Class of 2018 defensive back Jamari Brown is set to make his college decision later this month, and Kentucky might be emerging as the favorite in his recruitment.
Brown — a 6-foot-3, 180-pound prospect from Pompano Beach, Fla. — recently cut his list of schools to Auburn, Kentucky and Temple. He also had reported scholarship offers from Louisville, Mississippi State, Oregon and others.
Auburn has been the favorite on Brown’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page, but two reporters who cover Auburn recruiting logged picks in favor of UK over the weekend. Brown has already visited all three schools on his final list and is set to announce his college decision Aug. 17.
Though 247Sports ranks Brown as a two-star prospect, he’s a three-star recruit on the Rivals.com and Scout.com websites.
Junior-college player Dom Williams is currently UK’s only defensive back commitment for the class of 2018.
