Pershing senior Charles Brown is having a breakout season, and is one of the most underrated prospects in Michigan. The 6’5 guard/wing is a very skilled player that is effective from any spot on the court. Hit the jump for early season highlights of Brown.
The tremendous versatility of the 6’5 senior has been on display all season. Charles has great vision as an on-ball shot creator that attacks the opposition off the bounce and consistently finds teammates for easy dumpoffs in the paint once the helpside defense commits. Brown is a great finisher off the dribble as well, he shows good body control in the air and is able to absorb contact while using his size, length and athleticism to convert at the rim off either 1 or 2 legs. While his shot creating abilities are certainly formidable, Charles’ shooting ability really sets him apart at that size. He thrives as an off-ball floor spacer where he connects at a high clip from distance on catch and shoot opportunities. Brown also flashes ability to knock down midrange jumpers off the bounce where he gets great elevation on his shot for clean looks. He’s also a legitimate post option when smaller defenders are checking him. Charles utilizes his size advantage with his back to the basket and has good post footwork for a wing prospect. We see Brown as a no-brainer Division I prospect, as his combination of size, skill, athleticism and versatility allow him to play 2-3 positions on both ends of the court. That is a tremendous asset in today’s pace and space era of basketball. See below for highlights.
