Jaylen Brown may be the best high school basketball player in the United States, and he lives about an hour from the University of Georgia. Can Mark Fox convince Brown to bring his talents to Athens?

As noted in , signing Brown appeared highly unlikely before Brown’s recent visit to UCLA. However, since Brown’s visit to UCLA, Georgia appears on the rise and poised to battle Georgia Tech and Kentucky for Brown’s signature.

According to the 247Sports composite rankings, Brown is the No. 1 player in the state of Georgia, the No. 2 small forward in the nation, and the No. 3 overall recruit in the nation.

So what can Mark Fox say or do that will make Brown stay home and play ball with the Bulldogs?
