"Notre Dame felt like home," said Brown about his recent unofficial visit to campus.
Brown's father added to his son's comments about the recent visit to campus. "We've been looking at schools like every other prospect out there," said Christopher Brown. "When we've taken Boeing to the different colleges to visit, there has been nothing that compares to Notre Dame. Maybe Yale or Harvard, but they are in the middle of urban environments and I feel Boeing would be more comfortable in a setting of a true college campus. As Boeing said, Notre Dame felt like home and Boeing said wow. You could feel the nostalgia there."
While Irish coaches were not available during Brown's visit, quarterback coach Charley Molnar has spoken with the Connecticut signal caller. Brown knows the Irish would like to see him throw but school and a family commitment kept him from attending summer camp.
"I've got perfect attendance in school going all the way back in seventh grade," Brown said. We did not get out of school because of snow days until June 24th so I missed the first couple of camps.
Brown's father is proud of his son's accomplishments off the field as well.
"I couldn't be more proud of how Boeing has progressed in and out of school," Christopher Brown said about his son. "He's very good with his little brother (10) and sister (9) being a very good big brother and a very good person."
When asked about his conversation with coach Molnar, Brown said it was very positive.
"He said they liked my size and film, but they wanted to see me in person. I knew it would be hit or miss when we visited because of their vacation time. Coach Molnar also said he loved my name and said it was a marketers dream to work with."
The chance to trade football for a college degree is something Brown is looking forward to achieving. He already has thoughts on what he'd like to study and do in the future.
"I would like to be a History major and end up coaching and teaching."
Home state program Connecticut already has Brown on the radar and programs like Duke, Vanderbilt, and Buffalo also are showing early interest. Nevertheless, Notre Dame is a program Brown knows is special and something he's willing to work for.
"I look forward to meeting coach Molnar," Brown said. "I know Notre Dame is a special place and I'll have to prove myself to earn an offer from them. During my visit I had a chance to see the history of Notre Dame and the football side of things. "
IrishEyes.com will continue to stay in contact with Boeing Brown in the coming months to see if Notre Dame takes more interest in the class of 2013 quarterback.
