Simi Valley (Calif.) athlete Sean Brown is one of the most versatile players out West with a very intriguing upside to him.
Brown has some rare gifts and we really like his combination of size, speed and playmaking ability. He’s all of 6-3, 195 pounds but can run and clocked a 10.9-100m earlier this spring during track season.
He has also run a 6.98-60, runs on the schools 4X100m relay team and his speed shows up on his football tape as well.
He played both ways for Simi Valley last season, totaling 39 tackles with four interceptions from his safety position and added 13 catches for 292 yards and three touchdowns at receiver. We like him long term as a safety but feel he has the talent and skill set to play on either side of the ball.
On the recruiting front, Brown currently holds scholarship offers from Arizona, Colorado State, BYU, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah State and Washington State. He has also has a pair of official trips locked in.
“I’m going to Colorado State June 10 and Arizona June 17,” Brown said. “Colorado State is recruiting me the hardest right now and I really have a good relationship with the coaching staff.
“I took an unofficial visit there back in April and liked it a lot. The staff was really welcoming to me and my family. They treated us really well and talked a lot about developing me as a player and that’s a big part of my decision making process.”
Arizona is another school making a big impression on Brown.
“Arizona is definitely going to be a problem for teams in a couple of years after the great recruiting classes they just signed,” Brown said. “I like the coaching staff and they have a lot of connections to the League (NFL) that would be beneficial down the line.
“I think in the coming years, they have a chance to develop in to a really good team and it would be fun to be a part of that.”
Brown doesn’t have any other visits locked in but has a handful of school he would like to check out.
“I would love to visit all the schools that have offered me,” Brown said. “I also want to see Oregon, UCLA and Washington sometime this summer.
“I’ve been talking to Washington a lot and just heard from Oregon earlier this week. As for a commitment timeframe, I don’t really have one right now and just plan to play this process out before I commit anywhere.”
