Citadel walk-on commitment Boeing Brown has an interesting name and an intriguing story.
Brown was a ballyhooed QB recruit early in his high school career — so ballyhooed that somebody created this facebook page urging Steve Spurrier to recruit the 6-4, 220-pounder to USC.
But Brown lost his starting QB job as a senior in a move that was controversial in his Connecticut hometown. Recruiting guru Max Emfinger wrote this piece in December wondering why Brown did not have a single scholarship offer after his senior year.
At one point, it looked like Brown might join ex-Citadel coach Charlie Taaffe at Central Florida. But Brown tweeted recently that he has committed to The Citadel:
Committed to The Citadel – Class of 2017 and to play Quarterback with the Bulldogs! Hard work pays off!
As a walk-on commitment, Brown has not signed a letter of intent, so Citadel coach Kevin Higgins is not yet able to talk about him. Needless to say, Boeing Brown should be an interesting interview when he arrives on campus.
