1 on 1 with Greg Brown

Unlimited potential comes to mind when you talk about Vandergrift high school star Greg Brown. He is a part of the super talented 2020 basketball recruiting class and is rated a 5-star by 247 sports. At 6-7 he is an extremely gifted power forward with crazy bounce. He is developing more and more of a dominant game on both ends of the floor.

You don’t see too many ball players at this age with this much energy and athleticism to dominate games at his size.
