Five-star center Moses Brown still considering Kentucky

Peach State Basketball

According to Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog, 2018 five-star big man Moses Brown just set two official visits, one to Louisville this weekend and the other to Maryland at the end of September.

The 7-foot-1 big man out of Queens, NY has yet to receive an official offer from Kentucky, but the coaching staff has remained in contact and has watched him play several times over the summer.

Maryland has been seen as the clear-cut favorite for quite some time, but he has said he remains open in his recruitment.

Nonetheless, the Cats are in the talented big’s top five and still possess 22% of entries on 247 Sports’ Crystal Ball.

Here are the quotes he gave to for each school on his final list:

Kentucky: “They just want me to become a pro and to set goals for myself to be the best Moses that I can possibly be.”

Maryland: “Same message that they have always been preaching to me, which is that they love me and that they think that I am the best big in my class; they have made me a priority.”

St. John’s: “They are the hometown team. They are making me a priority, seeing that I am from Queens, which is where St. John’s is. They got Sid Wilson and they want me to stay home.”

Duke: “I talked to Coach K once but I talk to Nolan Smith and Jeff Capel. They have been texting me a lot during the basketball season.

“They got a lot of pros, they win championships and they develop. That is definitely something that I am looking for in a program.”

Louisville: “They are making me a priority and they think that I am the No. 1 center in my class, which I do agree, but I am working hard.”

Kentucky has prioritized some of the other top bigs in America, but will likely re-engage with Brown when the class of 2018 starts shaping up and the staff has the opportunity to evaluate his game a little further.

It’s crazy to think a guy as incredible as Brown has yet to receive a scholarship offer, but as always, you’ve got to trust Coach Cal.

Go Cats.

    What you gotta ask yourself big fella….how are those players doing in pro ball? I’ll answer that for ya….nowhere near as good as the UK guys as a whole. Also take a look at how many guys come back to our program and rep it AFTER they turn pro. If you want challenged and you’re willing to man up and meet that challenge come to UK. If you’re willing to do this I can assure you that you’ll be far better off in the long run. History speaks for itself. If you don’t believe me give Boldin (Duke) a call. Chances are if he came here (like he wanted instead of listening to his parents) he’d be a millionaire by now instead of hoping for minutes next year at Duke.

      He doesn’t have an offer, so it may not be his choice.
