2018 DE Tahj Brown (Steve Robertson / SCOUT)

Physical 3-Star Defender Tahj Brown Talks Texas Longhorns Camp Visit

Tahj Brown, a three-star linebacker/defensive end from Louisiana, tells Scout about his camp experience at Texas and more.

Donaldsonville (La.) 2018 three-star linebacker/defensive end Tahj Brown camped Tuesday night at Texas as the Longhorns hosted numerous prospects for some in-person instruction and evaluation.

Brown, who has primarily played linebacker so far in his high school career, measured an impressive 6-foot-3, 256 pounds in March at The Opening New Orleans and told Scout that schools now want him as a defensive end at the next level.

Twenty-one FBS schools have already offered Brown, who holds Power Five conference offers from KansasKansas StateMississippi StateNC State, and Wake Forest. He also has offers from HoustonMemphisLouisiana Tech, and SMU, among others.


"The camp went well," Brown said of his experience Tuesday night in Austin. "I think I did a really good job. Coach (Tom) Herman and (defensive line) coach (Oscar) Giles really loved me.

"They worked me at defensive end and they coached as if I was already there. I worked with the D-line coaches the entire camp."

Brown has good size for a player who will move from linebacker to defensive end at the next level. He's physical and strong and already adept as a run-stopper He will need to learn how to rush the passer from the edge with a hand on the ground after playing in the middle of the defense in the past, but that should come with time.

At his inside linebacker spot in 2016, Brown posted huge numbers as he recored 120 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, five sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and one kick block.

After the camp with Texas, Brown said he has a good feeling about where thing stand with the Longhorn coaching staff.

"I believe the offer could come really soon," he said. "We talked about it a lot."

Next up for Brown will be two more P5 camp visits later this summer.

"I will be visiting Kansas and Mississippi State before the summer lets out," he said.
