Wisconsin has a lot of good talent coming up through the middle school ranks right now. The 2019 class is shaping up to have some excellent young players making names for themselves during travel seasons and developing their skills. A headliner for that class is PG Matthew Brown of Kenosha, WI. Brown is a 5-8 lead guard who had evaluators and spectators impressed throughout the summer and in various camps including the Generation Next Basketball Camp in Milwaukee, WI.

Brown as a point guard has incredible scoring skills for his age and also shows promise as an all-around playmaker. He has excellent speed, his lateral movement is quick and controlled generally and he has some good burst in the open court.

Skill-wise, Brown can do just about anything at that level, be it driving to the basket and scoring in traffic, knocking down floaters or stepping outside with good range to hit three-pointers. When he gets hot from outside, the 2019 guard can really light up the scoreboard. He has good handles which he has continuously been improving and progressing, and his court vision is outstanding.

Defensively, Brown is another product of having great basketball instincts and quick hands. On the ball, Brown is tough to get around because of his speed and he does a nice job getting his hands in the mix on crossovers while not compromising position. He jumps passing lanes well too which helps him get buckets in transition also.

Matthew Brown shows a ton of promise and the more he plays the more he seems to impress. His ability to affect games be it scoring, passing, controlling tempo and playing hard defense was on full display in the Generation Next Tip Off where he led the Butler Elite 13U team to a championship victory. Expect big things from the young guard as he continues to work hard and progress each day.
