State’s No. 1 prospect talks about why he likes UGA and Georgia Tech

Wheeler High School’s Jaylen Brown is the state’s highest-ranked college basketball prospect since Derrick Favors was the nation’s No. 1 recruit in 2009.

The 6-foot-7 Brown is rated as the No. 4 overall prospect in the country for 2015, and he will likely move up after a stellar summer with his AAU team, Game Elite.

I had a chance to closely watch Brown at the UAA Finals this past weekend, and what can I say? He looked as good as advertised.

UGA’s Mark Fox and Georgia Tech’s Brian Gregory watched Brown’s every move as soon as he entered the building.

They weren’t the only ones. The 5-star also attracted coaches from Kentucky, UCLA, Kansas, and Florida, among others.

Jaylen Brown has a visit planned next month to UCLA, and hopes to narrow down to three schools before the start of his senior season.

How big would it be for UGA or Georgia Tech to keep Brown around home? Huge. Monumental. Gigantic. He’s a rare kid who can immediately transform a program.
