Brown Looking for Right Fit

Fadol Brown enrolled at Florida International, but made the decision to leave the program after just one year. Headed for Itawamba Community College, things may be about to change in a big way for the talented Brown. Several major college football programs have contacted the talented defensive end about possibly joining their program this summer.

"After I decided to leave FIU, Coach Williams at Itawamba reached out to me," said Brown. "I had trouble getting my release from FIU, so I thought going to junior college might be the best situation for me.

"I would be able to play and not have to lose a year."

After reaching the decision to enroll at ICC, things have changed for the explosive Brown.

"FIU has given me my release now, so my path is going to be a little easier now," said Brown. "Instead of having to go to junior college, I have seven schools who are telling me I can come in this year.

"So far, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Marshall, LSU and Louisiana Tech have all told me that they can take me this year," said Brown. "Alabama is knocking on the door too.

"I am supposed to speak with them today to see if they can take me this year."

With his release now official, the North Carolina native has four years to play three after sitting out this fall due to NCAA transfer residency requirements.

"Right now, I am just going to take a couple of days and see how things are going to be," said Brown. "I am going to spend a few days with my family and talk about everything and then start talking about some visits.

"The main schools that are staying in touch with me pretty much everyday are Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Arkansas, LSU and now Alabama is coming on pretty strong."

Brown reports that the second time around has provided him some intriguing opportunities, but he is in no hurry to make a decision just based on first impressions.

"I want to take the visits and get to know more about the schools," said Brown. "I want to go somewhere that I have a great relationship with all of the coaches and I want to get my education.

"All of that has to come before football.

"I want to go on the visits and just get an idea of how everything is on campus and what I could expect."

Brown reports that he is unsure of when he will make the call on his transfer destination, but he wants to get something done sooner rather than later.
