The offers keep coming for new Rivals250 athlete Noah Brown. The Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII stand out has now passed the 20-offer mark, picking up two new BCS offers over the past two weeks.
"My most recent offer was South Carolina on Friday," said the 6-foot-2, 211-pound Brown. "Coach Mangus came to my school a few weeks ago and he told my coach they really liked me and that he wanted to get back to show the staff my film. My coach told me to call Coach Mangus on Friday and they offered. I don't really know too much about them. I need to do some more research on them."
Another SEC school offered Brown a few days before the Gamecocks.
"I also don't know a ton about Missouri," he said. "I know they've had some pretty good wide receivers, Jeremy Maclin being their most notable one. I actually hadn't really been in contact with them before they came to my school."
Brown is still trying to figure out which schools he will visit.
"I have no definite visits coming up," Brown said. "I'll at Boston College on June 18 for a team camp and I'll take some visits in July but I don't have anything set in stone yet.
"I'll probably get out to Virginia Tech, Ohio State, Rutgers, South Carolina and I'll try to get down to Florida and some other schools in the South," he said. "If I can get out to Ohio State I'll probably see some other Midwest schools also."
Throughout the process Brown has done a pretty good job of not tipping his hand but did mention three coaches he has taken a liking to.
"I've been pretty impressed with all the schools," said Brown. "I have a good relationship with Coach Brown from Virginia Tech, Coach Cohen from Rutgers and Coach Warinner from Ohio State. We talk pretty often.
"I don't think I've really seen enough schools to really count anybody out because I feel I need to really see the school to know if I'll fit in there," he said. "Until I take enough visits to where I'm comfortable, I'm not going to narrow anything down."
Brown has taken the recruiting process pretty slowly but things could pick up soon.
"I'm definitely going to narrow things down at the beginning of the summer and then probably again before the season," Brown said. "I'll either make my decision right before the season or early in the season."
Brown won the offensive skill MVP at the Newark RCS.
