ASA offensive tackle talking to heavyweights
ASA College in New York has some of the more impressive athletes in the Northeast Football Conference for this coming season, and the Avengers are making headway with their recruiting in recent years. One such stud is a big offensive tackle that has some major D1 programs looking at what he has to offer.
ASA offensive tackle Leon Brown is a massive physical specimen, and shortly will have a lot of options to choose from. Brown has had some of the biggest programs out to take a look in the past week, with two talking about offering in the near future.
"I talked to both Oklahoma and Alabama," Brown said. "Oklahoma was out today. Alabama was out last week."
Brown is 6-foot-6, 305 pounds and says two others have been showing interest.
"Illinois and Rutgers have been in contact," Brown said.
Brown says the folks at both Alabama and Oklahoma are thinking of offering.
"They both said they liked the way I played," Brown said. "They said they would get back to me about a potential offer."
Brown graduated from Parkdale High School (MD) and was being recruited by Boston University and New Mexico before failing to qualify academically. He says he should be ready to go in December.
"I can leave in December," Brown said. "Right now I am just trying to go D1. I don't have any favorites."
Brown says he is pleased with all the recent attention.
"It is a big honor," Brown said. "I appreciate everything my coaches are doing for me with exposure. I feel like I am getting my name out there."
Brown vowed to keep in contact with JCGridiron.com throughout his recruitment.
