Brown is ranked as the fifth-best small forward, the top prospect in the state of Kansas and the No. 16 overall prospect in the 2021 class, and was compared to 14-year NBA veteran Matt Barnes by 247Sports director of basketball scouting Jerry Meyer.
There is only one crystal ball prediction currently for Brown, with Sean Bock of HawkeyeInsider.com predicting the 6-7, 205-pound small forward to the Jayhawks. Ohio State sent an offer to Brown on Dec. 21, according to his Twitter.

Ohio State currently has the sixth-best recruiting class in 2021 thanks to its pair of commitments in Willoughby (Ohio) Andrews Osborne Academy four-star combo guard Meechie Johnson and Convoy (Ohio) Crestview three-star power forward Kalen Etzler.
