Troy Brown Jr., the 6-foot-6 guard, from Las Vegas (NV) Centennial, has cut his list to eight schools.

Brown is down to Alabama, Oregon, UNLV, Kansas, Ohio State, Arizona, Cal and Georgetown.


LAS VEGAS -- It's been a busy summer for Troy Brown Jr., as the 6-foot-6 guard has shuttled across the country on the EYBL circuit while also finding time to try out for the USA Basketball Under-17 team (he made the cut). So it's only natural that he's relishing the benefits of playing in the NY2LA Summer Showdown, which is being held in his hometown of Las Vegas.

"I sleep in my own bed and I just drive over here," Brown said with a laugh after playing in front of coaches from Oregon, Cal, Utah, Gonzaga, Texas, UNLV and many more on Wednesday. "I like to do good all the time, but especially having friends and family here, I wanted to prove a point."

Brown won't get to relax for long, however. As one of the most coveted backcourt prospects in the Class of 2017, he'll soon have some big recruiting decisions to make. For now, Brown plans to narrow his choices down sometime within the next month.
