The South Florida Bulls have become the second team this month to offer solid three-star athlete Noah Brown, as USF offered yesterday a week after Brown received an offer from the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Sparta, New Jersey prospect is wide open in his recruitment thus far, and he is an ATH projected to play at running back in college.
Brown has also received offers from the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Michigan State Spartans, Wisconsin Badgers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Boston College Eagles, Virginia Tech Hokies, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, and Temple Owls in his recruitment. Penn State, Michigan, West Virginia, Maryland, and Notre Dame are five other programs of note with interest. Brown is squarely on the Big Ten radar, so watch for Michigan and lead recruiter Curt Mallory closely in Brown’s recruitment (always watch what Mallory does, period). The Mountaineers also seem to be showing significant interest in Brown.
The 6’2″, 195 pound from Pope John XXIII is ranked by the 247Composite as the 411th best player in the country, and he is one of the top 40 athletes in the country and one of the top ten recruits in the state of New Jersey. Last month, he visited the in-state Scarlet Knights, and Brown has an unofficial trip to the Virginia Tech Hokies set up in ten days.
Last season, the Michigan State target and reported Big Ten lean filled up the stat sheet. He caught 41 passes for 630 yards and six touchdowns, carried the ball for 847 yards and 14 more touchdowns, and his four kick-off return touchdowns showcased his electrifying speed and explosiveness to carry his touchdown total as a junior to 24 TDs.
USF seems to be heavily targeting athletes in the 2014 class, as two of their four commits are ATHs. Both Jarvis Stewart and Jimmy Bayes are in-state recruits (Largo and Immokalee respectively, so Stewart is right in the Tampa Bay area) of the same caliber as the New Jersey athlete the Bulls just offered.
