First and foremost, the Purdue Boilermakers are getting a young player that will bring toughness to its program. Jameel Brown is a 6’3 185 pound combo guard that is a highly intelligent player. He’s from the Haverford School near Philadelphia. Jameel is nationally ranked as the 131st player in the class of 2022 247sports composite rankings.
Brown brings mobility and play making skills to the off-guard position. He is extremely aggressive, diving and attacking off the bounce. Unselfish, versatility, and a high basketball IQ is a part of this young man’s arsenal.
Brown is not a knockdown shooter, but he is efficient enough to keep defenders honest with his shooting ability. As a high school freshman, Brown helped his team to a state title. He demonstrates the Pedegree of a winner, that is hard to find!
On the defensive side of the ball, Brown has an active motor and can be very disruptive as a defender. He has the potential to be a lockdown defender; that can use his size and length at the 2 guard position.
Overall I believe the Boilermakers are getting a very good two-way guard that has room to grow!
