Zach Brown is no longer enrolled at Putnam Science
Academy, and is in fact back in Miami right now with his biological family.
Whether or not he ever plays basketball for UConn is the furthest thing from
anyone’s minds right now, as he deals with a “personal health issue.”
Here's what PSA coach Tom Espinosa wrote in an email on Wednesday morning:
"I wanted to pass this along to all of you regarding Zach Brown. Its official that Zach Brown is no longer enrolled at Putnam Science Academy. Unfortunately, Zach Brown had an incident and was asked to leave the school."
Brown has spent about a week in Miami before flying back up to Connecticut on Saturday night and
had planned to meet with officials from Putnam on Monday, according to a source.
But it never materialized, and after spending the past few days in Connecticut, he flew back to Miami on Tuesday.
Brown was involved in an altercation between PSA and Montverde
Prep in the locker room after a game on Feb. 6 at Rhode Island College in
Providence. He returned to Miami for what had been a pre-planned trip the next
day, and stayed a few extra days to try to sort out some personal issues before
flying back to Connecticut on Saturday night.
He never made it back to Putnam, however. It’s
unfortunate he didn’t get a chance to meet with Caron Butler, a shining example
of a young man from a troubled background who turned his life around at UConn.
At this point, Brown isn’t looking at any other colleges,
or even prep schools. The No. 1 priority is for him to get healthy.
