St. Brown eager to watch ND

Four-star junior receiver Osiris St. Brown wants to put his offseason improvements into action. He also plans to watch Notre Dame as his older brother begins college ball.

Osiris St. Brown spent summer on the move.

Camps and 7-on-7 tournaments took up their share of time. Not to mention the four-star junior wide receiver spent a week in Germany with his family. He also transferred from Servite High School in Anaheim, Calif., to Mater Dei in Santa Ana.

Between travel to different events St. Brown and his younger brother, sophomore receiver Amon-Ra, did their best to settle in with new Mater Dei teammates. Now they’re turning attention to the season.

“I’m getting used to the plays and stuff since I’m at Mater Dei now,” Osiris said. “Just getting into the system, getting my timing down with the quarterbacks. We’ve been on break for about a week and a half now, so I’ve just been working out with my dad. He’s been getting us fit for the season because we’re probably going to lose some weight during the season. He wants to get us as high as possible so we can fall back on a good amount of weight.”

St. Brown’s father is former Mr. Universe John Brown.

Osiris worked out in front of college coaches at Sound Mind, Sound Body camp outside Detroit in June. He followed up by participating in camp at Stanford.

Once the season begins St. Brown hopes to put on film some improvements made during this offseason, specifically when it comes to route running. St. Brown has been refining some things this week with his older brother, Equanimeous, home before beginning his college career at Notre Dame.

Illinois, Kentucky, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Texas Tech, Utah and Washington State have already offered Osiris. The Irish have also offered Amon-Ra.

“I feel almost like the seniors this year are the same level as me,” Osiris said. “I feel like I could be a senior right now. I have way more confidence, especially since I’ve already played varsity. My route running, I learned more stuff from different coaches like how to get off the line and stuff like that. I feel like I’ll be way more experienced this year.”

Osiris has talked to Equanimeous about his experience at Notre Dame since arriving for summer school. Once the season begins it will change the evaluation Osiris makes given he could join his brother in South Bend.

“I look at it a little different because it’s cool seeing my brother and how he’s liking it,” Osiris said. “He comes back and tells us how it is. I’ll get a better feel for that school. If I see him playing and if he’s starting, if he’s doing good, I can kinda compare myself to him because I’ve played with him. It’s like, ‘I could see myself at that school playing with my brother again. That would be cool.’ I think I’ll have a better feel for the school because he’s there.”

Right now there are no plans to attend a Notre Dame home game this season, although that’s subject to change. There’s a chance the family could be at Fenway Park for the game against Boston College.

Either way, Osiris has high expectations for Equanimeous as a freshman wide receiver.

“I think he’s gonna be good,” Osiris said. “He said the receivers are pretty good but I definitely think he’s gonna make an impact and hopefully start. I think he’s definitely gonna at least get a lot of playing time and hopefully ball out.”
