That Hersh took notice Brown and expect him to have a career like Evan is a favor/honor/blessing for Brown, not Evan. It looks like Brown respects Evan unlike some of skating fans. If his spins remind other fan of Evan's, where is the problem?
Well, let's see...

I don't know many of them but Keegan Messing has solid 3A, Denis definitely has one... Yan Han has no 3A yet... if Brown and Yan Han develop further, they may be rivals in the near future.

Like subtlety in ice dancing
It's really interesting to see the older performances of Jason. He's picked up and perfected so many moves in between them! Even comparing his FS from earlier this season to now. He went from doing an ina bauer into his 3lutz/3toe combo to using a reverse wally entrance instead (and the reverse wally used to be his entrance for the 2axel). And looking at even older footage, he used to do a Russian split. Then he learned the split falling leaf. He's improved his spins, his flexibility, his steps. And of course all the jumps and combos he's picked up over the years.
I am very optimistic that he has the talent and the dedication to get that 3axel and quad.
At the rink. Again.
Rogozine has an Axel

Thank you mskater93 for pointing about Rogozine!
I forgot about Yuzuru Hanyu!
Interesting thing is both Brown and Hanyu were born in December, 1994. (Han Yan in March, 1996)
Joesitz, I know what they scored at eac Nats is not so much relevant but this is what I found.
Japanese Nats Dec. 2010, Hanyu's score : SP 78.94(huge 3A, Triple/Triple) + LP 141.12(3A with -3GOE, no Triple/Triple) = 220.06 (4th)
US Nats Jan. 2011, Brown's score : SP 64.32 + LP 144.44 = 208.76 (9th)
Hanyu has 'e' marks on his Flips both in SP and LP at Nats. He sometimes tries quads and tends to show lack of stamina in LP. He was the current Junior World Champion so will not come to JW.
Brown's LP at Nats was excellent in every meaning and if he repeats that level of performance at JW, he may medal. He will need to overvome the lack of 3A by clean skate and sheer talent. If other skaters stumble, it will not be completely impossible to win.
