Brown Good with Tech

FOX Sports NEXT is Scout.com is on the scene in Houston for the 2012 Offense-Defense All-American Bowl. While there, we caught up with San Antonio O'Connor offensive lineman Baylen Brown, who made the choice to commit to Syracuse. He knows without a doubt that this is where he belongs.

While there is coaching turnover going on all around college football, fans across the country wonder what will happen to their recruits committed to their programs. 

One of the schools experiencing that now is Texas Tech. And while some of the Red Raider commitments are looking around at a few options, there is no need to worry about San Antonio (TX) O'Connor offensive guard Baylen Brown.

"Yes, I'm still solid to Texas Tech. I'm not going anywhere else and the coaching change didn't affect anything," Brown said. "That's where I'm going and that's where I am staying."

Surely that is good news for Red Raider fans worldwide, knowing that the 6-foot-5, 295-pound Brown is staying put. 

Brown said he looks forward to a new day with a new coach at the helm. And Brown spoke on the track record of the coach coming in to lead the Texas Tech program.

"Coach Kliff Kingsbury runs a powerful offense and they win a lot. He won at Houston and Texas A&M and I think he is good for the school," Brown said. "He's (Kingsbury) a young coach coming in and I like that. I'm going there."

The O-D Bowl marked Brown's final outing as a prep football player. He said that being a part of this all-star lineup was an "advantage" in that it was "like a college experience for us," based on the competition. 

He said that the Red Raiders coaches are recruiting him to play guard.
