Big news for Brown

Big news for Brown

Josh Brown has been hearing from a lot of different schools over the past few months, but the one that offered him last week was not one of those. Get the latest on this Peach State junior here.

"Arizona offered me last Wednesday and I did not really see that coming," Josh Brown told Scout. "I had not talked to them, I had not heard from them, and then I found out that I had an offer from them. It was a big surprise."

The Wildcats are now a school that Brown is looking into. He saw them win their bowl game and he knows they run a spread offense, but that is all he knows at this time.

"They are really new to me. Now that I know they like me and have offered me, I will be learning more about them. I don't know much, but this offer is exciting."

A school closer to home could be next to offer the 5-foot-9, 190 pound athlete out of Snellville (Ga.) Brookwood.

"Georgia Tech has been showing a lot of interest and I visited them a couple of weeks ago. I talked with their coaches and I know they like me a lot.

"They took me around their campus when I visited, they told me they like me as an A-Back in their offense, and they have been showing a lot of interest."

Brown has a lot of interest in the Yellow Jackets too.

He likes their location [close to home], their academics, and their coaches.

Brown is also hearing a lot from Alabama, Clemson, Duke, Florida, Georgia, and Missouri.

He is primarily being recruited to play running back, but he could play cornerback on the next level as well. He ran for 600 yards as a junior and he has an interception that he returned for a touchdown.

Brown plans to attend spring games at Duke and Georgia Tech.

He currently carries a 3.9 GPA and he is waiting for his SAT scores to return.
