Four-star recruit Jameel Brown decommitted from Purdue after Micah Shrewsberry left to become Penn State’s coach, and now he’s one of the Nittany Lions’ top priorities in recruiting.
Brown, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound combo guard from Haverford School near Philadelphia, provided an update on his recruiting with the site StockRisers.com.
In the story, which can be found here, he was asked which schools are “heavily involved” with him, and he listed Penn State, Purdue, Notre Dame and St. Joe’s. He also said Georgia and Washington are the newest schools in the picture.
As for Penn State, Brown said:
“Prioritzing me for sure. I have a Zoom meeting with them soon. I already have a relationship with Coach Shrewsberry because he was just at Purdue.”
Even though he decommitted from Purdue, Brown noted, “They are definitely still in the running for sure.”
Brown said he doesn’t have a timeline for recruiting, saying he will make a decision “whenever I find the right fit and the right time.”
Four-star junior Jameel Brown recently reopened his recruitment and has an update for @Stockrisers. Billy Lange’s vision at St. Joe’s, an upcoming virtual with Penn State’s staff, and oh, Purdue has re-entered the mix.https://t.co/vknPP532fd
