Four-star guard Bruce Brown is one of the latest prospects on Michigan’s recruiting radar after putting together an impressive summer on the AAU circuit.
Brown averaged 14.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game on the Nike EYBL circuit this spring and continued his strong play at the Nike Peach Jam last weekend in Augusta. The 6-foot-4 guard from the Vermont Academy is ranked 42nd nationally in the class of 2016 according to the 247 Sports Composite ratings.
Wolverine assistant coach Bacari Alexander was in Louisville on Wednesday night at AAU Nationals to watch Brown in action. Michigan has been in contact with Brown’s coaches to start the recruiting process and Brown likes what he sees from Michigan.
“I like (Michigan) a lot because it’s not just a good basketball school, it’s also good in academics,” Brown said at AAU Nationals on Wednesday night. “My mom wants me to go to a strong academic school. They’re recruiting me. Not too hard, but it’s alright.”
Despite not having much direct contact with the Wolverines, Brown is already thinking about a visit to Ann Arbor.
“Oh yeah,” Brown responded when asked if Michigan is somewhere he might visit. “I think they said I would visit around September some time.”
