UCLA has been considered the frontrunner for Erik Brown but the Fontana (Calif.) Summit wide receiver is seriously considering other options and Washington tops that list.
The 6-foot-2, 170-pound prospect who was the top receiver at the Rivals Camp Series in Los Angeles said he's highly interested in the Huskies and he's planning to visit there this weekend.
"Washington is making a huge push," Brown said. "I like what they're doing up there and I'd love to be a part of it.

"I'm going up to Washington this weekend. (Offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach) Eric Kiesau is a great person. I'd love to learn from him. Coach (Steve Sarkisian) is doing big things. Coach (Peter) Sirmon is a great guy also. I just like what they're doing with their program and their receivers. I think I could fit in."
That's not to say UCLA has fallen off for Brown, rated as the No. 16 wide receiver and the No. 111 prospect in the 2014 class by Rivals.com.
The Fontana Summit star has not talked with the UCLA coaches in a while but the Bruins are still very high on his list even if others are pushing as well.
"UCLA has not fallen off or anything," Brown said. "They're still up there. I actually haven't spoken to the coaches in a while. I need to call coach (Eric) Yarber to see what's going on. Nothing has changed with UCLA."
Brown, rated as the eighth-best prospect in the California state rankings, said he likes Notre Dame because the coaches want to use him as a deep threat, Nebraska stands out and so does USC, where he's camping on Tuesday.
The Trojans have not offered yet but wide receivers coach Tee Martin continues to be heavily involved and Brown is hoping an offer comes after camp.
"I'll be there (Tuesday)," Brown said. "An offer should come by (Tuesday). I really hope it does."
