"I like it up at Pittsburgh . I like the atmosphere and I like the coaches. I like how the campus is. It's kinda a downtown type of campus.

Pitt will be heading from the Big East to the ACC in the years ahead. Typically BCS conference schools win these recruiting battles and Brown does claim an offer from the Panthers. But he reiterated that he's torn between the two schools, largely because of the draw of playing close to home.
