Troy Brown, USA, Shooting Guard, USA, Committed to Oregon, 17.7 Strengths
-Measured extremely well, at 6'6 in shoes with a 6'11 wingspan and a 210 pound frame. Big enough to play the small forward position in the NBA, even though he has plenty of guard skills.
-Swiss army knife who can do a little bit of everything
-Unselfish, high IQ passer. Reads the floor and finds the open man
-Continues to show flashes as a shooter. Has a nice looking stroke, both spotting up and off the dribble. Very good in rhythm
-Shows some potential operating in the post
-Competitive defender. Instinctive getting in the passing lanes and crashing the glass. Shows the potential to guard any of the backcourt positions, or even some power forward at times
-Highly articulate and intelligent. Knows exactly who he is as a player. Seems very humble despite being considered an elite-level prospect for years seemingly
-One of the youngest players in this class. Won't turn 18 until the end of JulyWeaknesses
-Just an OK athlete. Lacks a degree of quickness creating off the bounce, and explosiveness as a finisher around the basket
-Doesn't get very low with the ball, lacks some wiggle to his game in the half-court. Can't always get by smaller defenders
-Has a ways to go to become a more consistent shooter. Doesn't always shoot it the same ayOutlook
Brown had a solid week of practices, but was somewhat quiet in the actual game. He's a very well-known commodity at this point who impresses with his versatility, competitiveness and IQ, even if he doesn't share the same upside as some of the more highly touted members of this class.
