Brown's 14th Offer Comes From Oregon

Despite the fact he holds 14 offers from major FBS programs, Fresno (CA) San Joaquin Memorial three-star running back Chris Brown has gone virtually unnoticed in the world of recruiting. A recent offer from the Ducks has Brown keeping watchful eye on the program.

Do you currently have an offer from Oregon?

"Yes."

What kind of contact have you had with Oregon since the recruiting process started for you?

"I've been talking to them a lot more lately. They came to a game a couple of weeks ago and I started talking to (running backs) coach (Gary) Campbell. That's about it."

Has coach Campbell been the only coach from Oregon that you've been in contact with?

"Yes."

At this point, what is your overall interest in Oregon?

"I'm interested in Oregon because it's Oregon (laughter). I want to take my tour and my visit just to see how it is before I even think about making a decision."

What is it about the program that has you interested in Oregon?

"The program itself is successful and I heard it was a really good education too, so that's the main thing I'm worried about."

Have you talked with coach Campbell about setting up an official visit to Oregon?

"We were talking about after the season, maybe in like January."

Are you planning on waiting to make a decision, or will you do it whenever it feels right?

"Actually, whenever I just feel right, I'll make a decision, so I don't know when that'll be."

How would you describe yourself as a player?

"I would say I'm an athlete type of guy, I can catch the ball, run the ball...I don't know, I try to make things happen."

Is there a guy at the collegiate or professional level that you try to pattern your game after?

"Oh yeah. Adrian Peterson."

What are you looking for in a program?

"Mainly what I'm looking for is education, once again. I want go somewhere that's the perfect fit for me because I'm going to live there for the next four or five years, so I have be able to live there and like it a lot."

Have you given any thought as to what you might want to study when you get to college?

"Actually, not yet. I actually thought about engineering, but I'm kind of second-guessing that, so right now I don't know."

What are some of the offers that you currently hold from other schools?

"Right now, I have a total of 14 including Oregon, but I would say my top ones would be Oregon State and Washington. I'm still looking at other schools, but those are my top ones right now."

Have you taken official visits to either of those places or anywhere else? Do you have any official visits scheduled in the near future?

"I've taken official visits to Oregon State and Arizona and I don't have any other visits planned right now, but I'm thinking about trying to get one set up because my season (in Fresno) ends in a couple weeks, so I'll be open to pretty much anything."
