2015 ATH Leon Brown, Jr. Added to 2015 Watch List

2015 ATH Leon Brown, Jr. (5’8, 175, 4.45) of Miami Northwestern is a fast, fluid athlete that carries the ball and catches passes for the storied Miami Northwestern program. This season, he rushed 34 times for 161 yards and two touchdowns, and caught five passes for 24 yards. As a sophomore, he had over 400 yards receiving and three touchdown catches.

Brown has been added to the 2015 Watch List because of his potential and athletic ability.

Northwestern’s explosive junior says he’s hearing from West VirginiaCincinnatiMiami, and Missouri. He spoke about the contact he’s had with each program.

“I’ve received a game invitation from West Virginia, but I couldn’t attend. I get a lot of mail from the Mountaineers.

“I’ve been invited to two games this season by Cincinnati, but I was unable to attend,” Brown told Varsity Preps. “I get some recruiting mail from them, too.

Missouri sends a lot of recruiting materials explaining how their season is going. I have over 20 letters from them.”

The Miami Hurricanes are showing the Northwestern prospect the most attention.

“I’ve been invited to all the home games, been to every single home game this year. Miami sends the most mail and is showing the most interest,” he said. “I love the Canes. I like the atmosphere and their offensive scheme.”

Brown, who has yet to receive any verbal offers, said he has no preference on school location.

“At this point, I’m open to playing college football anywhere. Location doesn’t matter to me.”

The opportunity to earn playing time as a freshman will be significant to the Northwestern talent.

“I would like to play and contribute right away.”

Academics will play an essential role in his college decision.

“The quality of the education I’ll receive is important,” Brown explained. “I have a 2.9 GPA and I’ll take the ACT in December.”

He believes he’ll play slot receiver on the next level.

“I think being in the slot is where I’m most effective. I can play anywhere and make plays, but I envision myself there. I think once the ball is in my hands, I can make an electric play.”

Brown has a busy offseason planned for himself, including getting out to as many camps and combines as possible.

“I’ve already made plans to camp at Georgia and I want to make the South Florida Express 7-on-7 team. I also plan to run track to help me stay in shape and get faster.”
