Shawnee Mission (Kan.) North quarterback Mack Brown has received his first scholarship offer of the year.
“I just got back from working out,” the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Brown said. “In the mail was a scholarship offer from Colorado coach Gary Barnett. He had told me they could offer me as a quarterback or an athlete when I was out there for camp, but this offer was as a quarterback. They are the top school on my list at this point.”
While the offer from the Buffaloes is the first to be officially extended, Brown believes there are a couple more that could come by the end of the summer.
“I think Kansas State and North Carolina State are both close to offering me later on this summer,” he said. “Missouri and Kansas have both told me they want to see some of my senior film before they go ahead and offer. All of the schools are recruiting me as a quarterback.”
Brown has been busy with several football camps this summer already and a few more coming up next month. He has already attended camps at Colorado, Colorado State, Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri. He will be going to camps at Arkansas, North Carolina State and Tulsa in July.
Brown, a pro-style quarterback, is looking for an offense that puts the ball in the air as he chooses a college.
“I hope to find a school that throws the ball a lot,” he said. “I would like to find one that is consistent with that type of philosophy.”
As a junior, Brown threw for 2,101 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also rushed for 168 yards and two scores.
