Top National Point Guard Commits To Oregon

The Oregon Ducks continued their recent winning ways by landing five-star point guard Troy Brown Jr from Centennial in Las Vegas, Nevada. Brown made the announcement on social media with a viral video. Brown is highly touted as one of the nation’s top point guards going into college and the 13th highest rated high school prospect. Oregon also landed commitments from several other top 50 prospects recently to solidify their upcoming NCAA campaign, one in which they are expected to, at the very least, return to the elite 8.
 
Brown (pictured) is 18 years old, 6’6 and over two hundred pounds which matches the physical attributes of such greats as LeBron James at that age. Other schools that Brown was considering for college were Ohio State, UNLV, Kansas, Georgetown, Arizona, Alabama, and California. His sophomore and junior campaigns were overall disappointments. However, Brown earned All-American honors in his last season in high school with ease nearly averaging a triple double. He capped off his incredible high school career by winning a gold medal at the FIBA U17 World Championship in Spain over the past summer. Brown remarked “I think I will be able to play a lot of minutes and be able to play multiple positions and be a big factor next season.”
