Jayon Brown was sitting in math class when he learned he landed his first offer.
The Long Beach (Calif.) Poly outside linebacker quickly switched gears from taking copious notes to thinking about Colorado and possibly playing for the Buffaloes for years to come.
"The coach added me on Facebook and then hit me up and asked me my height and weight and what I want to play in college," Brown said. "I told him I'd play linebacker or safety it doesn't matter, I'll play wherever they need me.

"He said, 'Good, because we have an opening at the rover position.' A couple weeks went by, I went to the NIKE camp and did well there so the Monday after that I'm in math class taking notes and our academic coach text messaged me and told me Colorado offered me.
"That was my first offer and I'm feeling good. I have to work hard to keep it."
Colorado has jumped on board for Brown, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound rangy prospect who looked good this past weekend at the Passing Down SoCal 7on7 Regional at Fullerton College.
The Long Beach Poly standout definitely has interest in the Buffaloes but it's still early in his recruitment so for now Brown is just taking his time.
"I'm waiting," Brown said. "I checked out the depth chart and it's looking good for me but I'm just going to wait."
Washington State stopped by his school Friday and Brown said Utah has also been showing interest. With more Pac-12 schools getting involved Brown said he wants to see what else happens in recruiting before making his decision.
