Rivals.com is reporting that Oakland HS shooting guard Jabari Brown will announce his college choice on Thursday.
It could be Washington or Arizona State (which made a home visit Tuesday night) or Oregon or UConn, but it almost certainly won’t be Cal.
The Bears were in the mix with Brown early, but that relationship apparently has cooled, and I’m told Cal has backed off recently.
Jabari’s mother, Fannie Brown, told me tonight that announcement will be made live at 2 p.m. on ESPNU, but she declined to say where her son will be when he delivers the news.
The 6-foot-5 Brown, who plays club basketball for the Drew Gooden Oakland Soldiers, is rated as the nation’s No. 22 overall prospect by Rivals, the No. 5 shooting guard. Scout.com also ranks Brown as the No. 5 shooting guard in the country, but has him at No. 14 overall.
