While only entering his junior year this fall, running back Corey Brown is a name to remember. He will be one of the main players in the 2010 recruiting class if he continues to run through defenses at the rate he has.
As a sophomore, Brown rushed for over 1000 yards and also had over 200 receiving yards with 14 touchdowns.
Currently, Brown has offers from Illinois, Penn State, Rutgers and Pittsburgh. With time, more offers will be rolling in as he expects West Virginia, Louisville and UCLA among others to be sending offers soon.
The 5-foot-11 170 pound back said out of all the schools showing interest, the Knights are recruiting him the hardest. Brown has made a few visits there, with the most recent visit being the spring game, and likes what he's seen so far.
Like many recruits that have visited the school, he's impressed with Head Coach Greg Schiano.
"I like him a lot," Brown said of the Knights head man. "He's a really good coach and he's dedicated."
One thing in Rutgers favor is that the guy that will be handing Brown the football next year, Tom Savage, verbally committed to the program in the spring. He said Savage has talked to him about the team numerous teams and is trying to push him towards moving to Piscataway.
"He wants me to go to [Rutgers] and has been trying to get me to go," Brown said.
When asked when he plans on committing, Brown said whenever he finds the right place. In what will factor into that decision, he said early playing time, academics and the graduation rate of athletes.
