Brown helped lead the Longhorns to their first Big 12 tournament championship last season and averaged 9.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game in 24 starts.

He was an expected lottery pick at the start of the season after being ranked the No. 1 recruit in Texas and ninth nationally according to 247Sports. Brown now joins Ramey and Jones as the third Longhorn to declare for the upcoming draft.

Texas is now only awaiting the decision of Jericho Sims. The May 31 deadline to declare for the draft is only a few weeks away.
