Five-star 2018 power forward Jordan Brown reportedly listed the Arizona Wildcats as a top-three program to land him, per 247 Sports' Evan Daniels. Brown also included California and Nevada as possible destinations.

The 6-foot-10 Brown from Roseville, California is listed as the No. 5 power forward per 247 Sports' national composite rankings and eliminated Stanford, Gonzaga, Oregon and St. John's from his list of possible schools.
While UA remains a high possibility to land Brown, he told Adam Zagoria in March that he wanted to evaluate the state of the program following Arizona's involvement in the nation-wide pay-for-play in scandal in college basketball currently investigated by the FBI.
"Just kind of waiting on how things go," Brown said of UA to Zagoria, who was writing for Flohoops.com. "If things get cleared up, then I'm going to think more on it."
Brown is a McDonald's All-American, which would keep Arizona's streak of players who played in the game at eight years, dating back to 2011.
If Brown were to join the Wildcats, he'd join a 2018 recruiting class of four-star prospects, Devonaire Doutrive, Omar Thielemans and Pittsburgh graduate transfer Ryan Luther. Arizona's current frontcourt consists of Ira Lee, Chase Jeter and Luther, so Brown could depth to a frontcourt that lost three players if he were to choose the Wildcats.
Arizona is also still in the running for four-star point guard Brandon Williams, former UConn commit Lukas Kisunas and Kansas forward Parker Braun. Graduate transfers Justin Coleman and James Scott are also names to keep an eye on to as Sean Miller continues to fill out Arizona's roster for the 2018-19 season.
