Ohio State Football Recruiting: Noah Brown names top eight

2014 four-star athlete Noah Brown recently named his top eight, and schools from all over the country were represented in there. The Ohio State Buckeyes, USC Trojans, Michigan State Spartans, South Carolina Gameockcs, Virginia Tech Hokies, in-state Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Vanderbilt Commodores, and North Carolina Tar Heels all made the top eight cut for Brown. He is easily one of the top ten recruits in the state of New Jersey, and the Pope John XXII running back is predicted by JC Shurburtt to commit to Virginia Tech.

The schools that did not make the top eight for Brown are the Penn State Nittany Lions, Missouri ‘Tigers, Boston College Eagles, Pittsburgh Panthers, West Virginia Mountaineers, Wisconsin Badgers, Virginia Cavaliers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, South Florida Bulls, Syracuse Orange, and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Brown has received a plethora of major offers, so it must have been difficult for him to dwindle his list down to eight schools. Nebraska was a surprising cut, while a school like Vanderbilt wasn’t initially expected to make it into a top eight. But both schools recently offered this month (South Carolina offered on the last day of May, by the way), so those schools were able to get into Brown’s top eight and could land the four-star prospect.

It’s been a busy past couple of months for Brown, who recently earned his fourth star and is ranked by the 247Composite as the 305th-best recruit in the nation overall and the 31st-best athlete in the country. Last season, Brown ran for 837 yards and 14 touchdowns on just 98 attempts to go with 41 receptions for 620 yards and six touchdowns. He also had four kick-off return touchdowns, and I view Brown as a better fit in college as a running back as opposed to a wide receiver.
