Brown Adds Big 12 Offer

Durham (N.C.) running back Jordan Brown is showing a favorable start in the recruitment process. The class of 2016 standout holds four BCS offers to his credit, the most recent from West Virginia.

Jordan Brown finds himself in the early stages of his recruitment, yet that hasn't stopped BCS-caliber programs from initiating early contact.

The 5-foot-10, 180 pound, South Durham running back claims offers from Boston College, East Carolina, N.C. State and most recently, West Virginia.

"I was excited about the offer (from WVU)," Brown said. "It kind of came out of nowhere because I didn't know they were looking at me. But I was definitely glad they decided to offer. It also means a lot that they decided to offer me … I'm just a sophomore."

It didn't take an official offer, though, for Brown to become familiar with the WVU program. His teammate, William Cameron, is currently committed to the Mountaineers and the program's "national expose" has showcased them enough.

"I know some about the football program," Brown explained. "I know some of the success players like Tavon Austin and Geno Smith had there."

A benefit the Mountaineers offer is a spread offense attack, one that could highlight his on-field explosiveness.

"I think I would do pretty good in a spread offense," Brown said. "We run a pistol spread at our school and I like how it spreads out the defense. It creates opportunities in the running and passing game for the running back."

As a sophomore, Brown rushed for 750 yards and registered 400 receiving yards with 16 total touchdowns.

Brown claims no favorites and plans to visits a variety of schools this summer, including West Virginia.
