Brown: "It's Only Tulsa"

Katy DB Isaiah Brown

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. After watching Katy defeat Cedar Hill in the Texas Class 5A Division II title game, FOX Sports NEXT caught up with Katy cornerback Isaiah Brown for his postgame thoughts…

At one point, Katy (TX) cornerback Isaiah Brown was somewhat unknown. Fast forward to Week 16 in the state title game, which Katy won 35-24 over Cedar Hill, and Brown is a known name.

Earlier this year, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Brown made a commitment to Tulsa, as that was one of the programs that showed lots of interest during spring ball, and offering during that time as well. 

Since then, Brown seems to have a stock that is rising with each passing week on the field. But even with Brown's senior success, not much more movement in his recruitment has occurred. And for Brown, he is okay with that. 

"I don't know right now, it's really only Tulsa. That's the only school showing me interest and that's the school I'm committed so it's really only them," Brown said. "I'm still just keeping my options open, but right now, it's Tulsa."

In the title game, Brown had three tackles and a pass break up. Of course, many of the top cornerbacks affect the game in ways that doesn't show on any stat sheets. 

For a portion of the game, Brown was matched up against Quincy Adeboyejo, a top-rated wide receiver on the FOX Sports NEXT rankings. But in the end, Brown matched up well against Adeboyejo. Brown would credit one of his teammates for being prepared for this.

"I felt really comfortable because I knew I was guarding Quincy. All week, coach had me guarding Kyle Fulks in practice," Brown said. "And I've been saying all year long that he (Fulks) is the best receiver in the nation. I was prepared well because I practiced against Fulks. I was ready for the best and I felt like I did my best."

Brown continued.

"It was all about the film. Before school, at lunch and after practice, we were watching film. I just came out knowing formations and the things that they were going to do. I was prepared."

Based on the results, that seems to be a valid statement.
