Jalen Brown is a 2014 athlete from Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe who has already landed offers from Arizona, Arizona State and Yale and many more could be on the way since he's one of the top players in his class.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete said at the U.S. Army National Combine that Oregon is his early favorite and he'd like to visit there along with Ohio State and Florida before his junior season gets underway.
"I really like Oregon," Brown said. "They're a good passing program and I heard their academics are good. Their campus is really nice and their facilities are really good. Their jerseys caught my eye, too."

Brown, who finished with 37 receptions for 621 yards and 10 touchdowns in his sophomore season, said Arizona and Arizona State intrigue him and that he's going to take a closer look at both programs.
Since the Wildcats and Sun Devils have new coaching staffs it's going to be important to see how things play out over the next couple years. The 2014 standout said both teams want him to play offense.
"I took a quick look at (Arizona) and it's going to be a pretty decent staff from just looking at it," Brown said. "They came to my school and they're going to honor my offer. It just reassures my offer is still there so that's really good.
"(Arizona State) really likes me playing DB over there but they want me to play offense first, too. I don't really know too much about the new coach yet. It's really important for me to like the coach and be able to fit in with their program. That's a big part of it."
Although Oregon has a slight edge early in his recruitment, Brown said he's still open to all programs. USC and Colorado have shown lots more interest and the Phoenix standout is open to listening to every school.
"I'm trying to take my time with it and not worry about it too much," Brown said. "I still have a long way to go. I'm open right now. I'm not set on any schools."
