Florida State College stretch four Johnny Brown has had the eye of coaches since he started stretching the floor at the Junior College level.
“Every coach loves the way I can shoot the ball at my size. As the game evolves, big men or fours can stretch it out and shoot the ball,” Brown explained. “And for me to be a stretch four/small forward that can shoot the ball is a big key. That’s the main things coaches say they love about my game.”
The 6-9 forward, originally from Florida, has Bethune-Cookman, Southeastern, Appalachian State, Stetson, UAB, Nicholls State and most recently Florida A&M.
The coaching staff were present at some of his games during this season, and finally after the conclusion of the year, the staff made a surprise appearance to his home to give him a scholarship offer.
“That’s a blessing. It’s hard to get a Division I offer in basketball,” he said. “And for a coach to come to my house and offer me…that’s a blessing. I was happy and thankful for him giving me the opportunity to play at the school.”
With the corona virus making it impossible for Brown to make visits, his recruitment has been on a pause. The plan has been to make a decision before the late signing period, but with everything shut down, Brown is in limbo about the possibility of that happening.
His plan is to still take all of his visits and decide after. He won’t be making a decision to commit to any college before taking any visits.
