He also had offers from several top programs, including LSU, Alabama and Georgia. Defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs is his lead recruiter. Ohio State extended a scholarship offer on Friday.


"Firstly, I want to truly thank God for the position he has aput me in and the blessings he continues to send down," Brown posted on Twitter. "I want to point out my father for being there every step of the way. I want to thank my coaches at Warren Easton and everyone who has ever invested time in me."


Brown was born in Cincinnati before moving to Louisiana as a young child.
