Orlando (Fla.) Boone cornerback Jeremy Brown currently has two programs tied at the top in the race for his services. He also has scheduled five official visits to college campuses for the fall.
"I'd say Florida and Notre Dame are tied at the top right now," Brown said. "But the only reason I say that is because I know a lot about those schools already. I've been over to Florida many times and with Notre Dame, I've been keeping in touch with (defensive coordinator) Corwin Brown.
"I've developed a very good relationship with him."
The 5-foot-10, 183-pounder plans to make an official visit South Bend on the weekend of Oct. 19, when the Irish play host to Southern California. He has
Auburn will get an official visit from Brown during the weekend of Aug. 30, the opening week of the season. The Tigers play host to Kansas State that Saturday night in a game scheduled to be televised by ESPN.

On the weekend of Sept. 21, Brown will head up to Madison, Wisc., for an official visit to the University of Wisconsin. The Badgers play host to Iowa that Saturday.
LSU gets an official visit on the weekend of Oct. 5. The Tigers play host to the Gators that Saturday.
"I wouldn't say that those are the final six (the five official visits and Florida)," Brown said. "Those are just the schools that I am interested in going to and finding out more about. I want to get a closer look at them."
Tennessee, Clemson, Miami (Fla.), South Carolina and others have offered Brown.
This summer, Brown could make a few unofficial visits.
"I don't think I am going to any camps," he said. "But I may go out and visit some schools. I may go meet with the coaches, tour the campus, stuff like that."
Brown's decision, which originally was supposed to come in the middle of the football season, could linger.
"For a while, I wanted to make it early," he said. "I was thinking about making it after the Notre Dame-USC game. But now, I think I will just let it ride and see what happens."
The 5-foot-10, 163-pounder is a four-star rated prospect and the No. 17 cornerback prospect nationally according to Rivals.com.
