Missouri DE Jerry Brown Still Has Hawks in Top 3

One of Iowa's defensive line targets for 2005, Jerry Brown of Missouri, recently visited Nebraska for a Junior Day event. Brown enjoyed his visit, but the Hawkeyes are still near the top of his list.

Defensive end, Jerry Brown is making the rounds, this last time taking place at the University of Nebraska for "Junior Day"

Brown got a chance to see Nebraska scrimmage and got a chance to meet the person that would be his position coach if he ended up picking the Huskers. "I love that guy," Brown said of defensive line coach, John Blake. "He just sounds like a great coach."

Between the rapport between the coaches and his overall view of Nebraska and what they had to offer, Brown said that he went away thinking a lot differently about Nebraska than what he was thinking going in. "I just re-evaluated my favorites," Brown said. "I've got Nebraska number one, Oklahoma – number two, Iowa at three and then Michigan State."

Currently, Brown has offers from Michigan State and Missouri, but said of a possible Nebraska offer, he was pretty confident. "They wanted to get some film on me and I am pretty certain that after they see me, I'll get one soon after that." Brown said.

Brown said that ideally, he'd like to get his decision out of the way before his season, but will play the situation however it happens to pan out.

Brown finished his junior season with 70 tackles, including 30 solo, along with a fumble recovery and 12 sacks and 9 additional tackles for a loss.
