Brown's Class

Elijah Pierre

Sorry I'm a little late with this, but Brown announced its new crop of incoming players last week.

Phil Estes and his Brown program are still a throwback of sorts when it comes to recruiting. The Bears are the only Ivy team that still focuses on one specific region of the country primarily. That region is New England, and 13 of the 30 incoming players hail from the region or did post graduate years at a New England prep school.

Some of the impressive New Englanders in this class include:

-WR Jaelon Blandburg who did a PG year at Wilbraham and Monson Academy

-OL Phil Lynch from Boston College HS

-DT Elijah Pierre from Boston's Xaverian Brothers HS

-OL Nicholas Allsop also from Xaverian Brothers

-OL Jay Carnevale from St. John's Prep near Boston.

-WR Demitri Jackson from Lawrence Academy in Groton, MA

... and that's just the New Englanders.

The non-New Englanders who look good to me are:

-LB Brendan Pyne

-DB Jared Cutlip

-DB George Schmelzle

-WR Jakob Prall

In case you haven't guessed, this looks like a very good group of incoming players for Brown. It certainly seems like it's one of the better recruiting classes in the league. Perhaps the only real concern is that no new QB's in Estes' pass-happy system seem to jump out at you. But really good QB's are very hard to spot at this stage.
