Brown will take one more unofficial before season

The kid is a machine. Overused terminology? Yes, but there's little way to describe Donald Brown better as he can kill you on either side of the ball

Donald Brown is getting the kind of attention you might expect as well - having been offered and being looked at by some of the best teams in the country. Brown is also on his way to sealing the deal on his official visits as well. He talked about the teams that will likely be seeing him when that time comes around.

I remember seeing this young man at the Nebraska camp this Summer. An obvious physical specimen standing in at 5-foot-11 and weighing around 190 pounds. Add to that the 4.40 40-yard dash he ran and the 32 ½-inch vertical jump, this kid's got the template for success.

That is success building off of the success Donald already had last year, rushing the ball for 1,115 yards - scoring 15 times and on defense, picking the ball off twice, recording 53 tackles and knocking down a whopping 14 passes in the secondary.

That versatility leads Brown to offers in writing for either side of the ball - running back and cornerback his favored positions. Brown does look at the running back position as his strongest, though he did say that the position he plays will not dictate where he goes as he remarked, "I just want to play."

Donald has one more unofficial that he's going to take before his season begins, that one being to Iowa on the Aug. 8. The Hawkeyes are probable contenders for one of his official visits as you might guess along with Tennessee, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Virginia.

Brown is not sure just when he's taking his official visits, but did say that he would take them all before coming up with a school.

As to any favorites, Brown was non-committal, stating that until he actually gets to see a place in person fully, he's not going to know enough about that place to know whether it is the place for him.
