Centennial High School (Nev.) small forward Troy Brown Jr. has cut down his list of schools down to eight and Georgetown made the cut.

Joining the Hoyas on the list is Kansas, UNLV, California, Alabama, Oregon, Ohio State and Arizona. The five-star prospect is ranked the No. 1 player in Nevada, the No. 4 small forward and No. 13 overall player in the country.

Brown tallied 811 points, 463 rebounds, 238 assists, 131 steals and 42 blocked shots in three years at Centennial. He averaged 15.6 points, nine rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game, while leading his team to a 24-4 record. Brown was named USA Today All-Nevada First-Team.

Brown helped the USA U17 team win the gold medal at the FIBA Americas. He averaged 10 points and six rebounds, while shooting 94 percent from the free throw line. In the 17u Nike EYBL circuit, Troy registered 16 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest for the Las Vegas Prospects.

It’s a big deal that the Hoyas are one of the schools Brown is considering, but they will have to beat out some pretty good programs if they want to land him. According to the 247sports Crystal Ball, there is a 60 percent chance that Troy will commit to California. However, those predictions are not always right.
