Zachary (La.) Northeast wide receiver Aaron Brown was one of the fastest rising prospects in the Pelican State and was having a huge senior season before suffering a season ending knee injury.
“I had a partial ACL tear,” Brown said. “Everybody that has offered told me that they would stand by their offer and said they will stick with me. LSU was recruiting me really hard and I think they may have been about to offer, but they have just stopped recruiting me pretty much since I got hurt.”
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Brown runs the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, has a 270-pound bench press and 325-pound squat.
“I already have an official visit set up with South Carolina for January 14,” Brown said. “I have already talked to Auburn and Southern Miss about taking a visit in January, but I don’t have a date set. This past weekend I went to the LSU-Ole Miss game, but like I said LSU isn’t really recruiting me much anymore.”
As a junior he caught 37 passes for seven touchdowns. So far this year he has 17 catches for 225 yards and four touchdowns. With Holtz stepping down at South Carolina, does that change anything with Gamecocks?
“No not much has really changed with them,” Brown said. “They are still one of my favorites. I always used to like watching Steve Spurrier offenses so I think I would fit in fine there.”
