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.
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.

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.
