Mike Anderson and the St. John’s basketball program has been in contact with three-star point guard Avery Brown.

One of the most underrated prospect in the Class of 2022 recently updated his recruitment as schools continue to reach out to him.

Avery Brown, a three-star prospect in the junior class, stands at 6-foot-3, 180 pounds and stars at Northfield Mount Hermon High School in Gill, Massachusetts.

A native of Beacon Falls, Connecticut, Brown is ranked as the No. 138 prospect in his class, No. 27 point guard, and No. 2 player in the state of Connecticut, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.

Brown told David Borges of the Hearst Connecticut Media that he has been hearing the most from Indiana, Missouri, Ohio State, Xavier, Penn State, Connecticut, St. John’s, Yale, Kansas State, Georgia and Stanford in recent weeks.

However, the point guard holds offers Yale, Massachusetts, Brown, Pennsylvania, Howard, Fairfield, Sienna, South Dakota, Columbia, Towson, Penn State, St. John’s, Sant Louis, Old Dominion, Holy Cross, Missouri, and Indiana.

However, one of the bigger developments in his recruitment is that Kevin Freeman was his lead recruiter from Penn State, but the assistant coach has now been hired by Dan Hurley and the UConn Huskies.

Brown specifically spoke about Freeman’s switch to Storrs and clearly there is no one hotter on the recruiting trail in the Big East than Hurley and the Huskies, which should give Red Storm fans some pause.

There was some early talk and rumors about Class of 2022 standouts Avery Brown and Kyle Cuffe Jr. possibly teaming up at the next level because of their close friendship but only St. John’s and Holy Cross are the two schools that have offered both but Connecticut, Kansas State, and Georgia are expressing interest.

In past interviews, Brown said Missouri, Ohio State, and Indiana have been prioritizing him the most, but things are capable of changing as more schools enter and exit Avery Brown’s recruitment.
