The 5-11, 175 pound speedster currently has offers from Clemson, Syracuse, Kent State, Delaware, and Rhode Island but expects that list to increase as West Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina and Richmond are all showing interest. "Clemson and Syracuse are tied for first right now," said Brown.

Brown starred last season at quarterback, defensive back and kick returner last season. "Last year I played quarterback the entire season and played defensive back as well after the 5th game. I played cornerback, free safety and strong safety on defense. I scored 14 touchdowns and ran for over 800 yards as a quarterback."

Coach Lovett is recruiting Brown as an athlete for the Tigers, and he will get his chance to impress the talented prospect when he visits Clemson on July 18 for an unofficial visit. Is a commitment to the Tigers possible during his visit? "It's definitely possible," stated Brown.

Expect Brown to commit before his football practice starts in a few weeks. "I will commit soon. I want to commit before the season starts on August 15. I don't want to have to think about it during the season. I want to take away a distraction from my team."

Education and playing time will both factor into Brown's decision. "Playing time and education are both important. Clemson and Syracuse are both good academic schools. I want to go where I can play and grow as a player the fastest. I want to maximize my potential as a player. I want to contribute to my team winning or losing."

How does his mom feel about his decision? "It's kind of far but she is supportive of me. She wants me to go where I'm most comfortable." Brown also stated that it is about 10 hours to both Clemson and Syracuse.
