Three-Star Forward Mikeal Brown-Jones Commits To Penn State Hoops

Penn State men’s basketball secured a commitment from three-star power forward Mikeal Brown-Jones. The 6-foot-7 prospect from IMG Academy in Florida is the first verbal member of the team’s recruiting class of 2020.

Brown-Jones is a Philadelphia native who had other offers from Villanova, Temple, Saint Joseph’s, and La Salle.

He started his career at (shocker!) Roman Catholic High School — which has apparently become the farm league for Penn State hoops — before attending Philly boarding school Girard College and later IMG.

“I have chosen Penn State because they have been recruiting me ever since I was at Roman Catholic,” Brown-Jones told PrepCircuit. “The connection I have with them is great and I feel like going to any other school wouldn’t be the same.”

He’s one of the top 200 recruits in the country and the 33rd best power forward, according to 247Sports.
