Last week, the father of Notre Dame recruit Chris Brown said that his son remains committed to the Irish, but that he would support his son if he wanted to look at other schools.
It looks like Chris Brown is looking at other schools.
Brown, a wide receiver from Hanahan (S.C.) High School, plans to attend South Carolina’s Nov. 12 game against Florida.
“I’m going to stay open,” the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Brown told the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier. “It (the commitment) is not set in stone. I just felt comfortable making the commitment. But if an opportunity comes along and I feel I need to go elsewhere, I will.”
Joe Brown said last week that his son had canceled a visit to Virginia Tech.
“He’s committed to Notre Dame,” the father said. “He kind of shut the door. We canceled that.”
But the father also added that he wouldn’t stand in his son’s way if he chose to go elsewhere.
“As a parent,” he said, “I should never limit his options.”
Chris Brown told the Post and Courier that ND and South Carolina are the only schools he is considering.
Brown is one of three wide receivers in the current cycle to have given Notre Dame a verbal commitment, joining Deontay Greenberry of Fresno, Calif., and Justin Ferguson of Pembroke Pines, Fla.
Three wide receivers are expected to make official visits for next week’s USC game. They are Bryce Treggs of Bellflower, Calif., Jordan Payton of Westlake Village, Calif., and Amara Darboh of West Des Moines, Iowa. Treggs is committed to Cal. Payton decommitted from USC.
Nelson Agholor of Tampa, Fla., visited last week for ND’s game against Air Force.
