UM has in-home with Bryce Brown

Bryce Brown is the number one running back recruit in America and the University of Miami commitment received an in-home visit from the Canes on Wednesday. Read on to see how that visit went and what the latest on Brown is.

"Coach Robinson came for an in-home visit on Wednesday," said trainer/mentor Brian Butler. "It went very well. Coach Robinson sat down with Mr. Brown and Bryce and they didn't even really talk football. Bryce and his father got a better understanding of Coach Robinson and both were very pleased with how it went. The big thing is they got to know him better as a person and not just as a coach and that was good."

Brown, 6-feet and 215 pounds, also received an in-home visit earlier this week from new Kansas State coach Bill Snyder.

"It was cool," Butler said. "It was a normal visit. Coach Snyder just took the job and being a Kansas school, he wanted Bryce to re-evaluate Kansas State. He talked about the tradition they have there, some of the things he did there before, and stuff like that. It was par for the course."

Brown also took an official visit to Clemson over Thanksgiving weekend. Butler talked about that.

"Bryce said it went well," Butler said. "He had a great time with Coach Rumph. C.J. Spiller was his host and Bryce said he reminded him a lot of Arthur. He enjoyed it but it didn't blow his mind or anything like that. They didn't have the head coach named at that time. He said the fans and the atmosphere was great but it was nothing off the charts or anything like that."

That was Brown's third official visit. He had previously taken visits to Oregon and Missouri. All three school, along with Purdue, are still in the hunt along with Miami, of course.

"He's just feeling out the process," Butler said. "He's just making sure he knows what else is out there. He's still committed to Miami but just wants to make sure. Oregon was his best trip so far."

Brown is a five-star running back prospect, whose brother (Arthur) is finishing up his freshman season as a linebacker at Miami. In nine games this season, Bryce carried the ball 202 times for 1,873 yards and 29 touchdowns.
