The big issue surrounding Lakewood (Calif.) linebacker Luther Brown recently hasn't been so much what college he'll attend but where he'll play in high school. Rumors have been swirling that Brown will transfer to Mississippi where his mother lives.
"No, he'll be back here in time for fall practice," Lakewood head coach Mike Christensen said. "He has been back there (MS) visiting his mother and that's probably where all the speculation came from. He played with us during the spring passing league and looked great and he'll be back with us for the season as well. He is going to have a special season, he's an incredible player."
Brown, 6-1, 215 pounds is one of the nation's top five linebacker prospects and an incredible talent. He earned all-state first team and Student Sports Junior All-American honors a year ago after totaling 76 tackles, three sacks and two picks.
On the recruiting front, Brown hasn't set up any of his visits yet but a couple of schools are in a good position.
"Luther is very high on USC but I don't know if he'll visit there because it's so close," Christensen said, "Miami and Oklahoma are high on his list and have done a nice job recruiting him. I think he'll visit both. There are a lot of schools he likes though, Notre Dame, LSU, Tennessee, Arizona, a lot of others. I don't think he'll be ready to make a decision any time soon that's for sure."
