Notre Dame Recruiting Corner Brown

<P>Another player Notre Dame is recruiting is cornerback Phillip Brown. The Hampton Virginia corner has everyone after him but it appears Brown would like to stay close to home. </P>

When you are 5-11, 185 pounds and smoked a 4.33 at a recent Nike camp, college coaches are going to take notice. Coaches have taken notice of Phillip Brown.

Brown played both wide receiver and corner last year. He had 31 receptions for 800 yards and 30 rushing attempts for over 400 yards. He also had 4 interceptions and returned 4 punts for touchdowns.

"I have quite a few offers. Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Virginia, North Carolina State, Michigan State, Clemson, Pitt, West Virginia and Indiana. I pretty much want to stay close to home so my family can see me play."

I asked Phillip if Miami, Florida State, Michigan or Notre Dame offered if he would consider schools like that. "No, I wouldn't consider any of those schools. I am pretty sure I want to stay within three hours of driving. Virginia Tech, Virginia and North Carolina State are the top teams and they are close to home.

Comments. Another player they are recruiting but Brown seemed set on which schools he is interested in. A great kid none the less. I don't see anyone else getting into the race but you never know. Top Stories
