Terp's Eye on the Future…Wesley Brown

2012 prospect Wesley Brown of Good Counsel High School (Olney, MD) earned the starting tailback role this season and is making the most of his opportunity. The talented running back with an offer in hand is really hitting his stride.

Wesley Brown knew he would have a legitimate chance to take over for departed superstars Jelani Jenkins (Florida) and Caleb Porzel (Maryland) as starting running back this season. Not only has he filled that role but he is excelling at it. Brown already has an offer from Maryland and with his outstanding play it won't be long before he adds others to that list.

Brown has rushed for 542 yards and 7 touchdowns in just five games this season. The last three games he has rushed for over one hundred yards in each one. He has good size at 6'0", and 185 pounds. He has 4.4 speed and can also catch the ball out of the backfield. He will put up big numbers over the next three years.

Maryland was first to recognize Brown's ability this past offseason. Brown was outstanding this spring/summer. He won the overall MVP at both the Bullseye Underclassmen Combine and Shuman's National Underclassmen Combine. Maryland saw Brown in person at the end of the summer and made the offer.

Maryland coaches have been getting to the in state recruits early and often and Brown is a key target for Maryland in the 2012 class. It is never too early to build the relationship and show the attention needed to reel in the big time difference makers. Maryland is certainly on point with Brown and really has a good chance to keep the talented player home and on the Maryland roster in the near future. It could be a long recruiting battle but Maryland is in solid position early in the process. Brown likes the Maryland coaches and having the first offer so early from them bodes well for Maryland.
