it’s worth it to take a chance. I doubt Cal will stop recruiting others just because he transfers into the program.

      What’s wrong with taking a flier on the guy if he wants in? Not like he’d be taking up someone’s scholarship since we always have 3 extra lately.

    Why would anyone be considering Arizona right now?

    All signs indicated Arizona is going to get a new coach and some type of probabation from the NCAA. Of course they could pull a Tarheel …

    Obviously Zona is copying the tar hole play book of deny, deny, deny. What they don’t understand is that the ACC owns the corrupt NCAA, and Arizona is not a member.

    One would think Arizona is out

    This is going to sounds harsh, but this kid will not make the NBA. St. Mary’s, OSU, or Arizona St are thus kids best option for a memorable NCAA experience. At UK, I could see him being a bench contributor at best.

    Nevada is a experience first school that’s why he hardly played.
