Ever since the Nike Camp last spring, Jeff Brown's stock has been on the rise. The hard hitting free safety from Narbonne high school in Harbor City (Ca.) still holds Colorado at the top of his list. "They are a big time power house in football," Brown said. "The Big-12 is run country and one of my specialties is stopping the run. So if I did go to Colorado, it would be a perfect fit."
His top five currently consists of Colorado, Arizona, Michigan, Arizona State and Washington State. Duke, Cal, Notre Dame and San Diego State are also in the mix. "I have two verbal offers from Colorado and Arizona," he said.
Although a few schools project him as a cornerback in college, Brown sees his skills best suited at safety. "I'm aggressive out on the field and a leader, attributes you want in a free safety," Brown explained. "Other people are starting to look at me at corner, as they see my stock rise up."
Which colleges would he definitely like to take an official visit to? "Michigan, Colorado and Arizona and the last two I'm not sure about," Brown stated. "Maybe I'll take a visit to Cal, I like them."
Brown runs a 4.57 second 40-yard dash and can squat over 360 pounds. In the classroom, he holds a 3.0 grade point average.
As a junior, Brown compiled 80 tackles (41 solo), five interceptions, four caused fumbles and six quarterback sacks. He lays opponents out on the field. "Jeff Brown is one of the hardest hitting people out there," former Narbonne teammate and current San Diego State player, Antwan Applewhite said. "He hits people with reckless abandonment. He will lay you down. He might not get up right away, but you surely won't get up."
Brown is excited for his senior season. "We have a team goal to win the 4A championship and I think we can do it," he said. "My individual goals are just to bring my game up two notches. Before college I just want to work on everything overall and play with more discipline."
