No doubt for Brown

Jamon Brown, a three-star defensive tackle from Fern Creek, committed to Louisville shortly after Charlie Strong was hired last year. This weekend, the 6-4, 300-pound Brown made his official visit to Louisville and told InsideTheVille.com he has no doubt about his decision to play for Strong's Cardinals.

Jamon Brown, a three-star defensive tackle from Fern Creek, committed to Louisville shortly after Charlie Strong was hired last year. This weekend, the 6-4, 300-pound Brown made his official visit to Louisville and told InsideTheVille.com he has no doubt about his decision to play for Strong's Cardinals.

"It was great," Brown said of his official visit. "I got to take my mom with me and we went out to a couple places to eat, chilled in the hotel and met with the coaches and academic advisors. For the most part I had fun."

Brown, who took the SAT Saturday morning, said Strong's staff explained how they plan to use him along the defensive front once he gets to Louisville this summer.

"We mainly talked about the academic side and making sure I'm qualified," Brown said. "Then they gave me their plan for when I get to Louisville, where I would play and how they would use me. They said I would play the one-technique because I bring size and have pretty good lateral movement."

"I think I suit that position well," added Brown.

Brown was one of three official visitors this weekend for Louisville, and he was joined by Fern Creek teammate Jalen Harrington and Ballard four-star prospect DeVante Parker. Like Brown, Harrington and Parker were early commitments to Louisville.

"We all had a good time," said Brown. "Since we all knew each other there weren't any strange moments. We just sort of acted like we were hanging out somewhere together. We had a good time."

Brown said he and Harrington both will sign national letters of intent to play for Louisville on Feb. 2. The nation's No. 52-rated defensive tackle said he's on track to qualify academically to play next season.

"I'm right on track," Brown said. "I just took my SAT yesterday morning before I went to UofL. I'm hoping that I knocked it out of the park. I'm on track to be there this summer."
