"We are headed to Lincoln on November 1st for the Purdue game," Dave Alvarado said. "We want to see the atmosphere while we are out there for the visit.

"We really want to try to be comfortable with the environment, the school, academics, the help that Tony will receiver and the whole scenario. Nebraska is a long way from home and he needs to be comfortable."

The Nebraska visit is only where the visits potentially start. There is one other official visit that is set two weeks after the trip to Lincoln. There are two other trips that are in the works; one is an official visit and the other is an unofficial.

"We are going to Texas Tech on November 15th. We are trying to get to Utah for an unofficial visit on November 8th and we are trying to schedule an official visit to Washington State for November 28th. Only the visits to Nebraska and Texas Tech are set right now."

Brown transferred from Anaheim (Calif.) Servite to La Mirada before his senior season. Brown's father says that there really isn't a timetable for a decision. It's really coming down when it's right and interest is really picking up.

"We haven't really thought about that. If he's comfortable then we are all for it. We just want him to see all of the options. Lots of schools are starting to show interest like the Arizona schools, USC, Cal, Miami and Notre Dame. He's picking up steam."

La Mirada is off to a solid start and Brown is playing a big part in that success. The stats are up and not only is Brown and his family seeing the difference a year can make, but the college coaches are as well.

"I want to say that they are 5-1 or 6-1," Mr. Alvarado said. "They have only lost once. Tony has 10 receiving touchdowns and is hovering around 700 yards receiving.

"Tony has had a dramatic improvement from just a year ago. The college coaches have been seeing it too. We are really happy where he's at and so is he."
