El Cajon (Calif.) Grossmont Community College cornerback Kweishi Brown, who will take an official visit to Arkansas beginning Wednesday, is feeling very blessed these days.
He's gone from a lightly-recruited high school player out of San Diego's Valhalla High to being out of football for two years to being on the verge of joining a football program in the best conference in the land.
"My coaches tell me all the time I need to realize the gift I have been given and make sure I enjoy every minute of it and to keep working and make sure I reach my goal," Brown said Tuesday night. "I certainly plan to do that."
Brown (6-0, 190) has offers from Arkansas and Kansas State as well as interest from Washington, Baylor, Kansas and many others.
But Arkansas – with defensive coordinator Chris Ash and cornerback coach Taver Johnson - was first to the party and that means a lot to Brown.
"Arkansas was the first school to star recruiting me Coach Ash and Coach Taver have made it clear how much they want me to be a Razorback," Brown said. "It's a school in the SEC – the best conference around. I can't wait to get out there."
Kansas State is hoping that Brown and Grossmont wide receiver Nick Kurtz will take a visit there before Brown commits to Arkansas, but that might not happen.
"Arkansas is my favorite and my leader," Brown said. "If I get down there and like it like I think I am, then I will probably just go ahead and commit."
Brown had 28 tackles with seven interceptions – one that he returned for a story - as a freshman last season at Grossmont.
"I feel like my confidence, my height and my jumping ability are the best parts of my game right now, but you can definitely get better in every aspect if you work hard every day," Brown said. "I want to get better with my overall knowledge of the game, reading the play at the line of scrimmage and things like that."
