PSU officially offers 4-star Philly guard Jameel Brown

This news was bound to happen any day now, and today it reportedly became official: Penn State has offered 4-star guard Jameel Brown from Philadelphia, according to Stockrisers.

Brown (6-4, 190) could end up being the most important recruit of new coach Micah Shrewsberry’s early tenure at Penn State, if he can land the highly rated combo guard from Haverford School. There will be a lot of competition for Brown’s services.

Brown was recruited by Shrewsberry at Purdue and had committed to the Boilermakers. But when Shrewsberry left for Penn State, Brown wasted little time and decommitted over the weekend.

Now Brown has his official offer from Penn State, and he would help Shrewsberry with the Philly recruiting pipeline if he decides to become a Nittany Lion.

Brown discussed his relationship with Shrewsberry with 247Sports after decommitting. And it’s clear he has a strong connection with PSU’s new coach. This is what the junior guard said:

“Coach Shrewsberry leaving impacted me a lot,” he said. “He was one of the main people recruiting me and I have a great relationship with him. I feel like with him leaving it’s not a diss on Purdue but I just want to make sure it’s the right decision for me to go there.”

“I recently spoke with coach Shrewsberry and he wants me and I’ll always have that relationship with him,” he said. “He was the main recruiter to get me to Purdue and he said he’ll always have a spot for me.”

“Our relationship has always been the same he was contacting me throughout my injury so he’s definitely loyal to me and he says I’m one of his priorities now too.”
