What I’ve been most impressed about with Brown is his attentiveness to being coached, and to learn the craft of being a big man. With his superior academics he will likely be a high academic candidate, perhaps even Ivy League quality. A hard worker, he’s shown tremendous strides in improvement. With hendrickson’s lack of heighth he can bring something to the table as a soph, given the opportunity.-Coach Max Ivany
