Busy week for Brown

Josh Brown is a prospect on the rise. Last week, the 2016 Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek defensive end has visited three schools and picked up two offers.

Josh Brown visited three big-time college football programs this week.

On Monday, he visited Florida State.

"We got down there and they gave us a tour," said the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Brown. "The coaches really stood out to me. They treated me real well and I had a lot of interaction with them. I loved it."

Following the tour, he met with defensive ends coach Sal Sunseri.

"We talked about my season and the tape from the Nike Combine and he said he wanted me to come back to his office before I left. So before I left, I went back and he told me that he wanted to offer, but that he had to check with coach (Jimbo) Fisher.

"Then they had they had their meeting Monday morning and when we got off the plane, my dad called him and he told him that they were offering me a scholarship. It was amazing."

The next day, he flew cross-country and went to UCLA on Wednesday.

"It was a great," Brown said. "We started off with a tour and I got to see the basketball court, which was cool because of all the history. The campus was beautiful. Then I got to see the football offices.

"After that, I met (defensive coordinator) coach (Jeff) Olbrich. We watched film and he talked about how they run the defense. We also talked about education and my interest in the school. Then offered me. He was really cool and I had really good interaction with all those coaches, too."

Yesterday, he made the short trip over the USC.

"I loved the visit and loved the interaction with the coaches," Brown said. "I talked to the defensive coach, coach (Chris) Wilson. We went over a few things on the chalkboard. I also got to talk to coach (Steve) Sarkisian and he said he liked my film and that they would be coming by my school during the spring.

"We took a tour of the campus also. The campus was beautiful and they told us about how a lot of movies were recorded there.

"After that, we went to practice and it was pretty good. I was watching what they call the rush backer. That would be the position I would be playing, so I focused on his assignments and his job."

Along with the aforementioned schools, the Mallard Creek star has also heard from Clemson, N.C. State and Notre Dame.

In regards to summer plans, possible camps include, Clemson, North Carolina, UCLA, USC and West Virginia.

While recruiting is important, he is focused on helping Mallard Creek win another state championship this fall.

"I'm really going to have to step up as a leader and make sure we get another ring," he said. "We're going to outwork everybody in the state. That's what we're about – hard work."
