Andre Brown has been making a lot of noise on the gridiron this season. The 6-1, 215 pound JH Rose (Greenville, NC) running back has had three games where he has rushed for over 300 yards.
His performance this season earned him a spot on the North Carolina/South Carolina Shrine Bowl roster, something he is very proud of accomplishing.
“I’ve been selected to the Shrine Bowl,” said Brown. “That’s a big honor in North Carolina. I’m looking forward to it – you get to go out there and showcase what God gave you. Hopefully that will lead to some All-American honors next.”
In addition, Brown has returned three kick-offs for touchdowns. JH Rose has won eight games to only one loss.
Recruiting-wise, Brown has set two more official visits. Having already been to Virginia on September 27th, he will go to Nebraska next followed by NC State. Miami (FL) and Tennessee are in the mix and may receive the final two visits if Brown decides to make all five.
“I’ve set up visits to Nebraska for November 15th and NC State for December 5th,” said Brown. “I might take all of my visits, but I’m not sure. I was thinking about committing on my birthday, which is December 15th. I’m not sure about that yet.”
Virginia was Brown’s leader following the official visit, however the Wolfpack appear to have made up some ground. Those two are his current favorites.
“NC State and UVA are fighting for the number one spot right now,” said Brown. “They are above the rest. I like UVA because one of my goals is to make it to the NFL. Coach Groh has experienced the highest level in the NFL having won the Super Bowl. Academics wise, it’s a good school. I liked what I saw when I went on my official visit.
“There is a lot of competition at NC State. TA [McClendon] is doing really well. The competition would only help me get better. The coaches are really down to earth like Virginia’s. NC State’s coaches recruit me different from everyone else. Every coach fills out a card and sends it to me. Each card says either ‘good job’ or they tell me something good about NC State.”
Brown indicated that location will not be a factor in his decision.
“Honestly, location doesn’t matter to me at all,” said Brown.
