Ohio State is in play for one of the nation’s elite players in the class of 2017.
Troy Brown released his top eight schools on Thursday with Ohio State listed. He’s the No. 13 player in the country, according to 247Sports, and lists Arizona, Oregon, Kansas, Georgetown, Alabama, California and UNLV as his other options.
The 6-foot-6 Brown is listed as a small forward, but plays point guard for Centennial High School in Las Vegas.
I would like to thank all the schools that have taken time to recruit me but I will officially cut my list to 8 ??? pic.twitter.com/MNMeuJW4kN
