Earlier this week, ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2014 WR prospect Nate Brown 6’3” 210 Suwanee (GA) North Gwinnett, who holds a Missouri offer and who has previously indicated that Missouri and Vanderbilt are two of his top schools of interest.
Brown said that Missouri is recruiting him pretty hard, and he updated us on his recruitment.
“I’m constantly in contact with Coach Grinch,” said Brown. “I’m just trying to find a date to set up an official visit sometime soon.”
Brown went on to say that he’d like to take an official visit to Missouri early during the season. And, he talked about his interest in Missouri.
“Missouri runs a four-wide offense, which is what I’m used to, since that’s what we run,” explained Brown. “That’d be an easy transition for me. If I come in and put in the work, I could potentially play pretty early.”
Brown holds offers from Akron, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, Marshall, Middle Tennessee State, Minnesota, UMass, UNC Charlotte, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, and Yale, among others, in addition to Missouri. UCLA and USC are showing interest.
He shared some of his thoughts about Missouri.
“I was definitely impressed with the visit that we took to Missouri in June,” explained Brown. “What I saw of the campus, and the coaching staff, and the environment seems like a good place to be.”
“I don’t have a set-in-stone top five or anything like that,” explained Brown, talking about his interest in Missouri. “But, Missouri is up there. If I had a top five, Missouri would easily be high in there.”
Brown is planning to take official visits to Missouri and Vanderbilt before making a decision.
“I’m not in much of a rush, but at the same time, I realize that slots are filling up,” explained Brown. “I don’t want to stretch it out too long.”
