The recruiting process has really begun to heat up for one of the top running backs in New Jersey. Red Bank (N.J.) Red Bank Catholic standout Donald Brown has been on one official visit and has two others set for early December.
"I was at Wisconsin this past week and had a really great time. The players and coaches were really nice and the facilities were amazing," said the 5-foot-10, 195-pound speedster.
Brown will also be visiting Connecticut (Dec. 3) and Iowa on (Dec. 10).
"I'm looking forward to my visits at Uconn and Iowa. I might also set one up with Tennessee as my fourth, but I'm not sure yet."
There is another school that has recently come into the picture with Brown.
"Coach McGovern of Boston College was in to see me last week and he said that he was really impressed with my game tape. He told me that they are very interested. and said he was going to bring the tape back to Boston to show the other coaches, so there is a very good chance they will offer soon. If they come in with an offer over the next week, I would definitely consider taking an official visit up there."
So far this season Brown has led his team to a 5-2 record and a state playoff berth. He has rushed for 1,614 yards and 21 touchdowns on 145 carries.
"Wisconsin, Uconn and Iowa are all recruiting me as a tailback, Tennessee wants me as a defensive back. Boston College likes me as a back and told me that they have a few very good young backs right now, but players get moved to other positions all the time and I like the competition anyway."
