Chicago (Ill.) Morgan Park three star ranked outside linebacker prospect Phillip Brown (6-foot-0, 215 pounds) missed 10 weeks of football this fall for the Mustangs because of an injury, yet Brown returned to the Mustangs starting lineup last week and has drawn more recruiting interest.
“It was really tough to sit on the sideline for that long," Brown said. “But God has a reason for everything. I know that I'm blessed to get back on the field and to have a chance to show people what I can do. I felt pretty good last Friday and I'll be even better this Saturday night."
Brown has also landed his fourth offer this week from Bowling Green State University.
"The coaches from Bowling Green called on Tuesday night and they offered me a scholarship. The coach said that they like my speed as well as my overall aggressiveness on the field. I'm really happy about the offers I already have at this point (Bowling Green, Ball State, Northern Illinois and Akron) and I'll definitely look into Bowling Green. I know that several coaches were hoping to see more senior tape on me this fall, and I hopefully still have two more games left to show them my ability."
Chicago Morgan Park (12-0) will face Cary-Grove (12-0) on Saturday night in the IHSA Class 7A state semifinal round. Morgan Park is the first Chicago Public League team to start the season at 12-0, and the Mustangs have a chance at being the first CPL team to win a state football title.
Brown has official visits set for Ball State on December 3rd and Akron on December 10th.
