Brown committed to Cincinnati in June when Brian Kelly was the Bearcats' coach. However, with Kelly taking over for Charlie Weis at Notre Dame, Brown decommitted and says he currently has no favorite.
As previously reported here at Bucknuts, Brown received a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes last week.
"My coach sent them my film," Brown said. "Then Coach Peterson called and told me I had an offer."
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Brown led Winton Woods to a 13-2 record and the Division II state championship during his senior season. He ran for 1,998 yards and passed for over 600.
However, the Buckeyes aren't recruiting Brown as a quarterback.
"They are talking about me as more of a slot receiver," Brown said.
Brown would prefer to play quarterback in college, but said he is definitely considering Ohio State as a receiver.
In addition to Ohio State, Brown has been offered by Cincinnati. Louisville, Georgia Tech and West Virginia are the other three schools on Brown's list though those three have not offered at this point.
"I visit Cincinnati Jan. 23 and Louisville Jan. 30," Brown said. "I don't have any more visits set up right now. But I'm going to visit Ohio State."
Brown continues to say he will wait until after National Signing Day to select a college so he can make an official visit to Ohio State, and possibly the other two schools on his list.
Kurelic's Comment: Brown's decision will likely come down to how much he wants to play quarterback in college. If he wants to go that direction he probably won't end up at Ohio State. If he decides on a position other than quarterback he seems likely to end up a Buckeye.
