Brown Feeling Arkansas

Texas prep cornerback Greg Brown (5-11, 175, 4.4) is taking his official visit to the University of Arkansas this weekend at the same time a bevy of other top prospects will be on campus on unofficial visits.

The only reason that Texas powerhouse Cedar Hill's 19-game winning streak won't be extended this week is because the Longhorns aren't playing.

But the good news for the University of Arkansas is that open date allows cornerback Greg Brown (5-11, 175, 4.4) to take his official visit to the school.

"I really like Arkansas," Brown said. "Arkansas is the number one right now in my top five. They have a great football program."

In addition to Arkansas, Brown – who came to the Razorbacks' camp this past summer, is considering by Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri and Virginia.

He got a chance to watch the Razorbacks' heartbreaking 41-38 loss at Alabama last weekend on ESPN.

"That was a great football game," Brown said. "Arkansas got down, but showed a lot of heart in coming back. I was very impressed."

Cedar Hill alum Jerell Norton is a cornerback for the Razorbacks right now and the coaches are telling Brown they need guys like him for next season.

"They have let me know how much that they want me and how they think I could come in and play," Brown said.

Brown's Cedar Hill squad won the state title with a 15-0 season in 2006 and has started out with a 3-0 mark this season.

Coupled with a win in the last game of 2004 and you've got 19 straight wins with last week's 52-7 pasting of North Crowley.

"Our team this year is a lot different," Brown said. "We don't have all the all-stars this season, but we have a lot of guys playing great."

Brown is not seeing a lot of passes come his way.

"I am just going out there trying to do my best, but there isn't a lot of action coming my way," Brown said. "It gets a little boring at times, but I am just staying ready."
