Brown targets big senior year

Dorian Brown, one of the top senior running backs in Colorado this year, is talking with more schools, but has he gotten any more offers? Get Inside for more.

Dorian Brown has had a relatively quiet summer recruiting-wise.

The No. 72 running back in the country from Loveland, Colo., hopes to liven up with the upcoming start of his senior season.

"I want to get over 2000 yards — want to go big my senior year," said Brown, who had about 1900 yards last season.

The three-star recruit hopes that putting up Chris Johnson size numbers will come with the added benefit of more scholarship offers.

Currently, Brown (6-1, 230) just has offers from instate schools Colorado and Colorado State. He has, however, been talking to Cal, Arizona State, Oregon, Kansas State and Utah throughout the summer.

Brown isn't just focused on individual goals. After going 0-10 last year, Brown and his Thompson Valley High School teammates have winning a game as their top concern.

"I want that to happen," Brown said.

To accomplish that goal he said he'll need to just do what he does, and hope that all of his teammates step up and play a level above their abilities.

The team, which opens practice on Aug. 16 and kicks off the season Sept. 3, took a step in the right direction when they attended the Wyoming camp as a group.

"We did pretty good. I'm impressed with how our team performed," said Brown, whose only complaint about the camp was some poor weather in Laramie.

The Cowboys camp was the only one Brown attended this summer. He also made additional campus visits to Colorado and Colorado State.

Brown says his college decision right now is wide open, and he's waiting to see what other offers come his way before he makes any major decisions, including where to take his official visits.

Though multiple current and future Pac-10 schools are recruiting him, Brown said he doesn't necessarily favor that conference.

"It'd be cool to play USC and all those other schools, but there's not much of a difference to me," Brown said. "I'm not sure. I'm just trying to find a place that I love and want to spend the next four years. It's going to be a process to figure out."
