Florida State Football Recruiting: Keyon Brown Receives Offer From Illinois

Four-star 2014 weak-side defensive end Keyon Brown has been receiving a ton of attention from teams around the entire nation. The Illinois Fighting Illini became one of those teams after offering at him on March 25th. The Illini became the seventeenth team to have offered at Brown.

The Wauchula, Florida recruit currently has offers from the Arizona State Sun Devils, Clemson Tigers, Florida Atlantic Owls, Florida State Seminoles, Georgia Bulldogs, Illinois Fighting Illini, Iowa State Cyclones, Kentucky Wildcats, Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns, Marshall Thundering Herd, Miami Hurricanes, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Ole Miss Rebels, Pittsburgh Panthers, South Florida Bulls, Tennessee Volunteers, and Central Florida Knights.

The Fighting Illini are the only Big Ten team at this moment to have offered or have interest in Keyon Brown. However, there are still some big football programs trying to land the 2014 recruit.

The teams I would put at the top of the list for Brown would be Miami (FL) and Florida State. He visited both teams this past season for the Miami/Florida State game and the FSU/Florida game.

Brown is a 6’3″, 230 pound weak-side defensive end from Wauchula, Florida. He is currently a junior at Hardee High School. In January 2013, he posted one of the top SPARQ scores at the Miami Nike Combine (90.75).

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 20th in the state of Florida, 10th among weak-side defensive ends, and 190th nationally among 2014 high school recruits by 247Sports.
