Jaylen Brown, who is among the top class of 2015 high school basketball recruits in the country, was arrested Wednesday for his involvement in two traffic violations.
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Wheeler High School standout was arrested in Cobb County, Georgia, and charged with misdemeanor counts of driving on a suspended license and a stop sign violation.
Per 247sports, Brown is a 5-star prospect and the No. 2 recruit in the nation. The 6'7" small forward has garnered a ton of interest from top schools such as Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Michigan.
According to ESPN.com's Jeff Borzello, Brown is currently the most coveted uncommitted recruit in the country:
Colleges obviously never like to see prospective players in trouble with the law, but Brown is also far from the first youngster to make a mistake.
This situation could give some schools pause and force them to do their due diligence regarding his character, but it is tough to imagine it hugely impacting his options moving forward.
