It's not often that Columbus, Ind. has a star athlete being recruited by the likes of Ohio State, Purdue, Notre Dame and Michigan. But that is exactly the case with Steve Brown, S, 6-1, 200-pounds, Columbus, Ind., (East).
Brown can play a number of positions, and depending upon the school recruiting him, could end up at running back, wide receiver or safety in college.
Some people have even mentioned Brown as a potential cornerback, but Brown dismissed that notion.
Although several schools covet Brown's talent, it looks like a two-team race, with one probably having the edge.
"I go to Michigan on Wednesday (June 15). Michigan is having an academic day so I can see that side of the school," said Brown. "I am going to Notre Dame this sometime this summer, but I don't know when yet."
Brown does not plan on attending any summer camps this summer so his travel schedule should be light.
What is Brown looking for in a school?
"I just want to go some place that I would feel comfortable playing football the next four years," Brown said.
SMITTY'S TAKE: Brown is a humble young man. He is taking a look at several schools, but in the end I will be very surprised if he does not choose Michigan. There appears to be a good chance that Brown will make a pledge to the Wolverines next week. That's just how I see it. He is very comfortable with Michigan.
If for some reason Brown does hold out and makes an unofficial visit to Notre Dame, all bets are off.
