Big time in-state prospect decommitted from Vanderbilt


Eli Brown, a four-star junior linebacker from Bowling Green, is back on the market today after his Warren East High School athletic director announced Brown is no longer committed to Vanderbilt. Prior to giving his commitment to Vandy early in the summer, Brown received scholarship offers from Kentucky and Ohio State and interest was picking up from Florida and Louisville. Mark Stoops and the UK staff will be all over him now that he’s available, that’s for sure.

Brown has tallied 48 tackles through eight games this season, plus 1,033 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns at running back. He is one of Rivals.com’s 250 top players in the 2015 recruiting class.

Pick him up.

    Let him come to CWS and get a big wiff of me! He’ll commit like that! (DONG!)

    He is visiting WKU this weekend with Nacaris Fant, WKU commit from BG High.

  4. We need him!

    This is a kid we need! Outside of Avery Williamson, this team is short on quality LB’s. we have a few committed for next year, but I’d feel better with an in state 4 star commit since odds are we will lose a couple before signing day

  5. Undertaker's Dong

    Bring Nacaris Fant on down too! There’s plenty of me to go around! (DONG!)

    Brown and his teammate Emmitt Smith (yes thats really his name) would look good in the Blue and White. Smith is a 6’3 235lb MLB and Brown is a 6’2 200lb OLB….. bring the LBer’s to UK!!!

    Even though I am not currently “recruiting” for UofL, I plan on fanning a bunch of $100 bills in yo face and introducing you to some of The Ville’s hottest clubs. Don’t worry, it’s all good. I have done nothing wrong SINCE I have been at Louisville…. No one will know and if they do, they will just ignore it.

    Come join Stoops Troops, young man!

    Have Woodyard and Trevathan tell them to come to Bronco linebacker U.

    We need help at LB! Get on it Vince!

    E Smith is not his teammate and is a stud at middle backer. E Smith plays a Warren central, Brown plays at warren east. Brown is way overrated as I seen a many kids from Franklin-Simpson put him on his butt a few weeks ago. In FLA, kid is a mid level 2** player

    Eli use to be at Central but moved to East. Fant,Brown and Smith are great kids. I watched all three grow up and become great players and good kids.

    Hey Clint hurt. That might be the funniest comment I’ve ever read! Awesomel
