Nevada transfer and former McDAA Jordan Brown will consider Kentucky

Two weeks ago, Nevada transfer and former five-star McDonald’s All-American Jordan Brown announced he was leaving the program. Not long after, word leaked out that Kentucky reached out to Brown about becoming a Wildcat.

Now, Adam Zagoria is reporting that the 6-foot-11 forward is considering a move to Lexington.

According to Zagoria, Kentucky joins a list of 13 total schools on his list of potential destinations.

Barring an unlikely waiver granted by the NCAA, Brown will be forced to sit out no matter where he decides to transfer.

Sources told KSR last week that Kentucky reached out to Brown with the intention of bringing him in this season in addition to another frontcourt graduate transfer or recruit. The goal is to bring in Virginia Tech transfer Kerry Blackshear Jr. to play immediately, while Brown would serve as a practice player during his time out.

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.

    If he would transfer to duke, the waiver would happen.

    When coaches leave, players should not be punished. Coaches dont have to sit out and neither should the players. NCAA needs to make that change.

      No. Then every unhappy teenager would transfer.

      Pay players, sure. But sitting out is fine.

      I really don’t think that many coaches get fired yearly

    I’m not sure that it’s particularly noteworthy that Brown is “considering” Kentucky as one of 13 possible destinations. If he develops serious interest at some point, I will devote more attention to his recruitment.

      for now you can continue to devote your attention to trolling and whining about Cal.

      And yet…here you are…commenting. It isn’t worth your time to read but it is worth your time to read it and write a critique.

      Who really cares if you devote more attention to his recruitment. He certainly doesn’t.

    If he comes to UK he will have to sit a year, but if he chooses Duke or Carolina,the “Fightn Emmerts” would immediately make a retroactive rule change that kids can be immediately eligible at another school if their coach leaves their present school.

      That is very true. Just look at Cam Johnson. It’s common knowledge that if you transfer, in-conference teams are out of the question. Jay Bilas led a witch-hunt on Kevin Stallings to get Johnson to UNC. He would’ve been a nice piece at UK for two seasons. CATS

    Nothing stopping Brown from attending UK for a year and then putting his name in the draft —- maybe the risk is worth it ?

      No risk in my mind as long as there is an open scholarship. That won’t happen though, as he’d just put his name in now. Sitting out a year and then putting his name in would do zero for his stock.

    Nevada……
    Really we’re going after their talent now. Must be dry on the recruiting trail.
    Maybe BCTC has some talent too
    Or Bucknell…..oh wait

      He was a 5 star recruit. Don’t judge players based on what school they attended.
