Gabe Brown suffered a knee injury that will sideline him for the foreseeable future, less than a month after he committed to Michigan State.

The Belleville High senior-to-be announced via Twitter on Sunday that his AAU basketball career is done after an unspecified knee injury from which it “will take some time to recover.”

Brown, a four-star recruit rated No. 110 nationally by 247Sports.com, wrote he expects to play during his senior season but did not specify a time frame for recovery.

“I hate sitting out from basketball like absolutely can’t function without being in the gym and not having a ball in my hand,” the 6-foot-8, 185-pound swingman wrote, “but I gotta get through this … (and) do what’s best for me and get myself back to normal…”

Brown, who announced his commitment to MSU via Twitter on June 20, is one of four in-state players the Spartans have committed for their 2018 class, along with forward Marcus Bingham Jr. from Grand Rapids Catholic, forward Thomas Kithier from Macomb Dakota and guard Foster Loyer from Clarkson.
