Interest rising for 3-star Nate Brown

Wide receiver Nate Brown of North Gwinnett (GA) High School visited Louisville for the program's Junior Day. The three-star prospect tells Cardinal Authority that he hopes to return again soon.

Nate Brown of North Gwinnett (GA) High School has become one of the top recruits in the Peach State. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound wide receiver is nearing a dozen scholarship offers, with most coming within the past few weeks.

"Recruiting has really picked up these last couple of weeks," said Brown.

Louisville expressed an early interest in the three-star prospect and welcomed him to campus for the program's Junior Day in February. He's also visited Vanderbilt, Kentucky and Mississippi State.

"Louisville and Vanderbilt were the first ones to offer me and when I visited both of those schools I was really impressed," he said.

Cardinals assistant Brian Jean-Mary visited Brown last weekend.

"He gave a recap of what they are doing to get ready for this upcoming season," he said. "He talked about what players will be leaving and things like that."

"I really like the coaching staff," he said of U of L. "They seem like a really close-knit group that really genuinely cares about there players and that if you go there you aren't just another number."

Brown has a trip to the west coast scheduled to visit Stanford and hopes to visit others in the coming weeks.

"I'm going to try to visit Duke and some others schools that have shown an interest in me," he said. "I'm also going to try to visit Illinois and then Louisville again."

Brown, who currently favors the Cardinals and Commodores, anticipates making his college choice prior to the start of his senior season.

"I want to decide before the season starts, like late summer, or after the season is over," he explained. "If I wait until after the season starts, it would be down to two schools and I would probably just take those two official visits and make my decision off that, but I'm really hoping to make the decision before the starts."

Illinois, Louisville, Marshall, Massachusetts, Middle Tennessee, Minnesota, UNC Charlotte, Vanderbilt and Yale have offered, while Auburn, Duke, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Stanford are displaying strong interest.
