This summer, Brown won a starting role for the United States squad that captured the FIBA U17 World Championship. He averaged 10 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists in seven games. He also led the team in minutes played with 166.

In June, Brown revealed what he would be looking for in a program in an interview with SNY.tv.

"I'm going to be looking at the environment of each school," Brown told SNY's Jack LeGwin. "I want to be comfortable wherever I'm at, so I want to be able to enjoy everything with the school. I want to be able to have a relationship with the coaching staff on and off the court as well."
