Another change for Keith Brown
Four-star outside linebacker Keith Brown (Miami, Fla./Norland) is no longer committed to Illinois, multiple sources report.
According to Rivals.com, Brown will choose between the Illini, Louisville and Miami-Fla. on Saturday. He originally picked the Hurricanes, under Randy Shannon, in September of his junior year. He switched to Illinois this November, just before former head coach Ron Zook's departure. He officially visited the Fighting Illini on Nov. 11 and the Cardinals on Dec. 9.
Two of Brown's Norland teammates, Under Armour All-American athlete Randy Johnson and three-star offensive tackle Ereck Flowers, are on board with the Canes. Illinois has secured one of Brown's fellow linebackers in Lamar Atkins. Three-star wide receiver Brandon Snell (Miami, Fla./Carol City), who previously attended Norland, is a Louisville verbal.
Brown was also offered by Florida, Florida State, South Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Rutgers, Clemson, Wisconsin, Alabama, Purdue, Texas Tech, Central Florida and Florida International.
