Indiana safety has busy schedule

Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence Central safety Kevin Brown has already received ten verbal offers but he wants more.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound prospect mostly has offers from MAC schools and service academies. Those are all good options, he says, but he's hoping a strong round of camps this summer will help him grow that list.

"I'm going to camp at Wisconsin, Ohio State, Michigan State and Kentucky," Brown said early this week.

"After those one-days I'm planning on visiting some schools. In July I'll probably go to Wisconsin, Western Kentucky, Michigan State, Purdue and probably Northwestern."

Western Michigan is the only school Brown has visited so far. All of the schools except Northwestern are recruiting Brown as a safety. That's important, because it happens to be something Brown wants to prove he can do.

Last year he registered 65 tackles and forced four fumbles, but there are some who have said he doesn't have the speed to play safety, nor does he have the frame.

"I would prefer safety because a lot of people don't think I can do it," he noted. "That's because I'm a little heavier than most safeties. But schools like Wisconsin have said they like physical safeties.

"I'm working on my speed right now. Most of the schools looking at me are saying safety."

Brown doesn't have a strict timetable for his decision but said he hopes to have the recruiting process finished by July or August.

Does he have any favorites?

"They're all about the same," he noted. "I've got to see what all the schools that have offered me have to offer. I need to see who really is the best fit."
