Scouting Marlon Brown

What's not to love about 6-5, 205-pound wide receiver Marlon Brown? Brown from Memphis (TN) Haring Academy High School is one of the top wide receivers in the nation and certainly the top overall prospect in the state of Tennessee.

Brown did a little bit of everything his junior season with 41 receptions for more than 800 yards and six touchdowns while adding more than 600 yards rushing and another 10 touchdowns.

At 6-5, he does a great job of getting of the line of scrimmage and getting into his route. Brown is exceptionally quick and has adequate strength for a high school junior but will need to get stronger before he gets to the next level.

Brown has offers from USC, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Clemson, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Clemson and Michigan. He also is an exceptionally gifted basketball player that wouldn't mind taking a shot at both sports at the next level. In a semifinal game against Rosemart he dropped 35 and 11.

Tennessee is the in-state school and they are making Brown a top priority but then again a lot of teams have him as a top priority. If Brown decides to leave the state, the Gators have a good a chance as anyone.

Brown carries a 3.2 grade point average.
