2013 Jersey LB closing in on more offers

Buddybrown 200 5 12
Rutgers and West Virginia have verbally offered Class of 2013 linebacker Buddy Brown, and the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Garden State prospect will probably be visiting both of those schools this fall.
According to the prospect's father, Shawn, Brown will be making it out to a good number of schools this fall.
He has that luxury because all of Williamstown's games fall on Friday nights, meaning his Saturdays and Sundays are free for travel.
"We're going to try to make it out to South Carolina and we want to make it to Penn State and Rutgers. Actually, we're going to make it to a lot of them. We'll definitely get down to Tennessee and I know he wants to get to Michigan," his father explained.
"The schools recruiting him the hardest would be Rutgers, Penn State, West Virginia and South Carolina. Tennessee's coming on strong. Even Stanford has been showing some interest."
Is location something that would make it difficult for schools like Stanford to reel him in?
"Actually he doesn't mind that," his father continued. "He really likes Rutgers because it's the home state school but he doesn't mind traveling or getting away from home."
In addition to the two schools that have offered, Brown's father believes his son may be close to more verbal scholarships offers.
"Some haven't offered because he was a sophomore but we've got the feeling that South Carolina may be one (that will offer)," he said.
"Penn State, Boston College, Michigan and UConn are some others. Really it's those that he's talked to.
"September 1 is a big day so we'll see who's really interested then."
