Interest Continues To Build

After making his mark as a wide receiver as a junior, Jamarielle Brown is finding success as a QB this fall. Now a few more programs have jumped on board.

"Things are going great right now," Jamarielle Brown said when asked about the recruiting process and his senior season is going. "I've picked up a few more offers and I'm really starting to feel good about playing quarterback."

After setting some huge numbers as a wide receiver during his junior season (106 catches for 2,021 yards, 28 touchdowns) Brown made the move to quarterback as a senior.

"I've passed for over 1,700 yards and 25 touchdowns with only 5 interceptions so far. Our offense is different this year as we've established a running game as well and that has helped me throwing the ball."

Three new programs have entered the recruiting picture by offering Brown.

"I've been offered by Western Kentucky, Arkansas State and Middle Tennessee State. All three programs have something I like. My mom wants me to go to Western Kentucky but we'll have to wait and see."

Last season Brown and his teammates made the trip to Louisville where they earned state runner-up honors in the playoffs. Because of this Brown is not letting recruiting get in the way of a return trip.

"I've dedicated myself along with my teammates to make a return trip back this year and don't want recruiting getting in the way of that. I'm working on visiting a few schools but right now I just want to continue getting ready for the playoffs in a couple of weeks."

At 6-foot-2, 170-pounds many expected Brown to garner more interest than he's received. He's a big time play maker who has all the tools you'd look for in a top receiver.

For now Brown is excited about the programs that have shown interest but hoping to get a chance to show off his talents on a bigger state in a few weeks as Lone Oak looks to win a state title.
