Anaheim (Calif.) four-star wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown has paved himself throughout the recruiting process, but with college coaches beginning to knock on his front door quite literally, his future is now.
College coaches from Notre Dame, Utah and Arizona State all made in
home visits with St. Brown last week.
“For Notre Dame, Coach (Bob) Elliot and the offensive coordinator (Mike
Denbrock) came, for Utah it was Coach Stubbs (Taylor Stubblefield) and
for Arizona State the receiver coach (DelVaughn Alexander) came in.”
USC also made a visit to see St. Brown, but that happened at Servite
High School Thursday.
“Coach Tee Martin came down and he just talked about what USC is doing
right now as a program,” said St. Brown. “He talked about the
recruiting process and what they’re building. He talked about how he
sees me as a player. He was just checking in and seeing how I was
Last week, USC had Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany four-star wide out
Desean Holmes de-commit. How USC recruiting at the receiver plays out
going forward remains a topic St. Brown will follow closely over the
“I think they’re looking forward to getting a recruiting class that
will help them win a national championship in the next few years,” said
St. Brown. “That’s what their goal is.
“Every school has a depth chart, and that’s something I’m looking into
right now. I know the receivers USC has, but I also have to look at the
receivers they have committed coming in.”
St. brown has been to a handful of USC games over the past two seasons,
so he has seen firsthand the transformation of the Trojans offense
since Steve Sarkisian took over as head coach.
“They’re throwing the ball more and spreading the ball around more
now,” said St. Brown. “That’s what I like to see as a receiver. I want
to see that in any team.
“I like the pro-style offense and how they throw the ball around a lot.
I like those pro-style concept because I think that helps me grow as a
receiver. I’m definitely looking for a program that will get me ready
for the next level.”
St. Brown has already officially visited Notre Dame and Utah. With
those schools having already made in-home visits, they are two of
several schools still actively involved in St. Brown’s recruitment.
And at this point, the schools actively recruiting him and still under
“I’ll probably narrow things down after these next in-home visits I
have or a little bit after that,” said St. Brown. “I haven’t thought
about the number of schools I’ll limit it to.
“I have Stanford coming in next week and then some schools coming back
in. I’ve been talking with UCLA a little too, so we’ll see if they’ll
get an in-home visit.”
St. Brown’s last unofficial visit came during the USC-Notre Dame game.
While one game won’t heavily impact his decision on a college, the
Trojans' 49-14 victory didn’t go completely ignored either.
“It didn’t have that much of an impact, but it was good to see them
match up against each other,” said St. Brown. “I thought it would have
been a much closer game, but anything can happen in football.”
St. Brown plans on returning to USC for an official visit in January.
“I’m 90-percent sure I’ll take that visit,” said St. Brown. “Tee Martin
and I talked about it. He said they’d like to bring me in when they
have a lot of other recruits visiting, so it will be sometime in
“SC has a great program, and they’re right in my backyard. They throw
the ball a lot and it’s a good school. That’s why I want to take that
Having visited USC multiple times for recruiting events and games, St.
Brown looks forward to seeing the Trojans football program on a normal
day away from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
“I just want to see how the players interact and spend their time,”
said St. Brown. “I want to see a regular day at SC.”
