Life After Football is Important

Jordan Brown loves football, but that is not all that will be on his mind when he makes his decision down the road. He recently picked up his first offer and you can get the latest on this 2014 prospect here.

"Getting that first offer made me want to flip out of my seat," Jordan Brown said laughing. "It came from Duke and they are such a great school academically and their football is good too, so it was so exciting when I heard about the offer."

He found out over a phone call.

"I talked to a couple of the Duke coaches on the phone and that is how I found out about the scholarship offer. They had been sending mail and stuff, but I was surprised by the offer."

Matt Lubick coaches receivers for the Blue Devils, but he is the coach that delivered the news to Brown about Duke wanting him as a corner.

"I play offense and defense right now and I think I could play either side of the ball in college, but cornerback is fine with me. I like zone coverage because I am able to use my speed. I can play in space and break away when the ball gets in the air to make a play. I am a good tackler too."

The Blue Devils are now No. 1 on Brown's list being the first school to offer him and what they have to offer him as well.

"I really care about the future, but academics is what I care about the most. Football is here now and I love the game, but I care about my life after football too. Duke would prepare me for my life after football and I am really looking for a good education. That along with the offer helps them be on top for me."

A couple of other in-state schools are high on Brown's list as well.

"I like North Carolina, the big rival for Duke too," the 5-foot-9, 165 pound junior said. "I like Larry Fedora and what he is doing there with the team. I have not heard much from them yet, but I would like to.

"I also like North Carolina State. I was up there for the Florida State game and it was great. The energy was good, the team played hard, and I have some interest in them too."

This 2014 athlete out of Davidson (N.C.) Davidson Day School says he runs the 40 yard dash in 4.4 seconds and that he carries a 3.0 GPA.
