For the most part, a player who receives a scholarship offer before his senior year (an early offer) is considered a value player by those programs that extended that scholarship offer. Due to the limited number of football players from New York City who recieve football scholarships, this is an achievement. For Kevin Brown from Canarsie High School in Brooklyn, he has held a Rutgers offer for almost a year - first and only written offer. Since that time, Brown has obtained verbal offers from Syracuse and Pittsburgh.
Brown has been working hard to prepare for his senior season. Therefore, he has only attended one camp - Pittsburgh. The campus and the facilities caught his attention. He enjoyed his stay. However, Brown is looking to obtain the attention (offers) from other schools. His desire has started to take form as Virginia, Boston College, Duke, Temple, and Maryland have begun "turn up the heat". These schools along with Rutgers have increase the amount of correspondance sent to the home of Brown. Obviously, Brown welcomes the attention as a validation of his hard work. Although Rutgers is still his only written offer, he feels that this will quickly change as the season gets underway.
For now, Brown intends on continuing his hard work and is not interested in hurrying the process. As a result, a decision will not come until after the football season. SOR will be there to report his decision.
