Former Oregon player and ESPNU100 recruit Jabari Brown visited Mizzou Arena to watch the Tigers beat the Navy Midshipmen. Brown left the Oregon Ducks after two (admittedly disappointing) games.
Coming out of Oakland High School in California, Brown was ranked the #26 player in the country and the #7 shooting guard. In two games at Oregon, he scored just 12 total points and had 11 turnovers.
His ESPN recruiting analysis says:
Brown is one the best shooters in the class of 2011. He can score in bunches when he gets into a groove. Brown can score in transition above the rim with flare, by sprinting the outside lane or coming off screens in the half court where he can knock down jumpers with ease. Brown can get to the rim with strong physical straight line drives and post smaller perimeter players and score through contact. Brown has range beyond the arc and confidence to take and hit big shots.
The student section chanted his name multiple times, and the Antlers found ways to incorporate Brown’s name in most of their chants.
Despite Brown’s poor play to start the season, he would be a great addition to an already strong Tiger roster. Because he played two games this year for the Ducks, he will only be eligible for the second semester next year.
