Miami Recruiting: Rion Brown

Miami has three players joining them from the 2010 class, with the most notable in the class being Rion Brown (SG/SF, 6’5″, 2010), whose fast paced play should complement Durand Scott and give Miami more offensive firepower next season.

Brown has a nice mid range game and explosive moves to the basket, a strong leaper who can blast up and down the court in the transition game. With his size, it’s likely he’ll see some time at the SG spot, but he is athletic enough to play the SF in college. He also has a quick first step and should be able to continue to develop his ballhandling skills into a super guard.

The question for Brown is whether he’ll be able to consistently be a shooting threat once he gets to college. He’ll still be able to get to the rim, but it won’t be as often as high school, so he’ll need to prove to teams that they can’t play off of him. If he can do that, he’ll be a force.
