Miami commitment still pursued

MIAMI, Fla. - Miami (Fla.) Norland linebacker Keith Brown made his way to the University of Miami on Sunday to participate in the Nike Football Training Camp. He left with MVP honors as the top linebacker at the event.
"It was a fun experience coming out here and competing against people," Brown said. "It was a good experience and I think I showed that I am one of the top linebackers in the state right now."
The physically imposing linebacker said he enjoyed getting to work on the practice fields that he intends to call home during his collegiate career.
"It felt good," Brown said. "It felt like a college practice at my future home. I got used to the field. I got a chance to run around and see the school, seeing the 'U' everywhere."
Brown committed to Miami back in September and hasn't had any second thoughts about his decision.
"I am firm as can be," Brown said. "It is close to home. They are number one in sports medicine which is what I want to major in. I know a couple of people out here that I played high school ball with. It is just a perfect fit."
Despite being a firm commitment, numerous other schools continue to work on the South Florida prospect in hopes of luring him away from Al Golden and company.
"LSU, Louisville, North Carolina, Florida, and Florida State are the top schools still talking to me a lot and trying to change my mind," Brown said.
At this point, Brown plans to head out-of-state to check out a few of the interested schools.
"I am trying to make it to LSU's spring game and maybe Louisville's," Brown said. "I am also planning to camp at Miami this summer."
One of those out-of-state schools is also very likely to land an official visit.
"I will probably take an official to LSU during the season," Brown said. "I just want to go visit it. It is the environment around it. I don't really know a lot about it so that is why I want to get up there for a visit."
