This would be a great pick up.  You can't teach athleticism.  He'd be our 3rd highest rated guy on 247 if we can get him.

I also find it interesting that the two people who show up on his 247 profile as recruiting him are Teegardin (safeties coach), and Heard (wide receivers coach).  Might be a good enough athlete to have the option of playing on either side of the ball, kind of like Taylor coming into this year.

Just some recruiting numbers I threw together quick to see where we stand.  Hopefully we can add a few more and keep most of them committed.  Could be one of our best classes ever.  2013 was obviously good, but the depth of that year is nowhere near as good as the depth we're getting now.  Comparing two similar rated guys from each year, in 2013 we had a commitment from Anthony Young (170th best WR).  We had 8 position guys ranked lower than him.  Some panned out, but quite a few didn't.  This year we have a commitment from Jordan Jakes (130th best WR), and we only have 2 position players rated lower than him.  All of our guys this year would rated quite a bit higher than Young from 2013.  We really are building some darn good depth.

Current ranks

Current 247 B1G rank = 10 

Average player rank = 11th place at an 85.75 average (counting Illinois' 7 commit class)

National rank = 41

If we sign Brown

247 B1G rank = 10

Average player rank = 10th place at an 85.88 average

National rank = 39 (with at least 5 less commits than 6 of the 8 teams in the 31-38 range)

If we sign Brown and don't count our long snapper commit

I love that we signed a long snapper, but a specialist like that definitely drags down our average player ranking

247 B1G rank = 10

Average player rank = 9th place at an 86.4 average (less than .3 behind Illinois and Iowa)

National rank = 39

How many more scholarships/spots do you have for the class?

Somebody smarter than me could probably give a better answer, but I'm guessing we'll be around 21.  The roster shows only 18 in the senior class, so I'd guess there will be a few more than that.  I'm too lazy to look to see if all 18 are scholarship players, but I don't think it will be a real big class for us.
