Brown made an official visit to Louisville two weeks ago and gave the trip positive marks. "It was cool. Everything went smooth," Brown said. "It's nice. They have real cool players down there. I like all the coaches. The [stadium] was nice and the in-door facility was great. The only thing was the weight-room was a little small."
Will that impact Brown's decision? "I'm not sure," Brown said.
Brown visited Minnesota in November and the Gophers are also in the running. "I really like the linebacker coach, he's been down here a lot," Brown said. "I like the new stadium. They've got new facilities."
Minnesota has an in-home visit scheduled with Brown on Saturday, and Cincinnati is expected to visit him at school. Louisville coach Charlie Strong and assistant Mike Sanford made an in-home visit with Brown last week.
"It went good," Brown said. "They weren't really recruiting me. It was more just a chill, laid back kind of visit. I like Coach Strong a lot, he's real cool. He seems like he wants to win and he will get the job done. They're looking at me for the middle of their 3-3 scheme but they'll move me around. That's fine with me."
Brown said he'll base his decision on which school is best for him. "Staying close to home is alright but I really just have to see if the place is right for me from an education standpoint and what I can get done," Brown said. "I want to major in education."
So who will the 6'3, 230-pound linebacker choose next week? Brown has a photo of him wearing a Louisville jersey taken during his visit to UofL on his Facebook page. Is that a clue about his decision? "I just liked the picture," Brown said with a laugh. "I don't want to tip my hand."
