Canadian transplant a D-Line prospect

David Brown is one of the top defensive line prospects in the state of Alabama this season, and he has the offer list to prove it.

David Brown is an excellent student that sports a 3.8 GPA, and he scored 23 on his first attempt on the ACT. His combination of physical prowess, at 6-3 and 260 pounds with a 4.8 forty, and scholastic excellence have earned him offers from schools all over the South.

Does that mean he has any favorites?

"My dad is in the Army," said Brown. "We've moved around a lot, so I haven't really ever latched on to a college team or anything. I don't have any favorites right now."

Listed at 6-3, 260 pounds, Brown has been clocked at 4.8 in the 40-yard dash. That's impressive speed, especially for an athlete that could end up "growing" into a defensive tackle.

Brown plays mostly defensive end in high school, but with his current size, he is likely to grow into a defensive tackle.

Madison's Bob Jones High School team went 5-5 last season, but with Brown playing both ways on the offensive and defensive lines this year, his team has a chance to make a run at the playoffs.

It's still very early in the recruiting process, but Brown already claims scholarship offers from Alabama, Auburn, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, LSU and Stanford.

"(Recruiting) is pretty intense here," said Brown with a laugh. "I'm really wide open. We moved down here from Canada when I was in the ninth grade, and I got introduced to southern football."
