Brayden Brown 'Very Interested' in Syracuse

Class of 2017 athlete Brayden Brown recaps visit to Syracuse.

Cumberland (Md.) Fort Hills athlete Brayden Brown has elite speed with a reported 4.34 40-time. That is one of the reasons why Syracuse has expressed interest and invited him to visit on Saturday. 

"It went really good," Brown said. "We got to tour everything, see the gear, talk to the coaches. I think the best part was when you first walk in on the orange carpet, there's 4-5 people there to welcome you with pictures. You can tell how much football means to them."

Brown said he spent the most time with his primary recruiter, tight ends coach Reno Ferri. The two discusses how he would fit into their offense, and Syracuse envisions the potential to play multiple positions within their scheme. 

They also discussed where things stand with an offer since one has not yet been extended. 

"He said it's something they want to do," Brown said. "But they want to get to know me a little better first."

With that in mind, Brown could return later this spring or in the summer to continue building that relationship. 

Brown also added that the facilities were a big standout for him on the visit. He loved what he saw from the Orange in that aspect of their program. 

"They exceeded my expectations," Brown said. "Nowhere I've been has had two indoor facilities and two weight rooms. Both very nice."

The speedy athlete also took in Saturday's basketball game, and said the fans were amazing. He added that the Carrier Dome was pretty cool. 

Overall, the visit impressed Brown. He plans to keep Syracuse involved as long as they continue to recruit him. 

"Very interested," he said. "They will definitely be a top school throughout the entire process."
