Brown Keeping in Contact with Miami

Brown Keeping in Contact with Miami

Tito Benach
2014 Hardee (Fla.) defensive end Keyon Brown is rated as one of the top pass rushers in the nation and is looking to focus on improving one skill this summer that is sure to take his talents to the next level.

“My speed, I’m trying to get faster. So I’m trying to work on speed.”

While some recruits find the recruiting process to be stressful at times, Brown has yet to feel any stress during it.

“I think it’s kinda fun. I mean I can understand where it can be stressful in the middle of the season or towards the end of the season, but right now I’m enjoying and having a good time with it.”

The 6’3 230 pound end prospect has been hearing from multiple top schools such as Georgia, Florida State, Miami, Clemson and Tennessee.

In the past, Brown has refrained from naming a leader. However, there is a new school in the front for his services.

“Georgia, Georgia is my leader right now, they’re sticking out now.”

The Hardee star has built a good relationship with the staff in Athens and likes the team’s defense.

“Coach (Todd) Grantham and coach (Bryan McClendon) came down twice, I’m talking to them a lot and they seem like great guys. I know Georgia’s defense is great and I think Georgia would be a great school.”

While the Bulldogs may the lead at the moment, he still has Miami in the mix.

“I still like them a lot, it’s still a great school. I wouldn’t say Miami’s far behind Georgia right now, it’s just that I like Georgia a lot right now.”

The star defensive end is in constant contact with Coach Jethro Franklin and maintains a good relationship with him.

“My mom just talked to Coach Franklin today, my mom and him are good friends. They talk as much as me and him do. They have a great relationship and I have a great relationship with him, so thats good. I would say they’re one of the main schools recruiting me pretty hard.”

Brown is very intrigued by Miami’s campus and always seems to enjoy visiting it.

“That’s one of the main reason’s I like Miami. I can comeback at any time. It feels like a family down there and I can visit at any time.”

The top ranked rush edge player is planning on returning to the Miami campus sometime during the summer.

“I’m sure I’ll be back down there, it’s only about two and a half hours. I’ll probably be back down there sometime, I just don’t know when.”

Brown is looking to have his final decision following his senior season.

“I’m pretty sure it will be after my season, I mean I’m not putting an exact time on it but I’m pretty sure it will be after my season.”

Kid is about 6'1.5 225 reminds me of Marcus Robinson out of hs.. He has to play LB on the next level or 3/4 edge rusher will not be a DE. Kid is small and thats why UF won't offer him if they ever did he would commit to them.. Miami should focus on Chad Thomas, Kentavious Street, and the kid Blackwood from Brooksville he has the frame to be a 6'5 250-260 beast DE.
 
Lawd I am starting to hate UGA...
 
Todd Grantham their DC gets offers to leave there every year. He isn't going to be there long. I don't know how much stock a kid puts into the DC though. I live up here in ATL and Dawg fans all know he's not there much longer. Whatever that's worth.
 
I've about had it with UGA

I lived there for over 15 years, and I'm not sure what these coaches are selling, but Grantham had NFL players all over his defense last year, and they were pathetic. They ranked 80th vs. the run! Absolutely pathetic.

They are. By far. The most. Underachieving program of the past 20 years.
 
Grantham is a terrible dc, was horrendous in the NFL. Georgia's def tremendously underachieves.
 
Yeah, if based won-loss records off recruiting stars and UGA would be undefeated. Few big-time programs do less with more.
 
Where would you "experts" rank Brown compared to other edge players we're recruiting?

i guess 2013 taught you nothing
 
Depends how you define edge rusher. If you mean weak side defensive ends, much lower than of you mean stand up speed rusher.

As far as WDEs go, Chad Thomas has to be at the top of our board.

After Thomas is Brown, Justin Jones, Kevin Bronson, and Rohan Blackwood.
 
Jones is a strongside end to me, maybe even a tackle down the road. As for Brown, I don't know if he is big enough to be that high up the list as a true WDE. He seems out of the same mold as Bond or Mike Smith.
 
With Jones, Pete just said hes getting good vibes from him

Jones could def do some work on the strong side or even grow into a DT.
 
Jones is a future 5-technique which we desperately need if we are going to play this multiple defensive scheme. Without a 5-tech that can hold the point of attack and hold the tackle for our 9-techs/OLB we will never have a good pass rush in our 3-4 schemes.
