Recruiting: OSU Never Heard of Jeremy Brown

It was reported earlier Tuesday by JCFootball.com that Jeremy Brown, from Pierce College in Woodlands Hills, Calif., had committed to Oklahoma State. That report, however, does not appear to be true since the Oklahoma State coaching staff does not know who the 6-0, 200-pound cornerback is and has never offered a scholarship, Pierce head coach Efrain Martinez confirmed Tuesday afternoon.

Brown told JCFootball.com's Scott Eklund, "I committed to Oklahoma State on Sunday night. I called coach (Jason) Jones, who is the secondary coach, and told him and he said he was excited, but not as excited as he would be if I was more solid. I basically told him I was a soft verbal at this point because I talked with my mom and she said that I should make my commitment to the school I felt the most comfortable with, so that I could concentrate on my classes."

But first-year Cowboy assistant coach Jason Jones has never made contact with Brown or talked to him, according to Martinez.

"(Oklahoma State officials) confirmed with me that they don't know who he is," Martinez says.

Brown recently transferred to Pierce College from the College of the Siskiyous in Weed, Calif., (which is not to be confused with the College of the Sequoias, which is located in Visalia, Calif.), and Martinez says as the head coach he hasn't even gotten a chance to get to know the youngster.

"I hardly know the kid by his first name because we haven't even started spring practice yet. We don't know too much about the kid," the Pierce head coach said. "But I'm going to talk to the kid to see what he's trying to accomplish (by pulling this). There must be somebody that he's trying to impress."

Brown said he committed to Oklahoma State after receiving offers from Cincinnati, Arkansas, Iowa State, Arizona State, Arizona, Ole Miss and Rutgers.
