Fort Myers (FL) Dunbar defensive tackle Christian Brown is one of the top line prospects on several recruiting boards.
One of the schools that has made Brown a priority is NC State, and it's easy to understand why the Wolfpack like him.
At 6-2 and 290-pounds, Brown has a solid combination of size, strength and explosiveness at the point of attack. Brown has taken a close look at some of the schools that aren't too far from home and his next step is to check out some schools that aren't in his neck of the woods.
"I'm going to take a trip up north but I haven't figured out all of the schools I'm going to visit. I'll probably decide that this week or sometime soon. I've got to talk to my coach and he'll figure it out with me," Brown explained.
"I'll probably go out to Illinois, Kentucky, NC State, Tennessee... all of them. Purdue too."
Brown, ranked Scout.com's No. 66 defensive tackle nationally, has never visited any of those schools so getting out of the Sunshine State is sure to be an interesting experience for him.
"The area really doesn't matter to me. I don't think location is going to matter too much," Brown told Pack Pride recently.
With nearly two dozen offers Brown can just about have his choice of colleges. It's worth noting that Brown's teammate, defensive back TaJarvis Fuller, is committed to the Illini and in the past the two prospects had admitted to wanting to play together in college. Is that something that will still probably happen?
"I don't know right now," Brown said. "I haven't been up there to Illinois to see how it is for myself. I've got to see what it's like first. I'm going to take all my official visits during the season and most likely I'll make my decision after that."
Brown told Pack Pride that UCF, NC State, Illinois, Kentucky and West Virginia are the five schools that have been recruiting him the hardest lately. What will the biggest factors in his decision be?
"Most likely just me getting to know the coaches, the players and the facilities. That's it," he concluded.
NC State appears to be positioned well but more will be determined when he gets on campus for the first time.
"I have talked to one of their coaches," Brown said of NC State. "They've just been trying to get me up there for a visit because they want me to see the campus and get to know me a little better. I'm still looking at them."
Brown is rated a three star prospect and the No. 65 defensive tackle in the nation by Scout.com.
