Five-star basketball recruit Christian Brown flourishes without a position

A.C. Flora (Columbia, S.C.) sophomore Christian Brown is a 6-foot-9 workhorse of a forward. But, if need be, he can transform into a shot-swatting center, a breakdown point guard, a streaky three-point shooter or a slasher who gets to the basket at will. Brown has Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Louisville, among many others, all applying the full-court recruiting press. (USA Today)
