Brown gets on the board with two offers

2/28/2013

Fontana (Calif.) Summit effectively ran the ball to the tune of 200 yards per game last fall, so Class of 2014 receiver Erik Brown wasn't necessarily the primary option.

That might change this season.

Brown received his first two scholarship offers Thursday from Houston and Nevada. After waiting patiently the last two seasons, the 6-foot, 170-pound prospect was happy to start compiling his list.

"It was a little relief off my back," Brown said. "I'm partly satisfied, yes, but still motivated to get more."

Brown added that Arizona State, Boise State and California are currently recruiting him the hardest. He intends to unofficially visit those schools in the coming months. UCLA, which Brown said was the first school to reach out to him as a sophomore, is another he holds in high regard.

"It's close to home, I like coach Jim Mora, definitely, and I love that offense," Brown said of UCLA. "I actually know Brett Hundley since he and my cousin Devon Blackmon used to work out at camps together."

Brown figures to be a key part of the Inland Empire-based Ground Zero 7-on-7 team, which is coached by Armond Hawkins Sr., the father of 2013 cornerbacks Chris Hawkins (USC) and Armond Hawkins Jr. (Idaho).
