2022 Northfield Mount Hermon (MA) point guard Avery Brown is already coveted nationally by Division I basketball programs.
The sophomore guard has picked up offers from Towson, Siena, Fairfield, South Dakota and Howard recently to add to scholarship offers from Penn and Brown.
“It’s truly a blessing, you know? My hard work is paying off and I just want to thank my support system and [PSA Cardinals director] Munch Williams,” he said. “More offers are coming in everyday and I am just staying in the gym perfecting my craft and staying humble. At the end of the day, offers are not the end goal and life is so much bigger than this attention but I am 100-percent grateful.”
Siena, who offered him a scholarship yesterday, plans on recruiting him hard because his game fits in perfectly with what head coach Carmen Maciariello is trying to do.
“Coach Maciariello basically told me that I can be the next big star at Siena,” Brown explained. “He told me that their point guard now is one of the best in school history and I would have big shoes to fill but he believes I can fill those shoes and supass that level of achievement.”
“As time goes on our relationship will become stronger but he believes in me and knows what I am capable of.”
As a sophomore, Brown has shown that he is more than capable. He plays with confidence, heart and high IQ. He had multiple double-digit assist games this season for NHM playing a national schedule and that’s what got coaches paying attention.
“I can score the ball with ease at all three levels,” he said. “My vision is special and I can pass with either hand. They also love how I can lead a team, be a general on and off the court and my athletic ability.”
Yale, Kansas State, Penn State, UMass, Stanford, Arizona State, Cal and Providence are some of the few programs that are keeping an eye on the 6-foot-3 point guard that will be playing his AAU ball on the Nike Circuit with the PSA Cardinals.
