Indiana United forward selects Xavier

Jalen Brown, a Class of 2013 forward prospect from Indianapolis, has verbally committed to Xavier, ESPNHS learned Tuesday.

Brown has scored seven goals in 18 appearances with the Indiana United under-15/16 Development Academy team. He's the second-leading scorer on a team currently in second place in the division standings and nearing a spot in the national playoffs.

At Brebeuf Jesuit (Indianapolis) last fall, Brown had 12 goals and seven assists and earned Indianapolis Star first-team honors.

He is the fourth player to commit to Xavier for the Class of 2013, along with Walker Andriot and Jon Otting of Kentucky and Ryan Vilella of Pennsylvania.
