Noles Looking At NC TE/DE

After this upcoming season ends, Florida State will be left with only two scholarship tight ends on the roster in Senior <b>Donnie Carter</b> and <b>Matt Henshaw</b>. Also throw in the fact that the Noles didn't sign a tight end prospect in the previous two recruiting classes which makes signing at least two tight ends for the Class of 2005 a must. One of the solutions to the problem might be tight end <b>Everette Brown</b> of Wilson (NC) Beddingfield.

"Florida State tight end coach (Lilly) called my coach and it sounds like they have a lot of interest," Brown, who checks in at 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, said. "Florida State has a winning tradition and I like what I see from them on TV."

Brown is definitely worthy of his early hype with scholarship offers from Duke, Tennessee, North Carolina, Penn State and Wake Forest. What's the secret to his success?

"I pursue the ball on every play," he said. "I have a nose for the football and I have the ability to read offenses. While playing tight end, I have the ability to read defenses."

Brown is also an outstanding defensive end prospect that's being recruited by several programs for the defensive side of the ball.

"Duke and Penn State are recruiting me as a defensive end," he said. "I haven't decided what side of the ball I would like to play in college."

Before making a decision on what school to attend, Brown would like to visit North Carolina, Florida State and Tennessee. He has left the door open for a possible early commitment.

As a junior, Brown had 110 tackles and eight sacks on defense along with twenty-four catches for 400 yards on offense.

He is on track to qualify academically with a 3.3 grade point average.
