The nation's No. 1 running back, Bryce Brown of Wichita (Kan.) East, has always maintained he was going to take official visits to other schools, despite making an early commitment to the Miami Hurricanes.
And now that he's a three games into his senior season, the 6-foot, 215-pounder has started to sort out what schools will get visits and when he will be making those visits.
According to Brown's mentor, Brian Butler, Brown has four schools in line for visits.
"Bryce is going to visit Missouri, Oregon, Miami and Purdue," Butler said. "I know he's got an official visit set up with Missouri for when they play Colorado. He doesn't have dates lined up for Oregon, Miami and Purdue."
Brown has done everything asked of him in his senior season, which further validates his elevation to the top running back spot after summer evaluations.
So far this season Brown has rushed for 518 yards on 69 carries and is averaging 172 yards a game. Last week against Kapaun Mt. Carmel, Brown raced for 265 yards and four touchdowns. On the season, he's reached the end zone 13 times.
"Our offense has really opened him up to be able to run a little bit more," East coach Brian Byers said. "He's a really special player and has taken advantage of that."
