After initially limiting his list to 15 schools just a month ago, five-star wide receiver Marlon Brown has begun to realize just how difficult the college decision-making process will be.
Brown has two more schools that he is not ready eliminate from his list, one of them is a school that he had previously considered while another is new to the race. Welcome to the Marlon Brown sweepstakes UCLA and welcome back Missouri.
"Missouri, I did a little more research on them and I really like their offense," Brown said after dropping the Tigers from consideration in March. "They have a great offense. UCLA offered a couple of weeks ago. They also have a great basketball program and a great tradition so I'm definitely interested in them."
Brown, who has been factoring basketball into his decision from the beginning, has been told that he would be able to play both basketball and football for the Bruins, an element that played a big role in UCLA's new inclusion on the list.
Currently Brown is busy with a hectic AAU basketball schedule and has no plans to make any college campuses or visits this summer as of yet, except for one.
"I think I'm going to the USC Rising Stars Camp," he said. "I have no more plans yet, just AAU."
Despite his limited opportunities to visit schools, Brown does hope to cut down his list again before the season.
"I am going to try to limit it again this summer," he said. "I'm probably going to cut it down to 10 or 12 schools."
