Bruins Watching Erik Brown

Fontana (Calif.) Summit receiver Erik Brown (6-1, 170), is one of the best receivers in the Inland Empire.

And despite Summit being a pretty run-oriented offense, Brown is still attracting plenty of interest as a receiver.

"Most schools like me as a receiver, and that's what I definitely want to play in college," said Brown. "I did a lot of 7on7 last spring and last summer to work as a receiver and will be doing more this spring and this summer."

Brown doesn't have any offers yet, but a handful of schools are interested.

"I'm getting a lot of interest from UCLA, I've heard from them a lot, and a lot of interest from USC and Oregon State," said Brown. "I'm in contact with my friend Donte Deayon at Boise State and he said they're looking at me and BYU is looking at me also with my friend Jamaal Williams there."

Oregon State signed two of his teammates last week, Charles Okonkwo and Justin Strong, and he's equally interested in the Beavers.

"Oregon State definitely could be the first school to offer me and I have a lot of interest in them," said Brown.

Brown said that Oregon, though, has been his favorite school.

"I grew up liking Oregon a lot and I like B.J. Kelley a lot as a player," said Brown.

Brown has a connection to Oregon, his cousin is Devon Blackmon, a former Duck receiver who left Eugene, but that hasn't swayed him a bit.

"Oh I definitely do still like Oregon a lot even with Devon going another way," said Brown. "I most definitely still like them."

Brown plans to camp at Oregon this summer, as well as USC and UCLA, in addition to the 7on7 circuit with the Frat Boyz.

Last fall, Brown had 21 catches for 305 yards and four touchdowns.

Academically, Brown has a 3.0 and will take the SAT in April.

Brandon is in his ninth year with and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
