Brown looking for the right fit
Notre Dame extended an offer to athlete Noah Brown of Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII on Monday. "It was definitely a surprise," Brown said. "[Running backs coach] (Tony) [Alford] contacted me on Facebook and we talked a little bit last week. Then, [defensive coordinator] (Bob) Diaco came to my school and talked with my coach. My coach told me to text him after he left, and that's when I get offered." "They love that I'm versatile and can be moved around," Brown said. "Notre Dame is recruiting me as an athlete right now. Coach Diaco said that I'm a Notre Dame type of guy and that I'm fast for my size and I'm a physical guy." On Monday, Brown was also offered by Pittsburgh and Syracuse. "Pittsburgh and Syracuse were the same thing [as Notre Dame]," Brown said. "I didn't see it coming. I got offered by Syracuse earlier that morning, and right after I got off the phone with Coach Diaco, I got in touch with Pittsburgh, and they offered." Brown has visited Penn State, Rutgers, Virginia Tech, and Boston College this spring, but he wants to see a few more places before he makes a list. "I don't have any favorites right now," Brown said. "I want to take some visits this summer and then I'll narrow it down. I haven't ruled out committing before the season, but it just depends on how my visits go." "I will head out to the Midwest and see Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Michigan, and also head south and hit some schools." The 6-foot-2, 205-pound wide receiver said the Irish offer certainty got his attention. "Notre Dame is a program of great tradition and they put players in the NFL," Brown said. "I am definitely interested." "I want to be a good fit for their program," Brown said. "I want to fit in with the people there and the scheme. I also want good academics and a winning tradition." Brown said he is also hearing from Florida State, Alabama, Oregon, and Indiana.
