Jesse Brown, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound all-purpose running back from Snellville, Ga., has committed to Northwestern. Brown tweeted the announcement Saturday:
Brown, who has a 247 Sports composite score of .8281, chose Northwestern over Boston College, NC State, Iowa and Kansas State, among others.
According to his Hudl page, Brown has run a 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds, though high school 40-times are always dubious. You can judge for yourself though. Here are his highlights:
Brown is Northwestern's first running back in the class of 2016, and 15th commit overall. Northwestern's most highly-rated target at the position, Tre Bryant, has yet to make a decision, but Northwestern is seemingly still very much in the mix.
