Brown has impressive showing in Las Vegas

WR Erik Brown

Fontana (Calif.) Summit wide out Erik Brown is a fast rising athlete whose stock is ready to explode. He has two early offers on the table and judging by his recent performance at the NLA Las Vegas 7 on 7, he's deserving of several more.

Erik Brown had a breakout performance in Las Vegas over the weekend and is definitely among the top pass catchers in the West region. He has a great frame, looks all of 6-2, 180 pounds, with good speed, hands and body control.

"I was hoping to make myself more known and I think I did that," Brown said in regards to his performance in Vegas. "There was some good competition out there for sure but I think I held up well and I was happy with my overall performance."

Brown ended up making the all-tournament team and there is definitely a lot buzz about him right now. He landed offers in the last few weeks from Houston and Nevada and a few more could be coming as well.

"It felt great to get those early offers, I was definitely relived," Brown said. "I've been working hard and it showed it was paying off. I'm not satisfied though at all, I'm going to keep working even harder and this just pushes me to try and earn a few more.

"I don't know that much about Houston right now but I'm going to do some research on them for sure. I know a little more about Nevada because a teammate of mine took a visit there and really liked it. I'm going to study both though and I'm definitely interested in both programs."

Brown said he could be close on a few more offers.

"I've been hearing a lot from California, Washington, Boise State, BYU, Arizona State, UCLA and a little from USC," Brown said. "ASU, Cal and Boise State all sound like they could be close to offering and I think BYU could be in there as well.

"I plan to camp with Cal and Boise State and Boise State also wants me to attend their spring game on April 13. BYU has also invited me to their spring game and those three along with ASU are my top schools right now.

"I'm looking for a school that is strong in my major, which will be communication, as well a school with a strong football program. I want a school that I'll be comfortable at and I want to find a place that will use me properly and where I can really flourish in the offense."
