The Recruting Diary

Recruiting has evolved into a year round evaluation period of the high school student athlete. We as readers have become accustomed to logging on and reading updates based on what schools a potential recruit is listing. What is often lost in the recruiting shuffle is the incredible amount of time and research that is done by these athletes and their families.

To shed some light on the recruiting process, Jeremy Brown and his father Terrell Brown will provide us with a weekly diary into everything that goes on with Jeremy and the recruiting process. Jeremy Brown is a 5-10, 170-pound defensive back from Orlando (Fla.) Boone High School.

    Terrell Brown had the following to say:

    "Jeremy was excited and honored to learn about his nomination for the 2008 U.S. Army All-American game. His attention is starting to shift back to the field. He is focusing on the game of football itself. His desire is to sharpen his ball skills, stay focused and lead the Braves to the CHAMPIONSHIP. There are so many awesome offers on the table. Jeremy is looking forward to the Official Visits, meeting the Coaches and players and viewing the campus. At the appointed time, a choice will be made."
