Flo40 No. 7 Jordan Brown remains undecided about his college plans, and several new schools are in the mix for the 6-foot-11 power forward from Napa Valley (CA) Prolific Prep.
"I kind of re-opened up and Stanford's gotten involved and also Arizona, too," he said Monday at a practice for this week's McDonald's All-American in Atlanta. "I'm just kind of waiting out the process now to figure things out because most of my time spent up until now was spent getting ready for this."
Stanford's Jerod Haase and Adam Cohen have reached out, while Arizona head coach Sean Miller has communicated with Dion Brown, Jordan's father.
"Both of those schools were schools that recruited me before," Brown said of the two Pac-12 schools.
Arizona doesn't have a single commit in the class of 2018 following the FBI investigation into college basketball that led to the arrest of former Arizona assistant Book Richardson last fall. Per an ESPN report, Miller was also alleged to have agreed to pay Arizona freshman Deandre Ayton $100,000, although both Miller and Ayton subsequently denied it.
"Just kind of waiting on how things go," Brown said of Arizona. "If things get cleared up, then I'm going to think more on it."
Brown has also been considering St. John's, Nevada, Gonzaga, Cal, Oregon, and Louisiana-Lafayette but said, "I haven't heard from UCLA recently."
UCLA did add a pledge this spring from 7-foot-2 Moses Brown of Archbishop Molloy (NY), who will play against Brown's West team in Wednesday's All-American game.
Jordan Brown has taken officials to St. John's, UCLA, Cal, and Louisiana-Lafayette. The destination for his fifth official visit remains in the air, with Gonzaga also in the mix.
"I'm just kind of keeping it in my back pocket for now," he said.
St. John's assistant Greg St. Jean is in constant contact with Brown. St. Jean and Red Storm head coach Chris Mullin also went to visit Brown at Prolific Prep.
"Yeah, I talk to [St. Jean] a lot," he said. "Really they've been there through the ups and downs, the times that have gone good and the times that have gone bad. They let it know be known that I'm the guy that they want and they're not going to give up on me just because of a bad game or show more interest over a good game. They're just sticking with me."
He's not in an immediate hurry to decide.
"Probably within the next month or two," he said.
