Brown Recaps Visit to Colorado

Dec. 9 -- The plan for La Mirada (Calif.) receiver Tony Brown was to take his weekend visit to Colorado and then make a decision sometime this week...

Tony Brown had a big senior season and elevated his stock in to the Scout 300. He's a talented receiver who has good size and hands with the speed to get deep and runs well after the catch.

Brown took early official visits to Nebraska and Texas Tech and was in Colorado this past weekend.

"It was a really good visit, way better than I expected it to be," Brown said. "The best for me was getting to know the players and coaches better and I fit in really well there. They have a great group of guys there and I already knew Shay Fields who was my host. He loves it there and had a big season and they're saying I could have a similar impact.

"I got to spend a lot of time with the coaches and especially Coach Walters, the WR coach. He has a really good reputation as a coach and played in the NFL so I like him a lot. I liked the campus and the city and everything was really nice. Like I said, it really exceeded my expectations and I'm giving them a serious look."

The original plan for Brown was to make his decision later this week but that will now be postponed.

"The trip to Colorado really opened my eyes so I'm going to wait until next week to commit," Brown said. "I want to spend more time talking with my dad about this decision and don't want to rush it. UCLA is coming in this week for a home visit and then my dad and I will sit down and weigh everything out and then I should be ready to make a decision next week. It's harder than I thought and I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing."
