Army Incoming: Defensive Ends, pt II

ArmySports.com continues its introduction of the 2013 incoming Black Knight freshman. In part II of our discussion of the plebe defensive ends we look at Chasen Brown, Robert Jenkins, Dylan Leeming, Brandon Carletti-Silva.

Chasen Brown was used exclusively as an edge rusher last season at the United States Military Academy Prep School. Brown is from Germantown high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He played outside linebacker and running back in high school. Brown (5-10, 195) is a good athlete who's run the 100 meters in a personal best 10.9 seconds. He had two tackles against Milford Academy including a huge hit on the last play of the game. In the finale versus NAPS he made three tackles and had a quarterback pressure. He short but thick, strong and runs pretty well. Chasen is a big effort high energy player. He didn't drop in coverage at all last year. With his speed he may be a better fit at Rover or SAM but it's hard to say because he never had to cover anyone in space. Brown had a number of FCS offers but chose Army



Robert Jenkins was a reserve whip linebacker and some B-back last season at the United States Military Academy Prep School. He was a two way player as a fullback and linebacker for a very talented Loyola high school team in Los Angeles, California. Jenkins is 5-11" and weights 205 pounds. He had a key fumble recovery against NAPS in the finale. Jenkins is a solid player and a decent athlete. He found himself behind better players last year. The Army defensive staff plans to move him to quick end. Jenkins is a developmental prospect as a defensive end at this point and he will need time to learn the position.



Dylan Leeming was a back up defensive end last season at the United States Military Academy Prep School. He was born in South Africa and moved to the United States when he was five years old. Lemming is a lanky, lean 6-4, 212 pound defensive end from New Canaan high school in Connecticut. His senior year he recorded 116 tackles and had 4 ½ sacks. Leeming has some ability to rush the passer but he needs to spend time in Brett Gerch's weight room to get stronger and faster if he hopes to develop into a factor.



Brandon Carletti-Silva played defensive end last season at USMAPS. Carletti-Silva (5-11, 210) was a three-year starting quarterback at Duncan high school in Oklahoma. He was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association Class 5A West All-State team. He's a well built athlete who's tough and competes. Brandon wasn't athletic enough for an Army option quarterback and was moved to defense. He played some defensive end and contributed on special teams. He was listed as a quarterback on the R-day list but his future is most likely on defense.
