Most of the talk around Jaylen Brown’s recruitment has been about shoe companies. He’s loyal to Adidas, they say. Count all the Nike schools out.
Brown even said it himself:
“Adidas very much looks out. They take care of me and my team and they talk to me about things. They make me feel welcome. I know a lot of the reps and a lot of the head guys. Definitely going to an Adidas school. It’s a benefit. I play on the Adidas circuit, so going to an Adidas school is good. I already have a relationship built with all the reps and owners. It doesn’t matter to me if the college is in Switzerland. If it’s the best fit for me, that’s where I’ll be going.”
But as Big Blue Nation holds out hope that Brown will complete UK’s 2015 class, and next year’s roster, I can’t help but notice: For a guy who is so loyal to Adidas, Jaylen Brown sure does wear a lot of Nike.
Here are just a few of the many examples on his social media…
Also, the kid takes a lot of pictures of his feet. I mean A LOT of pictures of his feet.
They’d look much better with the Joe Craft Center as a backdrop, amirite???
