Brooklyn (N.Y.) ASA College offensive tackle Vincent Brown is starting to see his popularity soar with college coaches and he's set to take his first two official visits of the recruiting process.
The 6-foot-6, 308-pound tackle from the New York junior college recently picked up offers from Western Kentucky and Southern Miss. He didn't waste any time in setting up trips to each school.
"I'm going to Western Kentucky tomorrow," Brown said on Thursday evening. "They offered me before Thanksgiving.

"I guess my coaches just started trying to get me out there. They put my film on YouTube. When the Western Kentucky coaches called me they told me they liked what they had seen. This will be my first taste of what they're all about but I've actually seen them on T.V. a couple of times."
Brown will be taking another official visit next weekend.
"I'm going to Southern Miss on December 10," he said. "They offered me about a week after (Western Kentucky). I know a few things about them. They're in Conference USA which is the same conference that Central Florida, Tulsa and Memphis are in.
"They also produced Brett Favre. I like that receiver they have, DeAndre Brown."
Brown said he will evaluate each school after he visits but he is hoping his stock continues to rise with coaches. He would like other schools to get involved between now and Signing Day but he said that Western Kentucky and Southern Miss are the only two in the picture for now.
