With two wide receivers already committed and many still on in the mix – including the nation’s No. 1 wide receiver Joseph Lewis – Nebraska made an interesting offer last night to junior college product Marquise Brown.
The College of Canyons wide receiver has had a busy few weeks, picking up offers from schools such as Arizona State, Oregon, TCU, Washington State, Cal and West Virginia, along with his scholarship nod from Nebraska.
After failing to qualify out of high school due to a poor freshman year GPA, Brown has the ability to be at junior college for just one year after getting on track to graduate early, meaning he will have four years to play three seasons at the next level. This season, the speedster has 20 receptions for 393 yards and six touchdowns.
“We (Nebraska) been talking this whole week just about football and life,” said Brown. “Coach Williams is a really cool coach. We broke down scenarios in games and he asked me thoughts of which plays I would want to call in certain situations. He’s a great guy.
“It's definitely a good opportunity. He told me that I would be able to step in and play right away because of the depth they have at wide receiver. He thought I could be a difference maker.”
So what does Brown bring to the field?
“I bring a lot of speed and excitement,” said the 2017 junior college prospect. “I really like to get the fans off there feet whenever I get the ball.”
With so many schools coming at him in a short amount of time, Brown is still trying to sort out where he wants to visit. Nebraska has a shot at landing an official.
“I heard it’s crazy there,” said Brown. “I’m definitely looking to visit.”
