Brown-Jones and Watkins both visited campus at the beginning of the month. The duo have played for EYBL Team Final (Pa.), Watkins in 2019 and Brown-Jones in 2018.
The commitment from Brown-Jones makes him the fourth VCU recruit in the class of 2020, joining Ace Baldwin, Josh Banks and Watkins.
The 6-foot-8 forward originally committed to Penn State before decommitting in April and reopening his recruitment. He picked VCU out of his top five schools, which also included Temple, Saint Joseph’s, New Mexico and USF.
The Rams only have one more scholarship for the 2020-21 season after five seniors will graduate this year.
