"If I had to pick a top school, I would say Pitt. I watched Coach Wannstedt down here in Florida when he coached the Miami Dolphins. I always liked him when he was there. He likes to run the ball and he seems like a cool person. He has professional experience and he knows what it takes to get to the next level."
Brown rushed for 650 yards on 83 carries as a junior. He has been a two-year starter at running back. Zacchaeus is capable of running a 4.5 forty-yard dash and squatting 400 pounds.
When asked to describe his running style, he stated, "I'm a powerful north-south runner that has break away speed. I surprise people with my vision."
Brown is well aware that a sizeable percentage of the Panthers' roster is comprised of players from the state of Florida. He happens to know one player that recently signed a letter of intent with the Panthers.
"I know Tamarcus Porter pretty well. TJ just signed a letter with the Panthers. He's had a lot of great things to say about Pitt. We grew up together and it would be great to play with him."
"Hopefully I can visit Pitt in the future. I'm leaning to them but I'll look at some other schools as well. Academics and playing time are the key things I'll be looking for in a school."
