Four-Star running back Jason Brown of Seattle (WA) O’Dea High narrowed his list to three schools Thursday afternoon.

The 5-foot-10, 200 pounder is down to the following: Washington, Michigan State, and Oregon

Breaking down the finalists

Brown broke down what stands out about each of his top schools:

Washington Huskies– There is no place like home, playing for the home school gives me a unique opportunity to put on for my city in my city. With a proven track record of NFL running backs and successful seasons, led by the guys who did it in our own backyard. The ability to stay home and play in front of the people that helped shape me into the man I am today, on and off the field, week in and week out, is special. 

Michigan State Spartans– The relationship and connection I’ve built with the staff at MSU has been one of the most consistent and meaningful in my recruiting process. From the whole staff and team, to people in East Lansing make that place feel like home. MSU has something cooking up and I like what I see.

Oregon Ducks– Like many of us as kids when I was introduced to the sport of football at the collegiate level the University of Oregon was the first school that I kind of fell in love with. The swag and aura about the whole program just radiates greatness and when you actually get the chance to build a relationship with the people that make the place you understand why they are as successful as they’ve been. I can see myself being a duck.

“Lacks verified size. Listed at around 5-foot-10, 200 pounds. Would not be surprising if he was closer to 5-foot-9. Has a stout, compact build. Productive rusher who has dominated the competition in Washington over the course of his high school career. Plays in a run-heavy, under center offense. Downhill, decisive runner with good decisiveness. Reads his blocks and darts through the hole with confidence. Runs with a strong base and contact balance. Works to pick up yards after contact. Looks to be a natural pass catcher out of the backfield. Rushed for over 1,600 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior. Also sees some snaps on defense. Throws the shot put in track and field.Does not have any athletic markers aside from the shot put. Can improve burst and long speed.”
