It’s decision day for 4-star wide receiver Barion Brown, a highly coveted player out of Nashville, TN. Brown has official offers from the Kentucky Wildcats, as well as Alabama, Ole Miss and TCU — all three being schools that are of course have a reputation for landing talented athletes.

The 6-foot-1, 173 pound wideout is ranked as the 111th-player in the country and is the third-ranked player in the state of Tennessee. Brown would be the highest-ranked wide receiver to ever commit to Kentucky and appears to be a talent that could immediately impact the team next season.

You can watch Brown’s highlights here.

According to 247 Sports, Kentucky is the lead school for Crystal Ball predictions. Considering where the Kentucky football program was just 8-10 years ago, even being in serious contention for a skill position player like Brown shows how much progress Stoops and his staff have made.
