Track signee Shaquan Brown to play football?

Shaquan Brown, a wide receiver prospect from Paterson, New Jersey, signed a Letter of Intent to run track at Louisville last November. The 6'3, 190-pound All-Area pick tells that now he'll be playing football for the Cardinals as well.

Shaquan Brown, a 6-foot-3, 190 pound wide receiver from Kennedy HS in Paterson, N.J., has signed a letter of intent to run track for Louisville, but he will wind up seeing his scholarship transfer to football.

"I signed with them in the early signing period for track, but I am going to play football as well. They said that they will have to transfer my scholarship over to football, because if you play football then it counts against the football scholarship count," Brown explained.

Brown took his official visit to Louisville back in November (11/4).

"The town of Louisville itself is a beautiful place. I really felt like I fit in, and the coaching staff is great."

Brown earned All Area, All County, and All League honors after a successful senior season on the field.
