5-star running back Bryce Brown has been committed to the Miami Hurricanes since mid-February, but earlier this week learned through his father earlier int he week he plans to take several official visits later this year.

So what is his status of his commitment to the Canes at the present moment?

"I am solid right now," he told "I prayed about the decision before I committed to Miami. I am still praying about it. I am praying to see where my heart wants me to be.

"Right now I have decided I want to go to Oregon, Texas and Clemson. I am not sure about the other two. Miami may be one of them, but I have been there a lot."

Bryce's older brother is playing for Miami and it is the first year the two have been apart.

"It has been tough," he said. "We were always together. It is a little different, but I have adapted to it."

How important will his brother's location be to his decision?

"I have been playing football with him since I started. He would be there to look out for me if I go to Miami," said Brown.

The prize recruit is in the middle of a series of recruiting visits with mentor Bryant Butler and several other top recruits.

"Right now we are on a Midwestern tour. We saw Kansas, Nebraska and we are visiting Northern Illinois tomorrow. Next we are going to Notre Dame," said Brown.

Butler discussed the other visits remaining on the trip.

"We are going to Iowa State. Then we will go to Purdue, Illinois, Illinois State, Missouri and Missouri State. It is a non profit organization and we try to help them see a number of different schools. The community raises money for the trip. I drive the van around and escort them to the different schools. Some of the players on the trip with Bryce are Kevin Gfeller, Justin Puthoff, Laqua Mayes from the 2011 class and Adrian Butler from the 2012 class," said Butler.

Clemson assistant coach Chris Rumph is recruiting Brown for the Tigers.

"I called him one day while I was at school. We talked for about 45 minutes. I like him a lot. He's got the jokes," said Brown.

So will be important when the top running back selects his college destination?

"I am just going to see where I am the most comfortable with the people. I want to find a place where I would want to be even if I wasn't playing football," replied Brown.

As a junior, Brown rushed for over 1,800 yards and scored 26 touchdowns to earn All-City and All-State honors. Top Stories
