The Race for Mr. Basketball: Bryant Brown

High School
Illinois

Posted On: 10/11/18 6:00 AM

In this series we take a look at the potential candidates for Mr. Basketball in the state of Illinois for this upcoming season.  Here we profile Waukegan senior forward Bryant Brown.

 

Profile:

Brown was one of the most productive high school basketball players in the Chicago land area last season.  For his Waukegan team he consistently posted big scoring and rebounding games on a game in and game out basis.  He is a versatile inside-outside threat that can be a mismatch either way based on his opponent.  Top 20 prospect in the 2019 class.

 

Odds to Win:

30/1

 

Why He Can Win:

Like we mentioned above Bryant is going to go for huge numbers this season.  He could average 20/10 throughout his senior campaign.  He is a stat sheet stuffer and those are the types of players that even if you aren’t watching live make an impression.  Also Waukegan should have a much better team this year.

 

Obstacles to Win:

There were high expectations for the “Brown trio” last season before the year started.  While Bryant posted big numbers the team only went 11-16.  Will Brown get the help from his supporting cast to have Waukegan in the mix as a team?
