One of the biggest mysteries of this recruiting season was what took so long for three-star defensive tackle Justin Brown (6-2, 256, 4.8) from Compton, Calif., to start garnering offers, but now the time has come as he picked up two good ones on Monday and there could be more in the near future as things are really beginning to heat up for him.
"Justin just received two offers today (Monday January 5th)," Compton head coach Calvin Bryant said. "Colorado and New Mexico have put offers on the table."
"Hawai'i also came by today and told me they are interested in offering Justin, but they wanted to make sure that Justin had sincere interest in them before they would offer him," Bryant said. "Justin told me is definitely interested in Hawai'i."
"Colorado will be at the school on Tuesday (January 6th)," Bryant said. "Coach Romeo Bandison wants to talk to Justin confirm the offer and set up a visit."
Brown hasn't set any visits as of yet but it appears, he will have a very busy January.
"Justin will be able to have midweek trips because his grades are good," Bryant said. "The calls are coming in."
"I told Justin to be patient and now everything is coming full circle," Bryant said. "This is not the end of schools that are pursuing him."
Brown earned first-team all-league honors after racking up 69 tackles, four sacks, one fumble recovery and one interception that he returned 55 yards for a touchdown.
Brown was selected to the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's No. 45 prospect at any position.
