"It was a long journey and I felt like I really earned this one," Brown said. "Everything that USC does is competition and that is my life."
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete showed his competitiveness at the USC Skills Camp, when he switched from playing tailback to defensive back, and was the top performer on the defensive side of the ball.
"It started at the Skills Camp where I did pretty good," Brown said. "BC told me to come back to the Rising Stars Camp and I came with the same mindset. I just went out there and performed really well."
At the Rising Stars Camp, Brown shined against some of the top wide receivers in the country and earned a scholarship offer from Pete Carroll with his play and work ethic.
"USC recruits the best and for me to get offered from them is an honor, so I just took it and ran with it," Brown said.
After taking a few weeks to think things over with his family, Brown decided the USC offer was just too good to pass up and let the coaches know on Thursday that he wanted to be a Trojan.
"I emailed Brennan (Carroll) and told him that I had made up my mind. He told me to call him, so I did and told him that I was in.
"He asked me if I wanted to take official visits, and I told him that I already made up my mind. I want to be a Trojan because that is where I fit in."
The Kaiser standout is being recruited as an athlete but will most likely end up playing cornerback for the Trojans.
"They offered me as an athlete and also talked about kick and punt returns. I can play running back and can play defensive back too," he said. "I am physical corner and these days teams really need physical corners."
Brown plans to graduate high school early and enroll at USC in January.
Anthony Brown goes up high to make the play.
