Jordan Brown Commits To Nevada
The biggest news of the week in the world of Mountain West Basketball, once again came from Eric Musselman and his Wolf Pack program, who landed a commitment from 2018 five-star prospect Jordan Brown. Brown, a McDonald’s All-American, was the last unocmmitted player left in the ESPN 100 to make his decision and is claimed to be the “highest-ranked recruit to commit to Nevada since Luke Babbitt”.
Why It’s A Big Deal: If Caleb Martin, Cody Martin and Jordan Caroline all return from testings NBA Draft waters, Nevada easily has a top-ten roster in the national picture.
