Point guard Jenna Brown is back on the board after giving a verbal commitment to Notre Dame earlier this year.

Jenna Brown, the No. 11 prospect in the Super 60 for the 2018 class, has reopened her recruitment after giving a verbal commitment to Notre Dame in January, her father, Matt Brown, said.

Brown, a 5-foot-10 point guard who missed her junior season at The Lovett School (Atlanta) after injuring her knee last summer, won a bronze medal with USA Basketball at the 2016 FIBA U17 world championships. Her great-uncle is Larry Brown, the former NBA, Olympics and SMU coach. Her sister, Taylor, played at Princeton.

"Jenna just felt that she wasn't quite sure about Notre Dame," Matt Brown said. "She really likes Muffet [McGraw] and her staff. She did a lot of thinking about it before she decided to reopen her recruitment."

Matt Brown said his daughter is considering Virginia, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and Stanford.

"I would suspect that she makes a decision on her future in the near future," he said.

Even with Brown's departure, Notre Dame still has one of the top classes in the country. No. 24 Katlyn Gilbert, No 52 Danielle Cosgrove and former USA Basketball bronze medalist Abby Prohaska remain committed to the Irish.

The early signing period opens Nov. 8.
