Brown hasn't talked about his decision publicly since last week and wasn't taking or returning calls from reporters Sunday. Troy Everhart, Brown's coach, told InsideTheVille.com Monday morning that he had "no comment" about the report from Bucknuts.com. Everhart said he would meet with Brown and his parents Monday to finalize a decision. Brown will sign a LOI early Wednesday and a signing day ceremony at his school will be held at noon.
BUZZ: All signs point to Louisville, who targeted the talented athlete as their No. 1 quarterback recruit.
UPDATE: Brown's coach confirmed his commitment to Louisville Monday morning.
That's when the fun began. Word started to leak out Sunday night following his visit that the Bulls had jumped ahead of the Cardinals in the race to land Chandler's signature on Wednesday. Chandler spoke briefly with the South Florida Scout.com website Sunday night but didn't offer any insight into which way he's leaning.
BUZZ: Officially, Chandler is down to four programs - Louisville, USF, Syracuse and Colorado State. In reality, it's a battle between Louisville and South Florida. While the buzz following his visit to USF centered around the Bulls possibly taking the lead late, sources at Louisville still sounded confident Monday morning. Three of Chandler's Northwestern teammates are expected to sign with Louisville this week. Will the three-star prospect make four? If nothing else, there's now plenty of drama surrounding Chandler's decision.
"LSU made a great impression, and I can say that they are in a really good spot," Boone told the LSU Scout.com site. "I just need to think over things with my family and coaches, and then I will feel comfortable making the decision for signing day."
BUZZ: While the signs point to LSU, Louisville isn't ready to write him off just yet. Conventional wisdom says he's SEC-bound, but Boone didn't commit to LSU on his visit, potentially still leaving the door open for the Cardinals. We'll continue to track Boone until he announces a decision.
"I got a lot of my questions answered," Brown said. "I just wanted to know more about the defense, where I would play and how they were going to use me. They said I'd be middle but they'd move me around and try to utilize me [different ways]. They said they've got about two [scholarships] left now but they'll save one for me. They said they'll wait for me until the end – me and Dominique Brown."
Brown continues to play his recruitment close to vest, but told InsideTheVille.com Friday night that he would likely go to the same school as Dominique Brown. Brown is planning a signing day announcement at his school.
BUZZ: Despite a report last week from a Cincinnati website that Brown would keep his commitment to the Bearcats, InsideTheVille.com continues to hear that Louisville is in position to sign Brown on National Signing Day.
