If Jordan Brown opts to transfer from Nevada, he'll have a hefty list of suitors – including Ohio State.
The 6-foot-11, 210-pound big man who entered college as a five-star prospect placed his name in the transfer portal due to a coaching change. While he's considering taking his name out of the portal, Brown is weighing his options and has had numerous power schools chasing him, per 247Sports. If he transfers, he would have to sit out the 2019-20 season.
“We’ve had Kentucky reach out, Arizona, Cal, Oregon, Baylor, Miami, Pitt, Ohio State, Louisiana-Lafayette, my old college,” Dion Brown, Jordan's father, told 247Sports. “St. Mary’s, there’s quite a few people reaching out.”
Arizona and Kentucky hope to have him visit their campuses, 247Sports reported. Brown's father said there is "nothing set in stone" and new schools continue to contact them.
Brown averaged three points and 2.1 rebounds in 10 minutes per game as a freshman last season. Prior to heading to Nevada, he was the No. 19 recruit in the nation.
Though Ohio State will not add another player with eligibility for the 2019-20 season due to limited available minutes, Chris Holtmann has expressed interest in remaining active in the transfer market for players who must sit out a year. Adding C.J. Walker, a Florida State transfer, last year was the first example of him employing that strategy while at Ohio State.
