UW Commit Could Visit UCLA

Wide receiver Erik Brown of Fontana (Calif.) Summit committed to Washington in July, but maintained that he would still take official visits to other schools. With football season quickly approaching, Brown has much of his fall schedule in place.

"I'm going to take my official visit to Notre Dame for the USC game," Brown said. "I'm headed to Nebraska on Nov. 19, and then I'll head to Oregon State sometime and Washington. I'm not sure yet where I'm going to take my fifth official visit. I'm still figuring that one out. It could be to UCLA."

Brown plans to visit Notre Dame the weekend of Oct. 18, when the Irish will also play host to a number of elite California prospects - Tyler Luatua, Michiah Quick, Juju Smith, and possibly Adoree Jackson.

"Michiah (Quick) is my boy," Brown said. "We talk sometimes about it. what it would be like to play together in college. He's headed out to Notre Dame the same weekend I am. Adoree might be going as well."

Brown committed to Washington partly because of distance, an aspect the Irish share with the Huskies.

"The biggest thing about Washington is that it's something different," Brown said. "It's getting me out of my comfort zone. College is about growing up and taking advantage of every opportunity. I want to go somewhere that's unfamiliar. I've been around USC and UCLA my entire life. So, the fact that Washington, or Notre Dame, is really far is actually a good thing."

Brown, even though committed to Washington, sounds like the door is still ajar a bit.

"I'll know after my visits where I'm going," Brown said. "I want somewhere I can see myself for the next four or five years. The atmosphere and environment will be important."

Brown is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 32 wide receiver in the 2014 class.
