Brown Sets Official Visit to Wisconsin

Five teams are currently in contention for Donald Brown, who could play the running back or cornerback position in college. Out of those five, Brown mentions two that currently stand out, plus he has set his first official visit to Wisconsin.

When asked about any potential changes on his list, Brown only had one to report.

"I'm not hearing much from Virginia, and they've been replaced on my list with UCONN, who has a great kinesology program," said Brown. "Otherwise, it is still Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Tennessee on my list."

Out of the last four teams, Wisconsin is the only one Brown has yet to visit. That will soon be changing.

"I set an official visit to Wisconsin for October 29th. That is when I have my bye weekend, and they also have their bye weekend."

Could he make a decision while on the visit or shortly after?

"I'm going to make my decision whenever I feel comfortable, but I'm making the visit to Wisconsin knowing that it will help me make my decision. I have yet to check them out, and it will allow me to compare them to the other schools I have visited."

Iowa is one of those programs, and is also the last school that Brown visited.

"I'm really looking forward to comparing my visit to Wisconsin with my visit to Iowa as those two probably stand out the most, right now. That doesn't mean I'm going to decide between those two as there is plenty of time for changes, but I got a good feeling from my visit to Iowa and it will give me a better indication of how to judge my visit to Wisconsin. I really like the fact that both will offer me the chance to play running back."

What in particular stood out so much in Brown's eyes when visiting Iowa?

"Just the football program, overall, and the memories I took from my visit. The coaches are all genuine, straight-forward, and are real loyal. Coach (Darrell) Wilson is the coach recruiting me, and he is originally from New Jersey. He told me how last Easter he had all of the jersey guys over at his place to enter dinner. That just shows me that I have a guy that has my best interests in heart."

It also won't hurt the Hawkeyes that his father attended grad school at the University of Iowa after attending undergrad in Oskaloosa, Iowa.
