JH Rose (NC) running back Andre Brown was scheduled to make an official visit to Nebraska this weekend, however he will not be able to make it because of the North Carolina state football playoffs.

The Huskers remain in the running for one of the top backs in the East, and join Virginia, NC State, and Miami (FL), to make up Brown’s final four.

“I’m down to four schools – Virginia, NC State, Miami, and Nebraska,” said the 6-1, 210 pound Brown. “I have rescheduled my visit to Nebraska for January 9th. I’m probably going to NC State on December 6th, but that’s the weekend of the state championship game if we make it. I’m going to visit Miami, but nothing’s set. It’s going to be really busy for me over the next few months.”

Brown has already made an official visit to Virginia, who is at the top of his list right now.

“Virginia’s still at the top,” said Brown. “I liked it a lot up there. The coaches are pretty cool and offensively, they fit me really well. Everything was great up there.”

Virginia Special Teams Coach Corwin Brown has developed an excellent relationship with Brown. The two talk on a weekly basis.

“I’m really close with Coach [Corwin] Brown,” said Brown. “We talk once a week, about anything pretty much…just chill and talk. We actually talk about Madden 2004 a lot…he thinks he can actually beat me (laughs). He’s just real cool. All of the recruiting coaches I talk to are pretty cool.”

Brown has scholarship offers from all of his final four schools. All except for Miami are recruiting him to play running back. The Hurricanes are looking at him to play wide receiver, his original position as a high school freshman.

“It doesn’t really matter where I play,” Brown admitted.

No doubt Brown will make one school very very happy when he makes his decision. He followed up an excellent junior season last year with a phenomenal senior campaign.

For the year, he has rushed for around 2,400 yards and 36 touchdowns. He led Rose (10-1) to a first round playoff win over William Ashley, 65-3. Brown attributes his outstanding season to a “more balanced attack this year,” which has opened up some room for the running game.
