UCLA Basketball Lands Five-Star Recruit Moses Brown

The UCLA basketball program scored big on the recruiting trail to start the week.

On Monday afternoon, five-star center Moses Brown announced in an exclusive video with SLAM Magazine that he has decided to take his talents to the West Coast.

The 7-footer current stars at Archbishop Molloy High School in Queens, New York.

“What I was really looking for was somewhere I could just be comfortable and just go work on my game without any distractions,” Moses told SLAM. “I decided to choose UCLA because with the rich basketball tradition I can see myself developing and working on my game and being ready for the next level. The players there are very motivated like myself. They work hard just like I do and being around that is a recipe for success.”

Brown is the top recruit in the state of New York and the No. 2 center in the country. On the national scene, Brown is the No. 21 overall player in the Class of 2018.

Brown also held offers from programs like Kansas, Louisville, Seton Hall, Florida State, Alabama, UConn and others.

You can catch a glimpse of Brown in the 2018 McDonald’s All-American Game on March 28 live from Atlanta’s Pillips Arena. The game will air on ESPN, with Brown being a member of the East team along with other star recruits like Zion Williamson and Jalen Smith.
