Chaundee Brown, Wake Forest’s top commit of the 2017 class, officially signed his national letter of intent on Wednesday. Corey Evans, managing editor of Hoop Seen, initially reported the news. Brown originally committed to Wake Forest on October 3rd and is ranked by ESPN as the 30th best player in the 2017 class. What else do we know about Brown?
Chaundee Brown, a top-25 guard, makes it official giving Wake Forest it's go-to guy from the 2017 class— Corey Evans (@coreyevans_10) November 9, 2016
Brown is 6’5”, 210-pound shooting guard out of Florida and has a college-ready body. He is a fringe 5-star recruit and has a very legitimate chance to play in the McDonald’s All-American game this spring. He ultimately chose Wake Forest over Kansas, Maryland, and Florida. Brown utilizes his strength and athleticism to attack the basket and finish around the hoop. He is also very skilled and can make shots from beyond the arc as well as the mid range. Brown uses his length and athleticism to commit to defense, and can be a disruptor on that end of the floor. In addition to that, he’s also a willing passer who will make the play that most benefits the team.
I said it when he initially committed, and I will reiterate it now: Brown is a monumental addition to the Wake Forest basketball program and I truly couldn’t be more excited to have him on board. If you don’t already, please be sure to follow him on Twitter @cbrownballin935.
It's been awesome watching these three go from boys to young adults for the past 5-6yrs. Hard work & faith pays off! Officially signed! pic.twitter.com/UXuqvV1iUW— Team CP25 (@TeamCP25) November 9, 2016
Jake reported this on Twitter earlier, but Melo Eggleston, Wake’s other commit in the 2017 class, plans on signing his letter of intent on Thursday.
