In his quest to build a winning basketball program at Alabama, coach Avery Johnson must find a way to increase the number of highly rated recruits on his roster. He has a big opportunity to take a step forward in that regard this week.
Troy Brown, a 5-star small forward from Las Vegas is scheduled to visit Tuscaloosa this weekend, Hank South at 247Sports reported. Brown is 6-foot-7 and rated the No. 13 overall prospect in the country and the third-ranked small forward in this class.
Brown already visited Ohio State last week and will also visit Oregon, Georgetown and Kansas. Winning a recruiting battle against those schools for a player of Brown’s caliber would be a huge accomplishment for Johnson.
