Brown exploring his options
Notre Dame is still in the hunt for four-star wide receiver Erik Brown of Fontana (Calif.) Summit, who is currently a California commit, but once was committed to Washington. "Coach (Brian) Kelly visited last week," Brown said. "He's a funny guy with high energy. We talked in the locker room and in the athletic director's office. He explained to me the opportunities that I would have at Notre Dame, and we talked about why I made the decision to switch to Cal. He let me know that Notre Dame is not giving up on me and that they'll be by again before the dead period hits." According to Brown, Irish assistant Bob Elliott will be in to visit Brown at school this Thursday. Ironicially, Notre Dame was the program that opened Brown's eyes to looking elsewhere, when he was formerly committed to Washington. Brown chose California, but Notre Dame is still on his radar. "Of course Notre Dame is still in it," Brown said. "What's not to like about them? Their education is one of the best in the world, they have a great football program and a great atmosphere. Plus, I like what they do with their wide receivers. T.J. Jones is fun to watch." Brown is also considering Arizona State, Boise State, Nebraska, Oregon State and Washington. "I don't have a set date or anything to officially decide," Brown said. "I'll do what's right for me." Brown is set to play in the Semper Fi All- American game in January. Brown is a four-star prospect who is ranked as the No. 18 wide out in the nation. He officially visited the Irish for their win over USC this season.
