Greg Brown

247Sports national recruiting analyst Evan Daniels has logged a new prediction in favor of Texas for five-star forward Greg Brown, the only uncommitted prospect in the 2020 class with a UK scholarship offer.

Brown — a 6-foot-9 recruit from Austin, Texas — has a list that includes UK, Auburn, Memphis, Michigan and Texas, and the hometown Longhorns have become a major favorite in recent weeks. Brown is expected to announce his college decision April 24.

He and five-star guard Jalen Green are the only uncommitted players in the top 50 of the 247Sports composite rankings that are looking at college careers. Brown is No. 9 overall in the class, and Green is No. 3 in those rankings. Green is expected to announce his college decision Friday.

Greg Brown

There’s no question which school is the favorite in the recruitment of five-star forward Greg Brown. It’s the hometown Texas Longhorns.

Brown — a 6-foot-9 prospect from Austin, Texas and the son of a former Longhorns football standout — has narrowed his college choices to Auburn, Kentucky, Memphis, Michigan and Texas, and he plans to announce a decision April 24.

The Longhorns were seen as the frontrunners early in Brown’s recruitment, but Memphis emerged as a possible favorite more recently and UK and Auburn have often been mentioned as legitimate landing spots.

Greg Brown

Five-star basketball prospect Greg Brown will announce his college decision April 24, national recruiting expert Andrew Slater reported Saturday.

Brown — a 6-foot-9 forward from Austin, Texas — has narrowed his recruiting list to Kentucky, Auburn, Memphis, Michigan and Texas, and he’s taken official visits to all five of those schools. Memphis had been seen as a possible favorite in recent months, but — just in the past few days — Slater and fellow national recruiting analyst Corey Evans have logged predictions in favor of Texas, the hometown school.

Brown’s father played football for Texas, and the family has grown especially close to Longhorns Coach Shaka Smart, who it appears will return to the school for his sixth season. Brown is the No. 9 overall player in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.

McDaniels

Not much is known about the recruitment of Jaden McDaniels, a 6-foot-10 forward from Seattle who has emerged as one of the best basketball prospects nationally for the class of 2019.

McDaniels hosted John Calipari for an in-home visit last week, and he’s also had confirmed meetings with coaches from Texas and San Diego State, where his brother is a star player, in recent days. Arizona, Kansas and Washington are among the many others chasing McDaniels, who is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 4 overall prospect in the class.

247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer has now logged a Crystal Ball pick in favor of Texas for McDaniels, who’s expected to wait until the spring to make a college decision. He has not yet announced any campus visits.

Five-star combo guard Quentin Grimes will announce his college decision at 7:30 p.m. ET Wednesday, and the finalists are Kentucky, Kansas, Marquette and Texas.

Grimes — a 6-foot-5 prospect from the Houston area — emerged this fall as a major UK recruiting target. In fact, he was the first prospect to get a visit from UK Coach John Calipari during the fall recruiting period that began in September.

Kansas and Texas go into Wednesday night’s announcement as the two favorites in Grimes’ recruitment, however, and the Jayhawks have a majority of the predictions on Grimes’ 247Sports Crystal Ball page. Kansas’ Bill Self and Texas’ Shaka Smart have both visited Grimes in recent days.

Johnson

Kentucky missed out on No. 1 recruit R.J. Barrett on Friday, but the Wildcats look to be in a good spot to land five-star prospect Keldon Johnson on Saturday night.

Grimes

Five-star combo guard Quentin Grimes got a visit from Kansas on Sunday, according to Scout.com analyst Evan Daniels, and it was the second time in less than a week that the Jayhawks made the trip.

Bill Self and the entire Kansas coaching staff were in the Houston area Monday to visit Grimes, the No. 16 overall recruit in the 247Sports composite rankings for the class of 2018.

The Jayhawks have all of the picks on Grimes’ Crystal Ball page, but recruiting insiders have told the Herald-Leader in recent days that the recruitment is still a tough one to handicap. There have been various degrees of buzz for each of the other three schools on Grimes’ final list: UK, Marquette and Texas.
