Hi Collin, this beautiful spider is definitely NOT a brown recluse. This looks like a Wolf Spider. There are many, many species of wolf spiders. Here is a link for you to browse. I would guess your image, especially if you crop it, should be good enough to get a close ID.

For comparison, here is a link to the Bugguide page for the Brown Recluse:
