Five star center and UK target decided to play his college basketball at UCLA today. UK recruited Brown but never fell in love with his game and an offer never came from Coach Cal and his staff. At one time Brown was thought to be a UK lean but as UK took their time to offer it became less and less likely he would end up a Wildcat. Brown is 7’0 ft tall weighting at 210lbs and is considered a raw prospect. Along with UK and UCLA, Brown also considered Florida State, Maryland and Duke.
You could consider the fact that an offer never came from UK as a sign that they expect Richards and SKJ back next year, which would be music to BBN fans ears. Moses had recently been announced as a part of the McDonalds All-American game and while it would be nice to have him on the bench to learn for a year or so, it seems UK would have rather had the scholarship to offer someone else. If Richards or SKJ shock us and leave UK for any reason UK could try and land a graduate transfer or even a JUCO guy to add depth down low next year.
Best of luck to Moses Brown at UCLA. As always give us a follow on twitter @Ukfansallday for all things UK.
