Rutgers Hosts Three-Star QB Brown

Holmdel (N.J.) St. John Vianney quarterback Anthony Brown visited Rutgers Thursday, and broke down the in-state experience with Scout after his return home from campus.

Holmdel (N.J.) St. John Vianney quarterback Anthony Brown talked both academics and football during a Thursday visit to Rutgers with his father.

Neither subject disappointed.

“I like the academics part of it,” Brown said. “I like the fact that after football, their leadership program gives you networking options to have a job. I like that it’s right here at home.”

Brown made the short drive to Rutgers campus alongside his father, who also liked the academic presentation.

“He liked it a lot more than he expected to,” Brown said. “My dad focuses on the academics parts of the school. He lets me handle the football aspect. He really liked it from an academic standpoint, and the talk that he had.”

Receivers coach Anthony Campanile, former star quarterback turned graduate assistant Mike Teel and E.J. Barthel of the recruit staff met with Brown during the visit.

“It’s a really good staff,” Brown said. “Coach Campanile and coach Teel, it was great talking to them and working on the boards. Coach Barthel, I’m used to talking to him. It was nice to see some of them in person.

The Scarlet Knights discussed but did not verbally Brown. The staff will be out to see him throw during the spring evaluation period and summer camp is another possibility.

The 6-foot-1, three-star quarterback hopes to visit Temple for a spring practice with an offer list that includes Syracuse and Northwestern.

Brown hopes to schedule more visits, but has a busy offseson scheduled with camps, including Nike’s April camp in New Jersey.
