KSU remains among finalists in Bryce Brown sweepstakes

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

Top recruit Bryce Brown is set to make his announcement later today on where he will attend college.

Kansas State remains among the finalists for Brown, who bypassed the traditional national signing day on Feb. 4 to complete his visits allowed by the NCAA.

He will make his announcement at 1 p.m. today at a news conference scheduled at the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in Wichita, Kan.

Other finalists include LSU, Tennessee and Oregon. And Brian Butler, Brown's personal adviser and trainer, told the New Orleans Times-Picayune that Brown is still also considering USC, Clemson and Miami.

Scouts Inc. ranks Brown No. 8 in the ESPNU 150 and he is the second-ranked running back on the list.

Brown has visited Tennessee twice in the past month, including a trip to the watch the Volunteers' first scrimmage of spring practice on Saturday. That's made many observers believe that he could be headed there to join Lane Kiffin's team.

"I am not leaning to any school at this time," Brown said in a statement posted Saturday on PotentialPlayers.com, a Web site operated by Butler that has been used to issue recruiting updates on Brown. "I will go back home and spend time with my family and continue to pray for God's clarity when it comes to my decision."

Brown has been a Miami commitment for the past 13 months, but has not visited the school on an official visit. His brother, Arthur, a top 2008 prospect, remains on the Hurricanes' roster as a linebacker.

Among Brown's other official visits was a trip to Missouri.
