Talented QB Hopes for Wolfpack Offer

Crisp County (GA) Quarterback Joe Joe Brown has garnered several solid regional offers thus far in his recruitment. However, the dual-threat talent hopes a couple of teams that are showing increased interest put forth scholarship offers in the near future.

"I have offers from Maryland, South Carolina, Clemson, Louisville, Wake Forest, Cincinnatti, and a few others," Joe Joe Brown told StateFans. "But, the two schools that have been showing a lot of interest recently have been NC State and Alabama. They haven't offered me yet, but they are talking like they will do so real soon."

Brown's impressive on film, showcasing great footwork, mechanics, and the ability to throw on the move or within the pocket. He feels that his mobility and feet are what separates him from other high school quarterbacks.

"I think my footwork and how I can throw on the run are the strengths to my game. I need to work on getting stronger and reading coverages, but I think all high school quarterbacks have to do that so I don't think it's a big deal."

Last year Joe Joe passed for nearly 2,300 yards and 19 thouchdowns while rushing for 625 yards and another seven TDs. This season he's looking to even surpass those numbers.

"We are 3-3 right now, and I've passed for a little more than 1,000 yards and 13 TDs. I like our offense because we go 4 or 5 wideouts and throw the ball around. I'm looking to play in a system like that in college too."

That sounds fairly similiar to the system that NC State runs under Offensive Coordinator Noel Mazzone, who ironically is NC State's recruiting coach for Brown.

"I like Coach Mazzone. He seems like a good guy and when we talk it's always a good conversation. He really wants me to look hard at NC State. We've actually set up an official visit for December 5th... if I'm still not in the play-offs with my high school. The only other visit I have set up is with Maryland for December 12th."

Joe Joe pointed out that his current top five would be "NC State, Alabama, Maryland, Clemson, and South Carolina, in no certain order." He's fully qualified and although there's no rush to make a decision, Brown could do so well before National Signing Day.

Should we expect this talented gunslinger to take all his visits before making a decision?

"Actually, I think I'm going to take a couple of visits, but I don't know if I would need to take all five before making a decision. If it feels right on the trip, I could just decide right then. What's important to me is the coaches, players, and surrounding area of a college. If I feel like I can be there for five years and enjoy it, I'd probably go ahead and commit."
