Keith Brown Commits To Louisville Cardinals

Louisville steals a top linebacker out of Miami.

Keith Brown, a top inside linebacker recruit, has committed to the Louisville Cardinals. Brown stars for Miami's Norland High School. Offered by over 30 BCS schools, Brown had actually committed to the Miami Hurricanes and Illinois in previous years. He decommitted from Miami to commit to Illinois, but decommitted again from Illinois after the firing of Ron Zook.

Brown has a decent frame for an inside linebacker prospect at 6'2" and 230 pounds. His biggest strength is obviously his power. He excels at taking on blocks, shedding them and tackling the runner. Brown isn't as good in coverage, but he certainly doesn't struggle in that area, either. He'll likely not be running with slot receivers down the field, but if used correctly, he will be able to be effective against the pass.

Brown will be expected to play immediately for Charlie Strong's defense.
