The battle for Brown
St. Louis Hazelwood West four-star athlete Lamark Brown has been at the center of one of the most intense recruiting battles in the nation this spring and summer. Early in the process, the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder gave an oral commitment to Kansas State.
However, he later said that the pledge was a little too early and that he had plans to look around at other schools. He still holds those plans, but at this point he definitely still has a strong lean toward the Wildcats.
"I just came back from the K-State camp and came away impressed," Brown, who could project at either running back, receiver or even on defense, said.
"K-State was the one place I've wanted to go to since I was in my freshman year. After talking to the coaches and spending a lot of time with them at the camp, I feel like I can really do some good there."
Most people believe that Missouri is the chief rival for the Wildcats to land Brown, but two new teams have entered the fray and might have pushed the Tigers down the list some.
"I just got new offers from Minnesota and Arkansas," he said.
When asked what his other top teams other than K-State were, Brown said that Arkansas and Minnesota are now the two teams that he thinks about most when not thinking about the Wildcats.
Still Brown said he's a long way from making an ultimate final decision and he hopes to take several unofficial and official visits before ending the process completely.
"It's been crazy at times," Brown said about the process. "But overall it's been good, and I've enjoyed it. I'm blessed to have all these teams really want me."
