Brown gets first SEC offer
Offer number three has come in for Argyle, Texas wide receiver Brady Brown and it is from a conference that he has had his eye on from day one. Vanderbilt has extended Brown his first SEC offer and adds to his already diverse list.
"Vanderbilt offered me," Brown said. "It's an SEC school and I've always loved the SEC. I've always kept up with all of them."
Brown already has begun to develop a relationship with wide receivers coach and recruiter Charlie Wilson and he a lot of respect for the program.
"Charlie Fisher is my recruiter," he said. "I've talked to him six or seven times over the past couple of weeks. I called him today and he told me that they were going to offer. I've been to parts of Tennessee and I really like it. They have great academic prestige and I've always kept up with the team and I like them."
Though Vandy is now his only SEC offer, the Commodore staff is not the only group of coaches recruiting him from the conference.
"I went to Auburn last weekend for the Spring Game and that was a great place, I just loved it. They had a ton of people there for the Spring Game and that just shows how much fan support they have. They're redoing most of their buildings and their athletic department."
Another recent offer that Brown has considered is a Big Ten offer from Iowa. While Vanderbilt had been recruiting Brown heavily, the Iowa offer was not expected.
"It was kind of surprising to me because they've just sent letters in the mail and haven't really recruited me seriously," he said. "They've always been really good in the past couple of years. Once I started thinking them I've started to like them."
At 6-foot-5, Brown is a great target with sure hands. He caught 97 balls as a junior failing to pull down only three passes all season out of the 100 thrown his way. He will be putting his skills on display at the TCU Nike Camp on April 26.
