Brown impressed by future Tigers

MYRTLE BEACH - Clemson is hosting several commits and prospects next weekend, including a safety from Centre, Ala.

Desmond Brown gets a head start on the official weekend, and gets to spend time with several other Clemson commits this week at the O-D All American Bowl in Myrtle Beach.

"It's the best experience I could ever make, this O-D Bowl game. It's the best thing that's ever happened to me," he said. "Getting to play with these guys and build some camaraderie. I get to see who I'm playing, what kind of guy they are, what type of player they are.

"We get to become friends and get closer."

Brown believes the East has an advantage over the West with the tight-knit group that includes Clemson commits Bashaud Breeland, Darius Robinson and Corey Crawford on the East defense.

"We're keeping that whole defense crunk. I would say the DBs are the crunkest part," Brown said. "I don't want to take anything away from the linebackers or the d-line, but the DBs; we're holding our part down. With the Clemson guys (Breeland and Robinson), it only gets better."

The other Clemson commits at defensive back have impressed him the most this week.

"Darius and Breeland have really impressed me. Not because they're Clemson guys, but I've been watching their swagger…they've impressed me with their play and style of play too," Brown said.

Playing safety alongside Breeland, Brown enjoys the move after playing cornerback in high school. In the system they're running, the safety positions are interchangeable. Brown believes that'll help them both when they get to Clemson.

Clemson's getting the three-star prospect who is ranked as the No. 65 safety in the class of 2010. Top Stories
