Jordan Brown, the 6-foot-10 power forward from Roseville (CA) High School, will transfer to Prolific (CA) Prep for his senior season and is now down to seven schools. Brown is now considering California, Gonzaga, Louisiana Lafayette, Nevada, Oregon, St. John’s, and UCLA.

Brown’s father, Dion Brown, played college basketball at Lousiana Lafayette. He spoke with Rivals.com on Wednesday about Jordan’s transfer. “It’s the development and he wants to be playing with high-level players and against high-level players on a consistent basis,” he said. “He’s very much motivated to show what he’s about.”

According to Brown’s father, the next step in the process will be to take at least three or four official visits during the months of September and October. Narrowing down where to take those visits and when is something they hope to accomplish sooner than later.

“It seems like a lot of people have the same dates that they want us to come visit,” said Dion Brown. “We are still kind of in the works with what weekend is what and what Prolific will have going on. It’s a tough decision right now having looked at in general. We’ll look at it in more detail and get them figured out.”

Dion Brown told ZagsBlog earlier this month that St. John’s was working hardest for Jordan’s recruitment. He broke down the relationship with St. John’s to ZagsBlog:

“I talk to Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond came down here and St. Jean is kind of like the focal point,” said Dion. “And one the things that they emphasized with us, they run an NBA-style offense where they have flexible big man, and Jordan is a flexible big man. He can play on the outside or he can play on the inside. And I talked to Chris Mullin at one point, you can play against a team where the St. John’s guards can post up the other team’s guards so if you have flexible big men who can do things, you can post those guards and take advantage of those guards.”

247Sports has Brown is ranked No 6 overall player in the Class of 2018, while Scout ranked him as the No 20 overall player in their updated rankings.
