Fort Myers, FL (Future150) -- The class of 2015 is strong at the top, especially with big men. There is also plenty of perimeter talent as well, including a couple of wings that can play multiple positions. The first is #7 in the class, Ben Simmons, who is committed to LSU. The other is #13 in the class, Jaylen Brown.

“I can play wherever coach needs me to play,” Brown said of his game. After watching him at the City of Palms, is it is easy to agree with the talented junior. On a Wheeler (GA) team that can only be described as "loaded", Brown plays a number of roles. 

He is capable of being the leading scorer (he averaged 16.0 PPG) but is also a good rebounder ( 8.0 RPG) and can find his teammates in transition (2.5 APG). He has freaky athleticism and has sprouted up to 6-foot-7 this past year.

He saw his stock take off this summer during the July live period when the nation saw what he was fully capable of. Now he is looking to prove that he is one of the top players in the class. The City of Palms gave him the opportunity to do just that.

“It feels good to be here [At the City of Palms]. I’ve been waiting for this all season,” he said.

When asked what some of his goals were for the rest of the year he had this to say:

“I’m just trying to work on and expand my game. I want to go undefeated for the rest of the season and win a state title,”

A state title is a very achievable goal. With teammates such as Daniel Giddens, Elijah Staley, and Future150 alums Jerron Love and Avery Patterson, the Wheeler Wildcats look poised to make a deep run into the state playoffs.

As far as recruiting goes, Brown says he has been hearing the most from Ohio State, Florida State, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Louisville, and Stanford. All of those schools have already offered him as well. Expect that list to expand before it gets smaller.

Brown seems to be on the verge of another monster AAU season in the coming months. Follow along with Future150 as we continue to track Brown’s progress.

This kid can flat out play! I watched him at the GA State Tournament this year (2014) and he’s incredibly athletic. He got like 7 dunks. It was crazy.
