SEVERN, Md. -- More than 300 prospects came out to the Best of the DMV Showcase May 18, one of those in attendance was Quince Orchard (Gaithersburg, Md.) junior defensive back Malcom Brown. Brown took some time to talk to FoxSportsNEXT about where he is in the recruiting process.

More than 300 prospects came out to the Best of the DMV Showcase May 18, one of those in attendance was Quince Orchard (Gaithersburg, Md.) junior defensive back Malcom Brown.

"These events are really about competition and just gaining more exposure," said Brown, who holds offers from Old Dominion and Appalachian State.

The 6-foot, 175-pound prospect is also hearing from several ACC schools including: Maryland, Duke, Boston College and North Carolina State as well as a few Division I-AA programs.

"I have been hearing from Maryland which is pretty cool because I have been a fan for a while," Brown said. "Right now if Maryland were to offer me they would be my top school. I could definitely see myself committing if they were to offer. "

Maryland's move to the Big Ten Conference is a big reason that the Terps are so high on Brown's list.

"Maryland moving to the Big Ten is huge," Brown said. "I have always wanted to play in the that conference so that definitely effects my decision."

Brown has been in touch with Maryland assistant Coach[Tom] Brattan, who also stopped by Quince Orchard during the May evaluation period.

"I think they see me either fitting in as a corner or safety," Brown said. "I am pretty flexible though I can play either position."

Brown talked about the strengths of his game. " I would say my biggest strength is, well, my strength," Brown said. "Plus, my speed my best 40 time is 4.48 (seconds)."

Living close to Maryland's campus, Brown has been out to College Park, Md. several times.

"Maryland has a great campus and I know they are a very good academic school too, so that's big," Brown said. "I went to their camp last year and they invited me out again this year. So hopefully I can pick up an offer then."

Although Brown is high on the Terps he said if either Penn State or Ohio State were to offer, they could takeover his top spot. The Quince Orchard defensive back has yet to firm up his plans for the summer and he said he is waiting to see who expresses the most interest before planning any trips.

"The environment is what it will really come down to because I am going to be there for the next four years,"" Brown said. "I am just looking to see where I feel the most comfortable when I am on campus."
