North Carolina, Virginia Tech among schools vying for No. 20 2018 WR Dyami Brown

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Scout 300 2018 wide receiver Dyami Brown is one of the hottest junior prospects in North Carolina and the West Mecklenburg standout spoke with Scout about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Dyami Brown's recruitment continues to pick up steam.

Out of all the schools, North Carolina and Virginia Tech are recruiting him the hardest and he gave a quick thought on each.

North Carolina: “It’s a big school and they’re doing a great job with the program,” said the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Brown. “I like the coaches and overall environment. I’m going back to visit when they play Virginia Tech (Oct. 15). I’m excited to watch the receivers and see them compete.”

“(Wide receivers) coach (Gunter) Brewer is recruiting me and he’s coached a lot of great ones through the years like Dez Bryant.  He’s told me North Carolina will help me successful on and off the field.”

Virginia Tech:  “Growing up, that was my favorite school. So the fact that they’re showing a lot of interest is great and I have family in Virginia. I also camped there during the summer and liked the way they did things. I'm going to the Miami game (Oct. 20). I know it's a big rivalry and I'm looking forward to seeing the offense.

“(Wide receivers) coach (Holmon) Wiggins is recruiting me. He told me I would fit well in their offense and that I could come in and contribute early."


Brown's scholarship list has reached double digits and NC State was the most recent school to pull the trigger.

“They’re really recruiting hard in this area, so it means a lot to get an offer from them and they’ve shown a lot of love. I haven’t visited yet, but plan to go to a game.  I want to see the atmosphere and how they treat people.

“The person I’m in contact with is (tight ends) coach (Eddie) Faulkner.  I like that he’s honest with me and he’s told me they would love to have me.”

Brown plans to narrow his list to five sometime after his junior season and knows two teams who will make the list.

"Virginia Tech and North Carolina will definitely make the cut," he said. "They've been recruiting me for a long time and I have a great relationship with those coaching staffs."
