6'10 Ethan Brown of Orangeville Prep commits to Colgate University

Written by Josh Millican

Today, I have some exciting news to share with you: Ethan Brown, a 6'10 prospect out of Peterborough Ontario, has announced his commitment to Colgate University!

Ethan is a versatile forward who can do just about everything on the court with a ton of fluidity and pace. He has a great basketball as well as scholastic IQ, with a 4.0 GPA. He is the son of Jeremiah Brown, who won a medal in rowing for Team Canada in the Olympics.

Ethan has been playing for Orangeville Prep, one of the top prep programs in Canada, and had a standout AAU season with Canada Elite this past spring. He attracted interest from several NCAA Division I schools, but ultimately chose Colgate, a team that constantly finds a spot in March Madness by winning their conference.

I had the chance to talk to Ethan directly and ask him why he picked Colgate. Here's what he told me:

"I chose Colgate because of my relationship with the coaching staff, the caliber of basketball they play, and the excellent academic standard."

Ethan is not only a talented player, but also a humble and hard-working person. He said he is grateful for the opportunity to play at Colgate and represent Canada on the big stage. He also thanked his family, coaches, teammates, and mentors for their support and guidance.

An incredibly fluid prospect who can defend a multitude of positions and stretch the floor with the best of them. Has great rim-running ability and brings a favourable mismatch to the court each time he steps on it.

I'm very happy for Ethan and I wish him all the best in his college career. I'm sure he will make us proud and show the world what Canadian basketball is all about. Congratulations, Ethan!
