He may be small, but he's a big time talent. It's been said that Miami (Fla.) Northwestern wide receiver Tim Brown could be a five star if only he were six inches taller. Nonetheless Brown is a big time talent, who has picked up some impressive offers already.
"I have offers from Rutgers, Bowling Green, Michigan State, Louisville, Western Michigan and Miami-Ohio," Brown said. "Miami is really recruiting me really hard too, but they have not offered yet. I also hear from Auburn, Florida and South Florida."
The 5-foot-7, 146-pound Brown attended the Miami NIKE camp where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds, ran the shuttle in 4.25 seconds and posted a 32-inch vertical jump.

"My top school schools right now are Louisville, Rutgers, Miami, Auburn, South Florida, Florida, Michigan State and Miami-Ohio," Brown said. "Most schools are talking about me possibly playing wide receiver and cornerback. That would be cool with me because I like playing them both."
As a junior Brown caught 39 passes for 699 yards and 12 touchdowns and helped to lead his team deep into the playoffs.
"Playing time is a big thing for me," Brown said. "I think that if I can go in and learn the system somewhere I could be ready to play early. I know I'll never be the busiest guy, but there aren't many people who are as quick as I am."
Brown has attended camp at South Florida and Rutgers twice, once at Edison High School and the second time he headed up to New Jersey to check out the Knights.
"It was a real good trip," Brown said. "I got to see their facilities and I talked to all of the coaches up there. They offered me on the last day of their camp and they told me that they wanted to sign a bunch of Florida kids this year."
