Brown hopes MVP leads to offers

Josh Brown walked away with the defensive line MVP award Saturday in Charlotte at the Nike Football Training Camp. He hopes that helps him put his name on the map...

Josh Brown shined Saturday at the NFTC in Charlotte, N.C. He has a lean frame with plenty of room to grow and speed to burn off the edge. The 6-foot-3, 220 pound sophomore has heard from a few schools, but the one he really wants to hear from has yet to contact him.

"North Carolina State, Clemson, and Notre Dame have sent me letters, but that is about it so far," said Brown. "I have been camping at Clemson since seventh grade, so I know they know who I am.

"My favorite school is West Virginia, so I really want to hear from them. I moved from there, so I still have a lot of family in West Virginia, and that has always been my favorite school."

Along with the Mountaineers, the Tigers of Clemson have caught his attention.

"I have been down to Clemson so many times for camp and I will be back this summer, so I am familiar with things there. I just love the coaches there. I really like Coach [Marion] Hobby (Defensive line) a lot and I like the way he coaches. I will be back at their camp this summer."

Expect more schools to start sending mail to the sophomore out of Mallard Creek now that he has impressed at the NFTC.

He hopes his performance helps.

"I had a lot of fun competing and I just hope it gets my name out there," said Brown. "I worked hard all camp, I competed hard, and I stay focused. Winning the MVP felt great and I hope it helps me."

Scout expects to.
