Brown Visits KU
Blue Springs (MO) quarterback Ian Brown made the trip to Lawrence on Saturday to get his first look at the Kansas football program. The 2015 prospect came away very impressed with what he saw of the Jayhawks. "Honestly, I loved it down there," Brown said of KU. "It was a lot more than I expected. The campus looked great, and the fans were great, even if the game didn't have the best outcome." The 6-foot-1, 200-pound junior watched the squad warm-up from the sidelines before moving to the Memorial Stadium bleachers to watch Charlie Weis' squad take on the explosive Baylor Bears. "They love their Jayhawks, no matter what the score was," he said of the Kansas fans in attendance Saturday night. "People really weren't leaving, even when you could tell where the game was going. You can tell that they respect what Coach Weis is doing, which I like a lot." Prior to kickoff, Brown was in a group of recruits that spoke with Weis, assistant coach Dave Campo, and other members of the Kansas staff before they headed to the locker room. "Coach Weis and Campo talked to the group," Brown said with a smile. "I talked with the coaches that recruit our area." In his first year as a starter, Brown has been a factor for the defending Missouri Class 6 State Champions. Through nine games, he has completed over 62% of his passes for 1,534 yards, an average of better than 17 yards per completion. He's thrown 20 touchdowns and just three interceptions. He's undefeated since transferring to Blue Springs in the offseason, adding a passing threat that has helped run the Wildcats' winning streak to 19 games. "I could definitely see myself at KU," he said, nodding. "The facilities are really nice, and it's a more pro-style offense that I think I fit into pretty well. Everything was way past expectations."
