One of the top linebackers on the east coast from the Class of 2013 has been following the events at Penn State that have drawn so much national attention in recent days.
Buddy Brown, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound linebacker from Williamstown, Pa., has had an excellent season this year.
He's leading his team into the first round of the playoffs this Friday and both he and his teammates feel good about where they're at. After dropping a game two weeks ago they got back on track last Friday and their confidence is high.
On the season Brown has registered 62 tackles and two sacks while forcing three fumbles.
For now recruiting is on hold.
"I think I'm going to wait until after the season before I take any visits or anything like that," Brown said on Monday evening.
"After the season I definitely want to get out to Wisconsin and then some schools down south like Florida, Florida State and Miami."
One of the schools that has offered Brown is Penn State, and it's reasonable to wonder how recent revelations at the Big Ten school have affected his opinion of the Lions.
"I don't know how true that is," Brown explained. "I know I loved the school when I went up there. Things happened but that's in the past. Bringing up something years later is kind of weird, I think."
Rutgers, UVa and West Virginia are the other schools that have offered Brown.
