Duncanville, Texas, three-star athlete Pierre Brown was a busy man this evening. Not only did he have one Big 12 head coach in his living room, he had two leaders from the power conference. So what two coaches were there and how close is he to making a decision.
“It’s been a fun night,” Brown, who is 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, said. “I first met with coach (Dennis) Franchione from Texas A&M. He was so neat to talk to. He was talking to me about how they think I would be able to fit in there at A&M and that they could use an athlete like me to come in and play a significant role early for them.
“It was a very good visit.”
Brown said that was then followed up with an in-home visit from Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops. Brown said heading into the in-home visits today that Oklahoma was his leader and there was some thought that he might commit to Stoops when he came in tonight.
But that didn’t happen, he said.
“Coach Stoops just solidified a lot of the same things that I was thinking about Oklahoma all along,” Brown said. “They are looking at me at corner and wide receiver. I don’t know where I would want to play. I would just trust whatever coaching staff, and that they know best where I should play. They kept calling me the best pure athlete that they’re recruiting on their board, and that was very flattering.
“I know that Oklahoma is recruiting some of the best players in the nation and to be put at that level makes me excited.”
Brown said his next step is to take an official visit to Kansas State this upcoming weekend. He said he’s excited about visiting with the Big 12 champions.
“I know they are a great team, and they’re recruiting me for a number of different positions, and have even talked to me about playing a little quarterback like I have in high school,” he said. “I’m open to about anything, and it’s going to be fun to check them out.”
Brown, however, did say that Oklahoma remains his top team and that it’s unlikely that he’s going to take his final scheduled official visit to LSU on January 16.
However, this race looks like one that's not over quite yet - especially after tonight.
