Zachary (La.) Northeast three-star receiver Aaron Brown is in full rehab mode after a slight MCL strain in his knee that has him on the shelf for the rest of the season. The good news is that it’s not stopped the coaches from calling, wanting to make in-home visits and him from setting up official visits.
“I still have the South Carolina visit set,” he said. “I’ve not talked to the new coach (Steve Spurrier), but I’m talking to the coach that was recruiting me. They want me to still come out on January 14. I also talked to Auburn last Thursday about coming out there on January 21.”
As far as in-home visits, LSU assistant Jimbo Fisher visited with Brown and teammate Trindon Holiday earlier today. Brown said others are scheduled to come by, he’s not sure when or who at this point.
"Coach Fisher said he was really interested in both Trindon and I," he said. "He told me to keep working hard at getting better and they might have some room for me. I think he's really interested in Trindon."
Brown said he’s also hoping to take official visits to Southern Miss and Oklahoma State. In the past, he listed Louisville, Michigan, Ohio State as teams showing him heavy interest.
Brown said he plans to be back for track season at 100 percent. He’s about 70-75 percent at this point, but he should be healthy in time to improve on his best 200-meter time of 21.8 seconds. His goal is to finish in the top three along with Holiday, who is one of the fastest sprinters in the state.
