Basketball Recruiting

Four-star junior Avery Brown discusses his recruitment

September 19, 2020

This summer has been full of breakouts. One who could compete for breakout of the summer in the 2022 class? Avery Brown. The 6-foot-3 guard out of Northfield Mount Hermon, was more of an under-the-radar type of guy this season. He averaged 6.6 points, 4.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game. 

Brown is seen as a skilled playmaker who can lead an offense and lead his team as well. This past season, he helped lead his team to the NEPSAC Class AAA Championship. With his impressive season on the court and his development this summer, Brown has landed several high-major offers and is watching his recruitment grow really fast.

Amongst those involved include: Indiana, Mizzou, Georgia, Ohio State, UConn, Providence, Xavier, St. John’s, Penn State, Yale, and Kansas State.

What are some of these programs pitching to the high-IQ guard from Connecticut?

Indiana: “The Hoosiers pitch to me is that they see me coming in and making an immediate impact as a freshman while playing at the biggest stage in college basketball. Getting to the NBA is what I’m going to do and Coach [Archie] Miller believes he can get me there. The school also has such a rich history.”

Missouri: “Coach [Cuonzo] Martin and the Mizzou staff really put a lot of emphasis on my family and I and making me a priority. Coach and I went over the offensive schemes and he sees me being a great playmaker and scorer for Mizzou.”

UConn: “Although UConn hasn’t offered me yet, they’re recruiting me heavy and Coach [Kevin] Freeman and I already have a relationship. They know I am a Connecticut kid and to have an opportunity to stay home would be exciting.”

Ohio State: “The Buckeyes have had great success with their guards and to be able to learn from those coaches and follow in the footsteps of past Ohio State guards is a great opportunity. Coach [Jake] Diebler and I have been building a relationship for months now and he knows what I bring to the table and our work ethics match each others.”

While the COVID-19 pandemic has hurt a lot of guys stocks and has interfered with summer basketball and has led to the cancellation of events, Brown has seen a blessing in disguise by being inside this summer.

“Since we were let out of school in March, I have had access to a gym and over these past few months, my game has took enormous steps in the right direction and my confidence is at an all-time high and I never really see it coming down.”

One more intruguing thing about Brown? The 6-foot-3 guard has a 6-foot-8 wingspan and will be a scary player to face this upcoming season and is a recruit/prospect you should keep your eye on. He also believes he’s got the best vision in the country.

“I also believe I have the best vision in the country. Not too many point guards have the IQ that I have and is willing to watch as much film as I do to continuously get better.”
