Despite missing a majority of his sophomore season because of an injury, 2014 athlete Noah Brown of Sparta (N.J.) Pope John has still seen his recruiting process start off successfully. Brown added his third offer yesterday and is attending another summer camp later this week in search of a fourth.
"I was hurt my sophomore year," said Brown, who is 6-foot-2 and 195-pounds. "I played the last two games. I had a big game in my first game back with over 100 yards receiving and a touchdown against East Orange, and then I had a touchdown against Red Bank."
Brown lined up at wide receiver and safety during his limited time last fall and will do the same during his junior season.
When it comes to his recruiting, Brown recently picked up his first two offers from Boston College and Temple, and he added his third from Rutgers yesterday. His first offer came from Boston College last week after attending a camp in Chestnut Hill.
"It was a great camp," said Brown. "It gave me an early taste of what it's like to be a D1 athlete. They had really nice facilities and I liked it a lot."
Brown will also attend a summer camp at Syracuse on June 28th.
"At the camps I want to show my skills and ability, and to try and show that I am worthy of a D1 scholarship," said Brown. "I'll let my hard work take it from there."
During these college visits Brown is looking for a few specific things.
"I'm looking for a good school with a good football history and tradition, and a diverse surrounding," said Brown.
After missing a majority of his sophomore season, Brown has also been busy preparing himself for this fall.
"It's going really well," said Brown. "I feel real good going into the season. We work hard every day and I think we will do a lot better this year."
