Deacons Lead For Florida DB

The state of Florida has produced plenty of outstanding defensive backs over the years and Wake Forest currently leads for one of the Sunshine State's top corners from the Class of 2011.

Harmon Brown, a 5-8, 170-pound corner from Lauderdale Lakes (FL) Boyd H. Anderson, told DeaconSports in an interview late this week that Wake Forest is currently the school to beat, and he feels great about what the Deacs have to offer him.

"I've spoken with coach Mac and we e-mail each other like every day," Brown said. "We talk a lot. That's one of my top schools. Actually Wake Forest is my top school right now. I built a good relationship with them in the spring and now I just want to get up there sometime to talk a little football with coach Mac and see the campus, because I've never seen it.

"When I get up there it will probably be for an official visit sometime."

Brown went on to say that Syracuse is his number two school, followed by Wisconsin, Bowling Green and Marshall, in that order. Each of those schools have offered him a scholarship.

Some other schools from the SEC that have not offered Brown have also caused him to pay attention to their programs. He attended one camp at the University of Alabama, and while he was in the area he embarked on a tour of schools that included Ole Miss, LSU and Florida.

"I just saw all those campuses," he recalled. "Ole Miss really stuck out of those. I had a very good time at Ole Miss. I got to see what goes on there a little bit. I like the campus and it's got a very good environment. I liked Ole Miss a lot."

As you might have gathered given the fact that Brown plans on taking an official visit to Wake Forest, a decision will probably not be coming anytime soon. He told DeaconSports that he hopes to be able to end the recruiting process at some point in the fall but he is unsure as to when exactly he will have an announcement.
