Selah Brown enjoyed his first virtual visit with Stanford

Stanford hosted Selah Brown on a virtual visit Friday and the event did its job to make it easier for Brown to picture himself at Stanford.

"After the visit, I definitely felt more comfortable with Stanford," he said in a direct message to Cardinal Sports Report.

Defensive coordinator Lance Anderson, area recruiter Ron Gould (his first contact with Stanford), and recruiting director Mike Eubanks were Brown's hosts and the junior from Louisville said the highlight of the Zoom meeting was getting to know more coaches.

Selah Brown has had a high level of interest in Stanford since head coach David Shaw and defensive line coach Diron Reynolds offered him Aug. 31. Brown has been in regular contact with Reynolds via texts and FaceTime calls.

"Reynolds is a great guy," Brown said in November. "He’s chill and preaches a lot about excellence. I’ve learned more about how much of a rich tradition that’s there and the amount of successful people, and even really famous people, that went through Stanford and are now living their best lives."

Brown has been offered by Northwestern, Cincinnati, Missouri, Boston College Louisville, Virginia and other schools. He's looking for a school with a "great support system" that has coaches and staff who he hopes will "take me in like a son and develop me as an even better football player, too.

"I’ll be all the way across the country far from home, so it's just people around me that help me in every aspect to feel home and to succeed."

Rivals' Josh Helmoldt interviewed Brown in September and and Brown described what Reynolds had to say about his Hudl videos.

“Coach Reynolds said he has recruited a lot of guys and been coaching for a lot of years,” Brown said. “He said my game is different from a lot of dudes because I can play anywhere along the line, my get-off is fast and I have speed for a big guy.”
