Thanks to the new University of Arkansas Men’s Basketball coach, Eric Musselman, the Hogs could be in play for a former five star power forward/center from the University of Nevada-Reno.
Jordan Brown is a 6’10 190 pound power forward from Napa, California. He was the 19th overall prospect, 5th rated power forward and the number one player in the state of California in the 2018 class. Brown chose Nevada and became the first five star, McDonald’s All-American to sign with the Wolf Pack our of high school. The other two schools Brown condsidered were over California and Stanford.
Musselman was the first coach to offer him back in 2015 and continued to text him daily, showing Brown the love like no other team did. That in itself paid dividends and Musselman made history in Nevada with the hard work.
Some media outlets state lack of playing time as the reason the former All-American is looking to transfer from the Wolf Pack program. Brown averaged 10.3 minutes per game, 3.2 points and 2.1 rebounds per game.
Four other Wolf Pack teammates have announced their entrance into the transfer portal. Guards Jalen Harris, Nisre Zouzoua, Kwame Hymes and Jazz Johnson announced after the hiring of new head coach, Steve Alford.
If Brown decides to transfer he will have to sit out next season and be eligible for the 2020-2021 season. Unless he sends an appeal for immediate eligibility, he will not see the hardwood. Sitting out would help Brown develop his game at the college level in hopes to make a splash before heading to the NBA.
Fans, can Arkansas land this coveted transfer?
