Oregon added five-star Troy Brown Jr. to the 2017 recruiting class on Monday.

“I love the coaching staff and the style of play fits me,” Brown told Scout. “One guy that has done an amazing job of recruiting me is coach [Tony] Stubblefield. He’s always been there with me. They’ve been there for a really long time. I like coach [Dana] Altman as a coach. Their defensive is amazing and the way they run it.”

Brown picked the Ducks over Georgetown, UNLV, Kansas, Arizona, and many other Division I schools. Prior to his commitment, Brown took official visits to Oregon, Alabama, Ohio State, Kansas and Georgetown, according to Scout’s Evan Daniels.

Oregon’s style of play was one of the reasons why Brown wanted to become a Duck.

“Style of play is huge for me,” Brown said. “That’s one thing that it came down to. I feel like I can play in any system, but there’s something about getting up and down and getting in transition. It helps me shine and helps me standout.”

The 6-foot-6 Las Vegas prospect is regarded as the No. 3 small forward, and the No. 13 overall player in the nation by 247sports. He played for the Las Vegas Prospects in the Nike EYBL where he averaged 16 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.

Brown will be joining four-stars V.J. Bailey, and Abu Kigab in Oregon’s recruiting class, which is ranked No. 8 in the nation.
