Equanimeous St. Brown insists his next step in the recruiting process remains unknown.

No commitment sits on the horizon and no visits are scheduled for January. The only certainty, for now, appears to be a signing day announcement.

“I'm not sure if I'm going to visit any more schools,” St. Brown said Tuesday via phone. “I might or might not. It depends on how I feel once I'm done with this.”

This, as St. Brown alluded to, is Friday’s Under Armour All-America Game in St. Petersburg, Fla. St. Brown arrived in Florida earlier this week and started practicing with Team Highlight on Monday.

Squaring off against some of the nation’s top defensive backs is nothing new for the 6-foot-5, 200-pound St. Brown. In the summer, St. Brown attended a pair of elite camps  — The Opening and Rivals Five-Star Challenge.

“I just want to do the best I can and show that the West Coast isn't a pushover,” St. Brown said.

St. Brown hopes to prove himself after a less-than-stellar senior season statistically. He caught 32 passes for 485 yards and four touchdowns for Anaheim (Calif.) Servite. Rivals rates St. Brown as a four-star prospect and the No. 12 wide receiver in his class. 247Sports pegs him as a three-star recruit and No. 50 at the position.

Notre Dame appears to be St. Brown’s perceived favorite even if he’s not quite willing to admit any leaders. He spoke highly of what the Irish could offer him.

“I like Notre Dame because it's such a prestigious school,” St. Brown said. “They have a good education. I think I have a good chance playing there and going to the NFL. The connections they have with alumni is great too.”

St. Brown visited Notre Dame in June and again in September. Those visits helped the big receiver to imagine himself playing in head coach Brian Kelly’s system.

"Their offense utilizes receivers well,” St. Brown said. “They move them in different positions and they throw the ball often."

His only other official visit went to Utah in November. Now comes a waiting game to see if any other schools emerge as major contenders before signing day when he announces his college choice.

"I'm going to go with my heart,” St. Brown said. “It's a gut feeling.” | 574-235-6214 | Twitter: @TJamesNDI
