Jaylen Brown (Scout.com’s No. 1 overall prospect in the class of 2015 also DraftExpress.com projects Brown as the No. 1 pick in next year’s NBA Draft) was asked about Kentucky recently and this is what he had to say..

“Kentucky, man I have so much respect for that program. Kentucky is probably the best basketball program right now in America,” Brown said. “I took a lot of visits. Nobody’s basketball program was as good as Kentucky. And … basketball is what I’m going to do with my life.”

“People say I’m ready to go (to the NBA) this year. People say I’ll be ready next year. But, to do what I want to do, I think it’ll take me at least two years. I don’t want to come into a situation like the NBA and have to develop for two or three years. When I come in, I want to be a superstar.”

Jaylen’s current suitor list includes UK, Kansas, UCLA, Michigan, North Carolina, California, Georgia and Georgia Tech.

And as always, enjoy a highlight video.


  1. Brown said he had about a month to go in his recruitment during one point in the conversation. He also said it was fair to say that he could wait until current college players announce their NBA intentions before making his own college choice.
