Wide receiver Lamark Brown watched K-State practice first-hand last weekend on his official visit. The Hazelwood, Mo. prospect believes he can provide a boost to the passing game next fall.
At 6-3, 220-pounds Brown provides quarterbacks with the type of big target they love to see down the field. But he also has speed to go along with that size.
"Most people see me or they hear about my size and they assume that I'm not as fast as maybe some other guys," said Brown. "But I can run. I feel like I can get downfield as well as anybody, and I'll outrun people in the open field.
"My goal next year is just to make Josh Freeman's job a little easier. I think I can provide him with another target out there. They have an exciting offense, and I'm looking forward to being a part of it."
Brown seemed to enjoy every aspect of his trip to Manhattan.
"It was a good trip," he said. "It was about what I expected, which is good. We all went to some classes with the players, and then we picked out the classes that we want to take. We chose our majors too. I told the coaches that I want to do kinesiology. It seems like it will be interesting."
He noted that the Wildcats had not started preparing for Rutgers yet, but that would begin this week. Brown's host for the weekend was Bryan Baldwin, a fellow Missouri native. He had a chance to talk to all the coaches, including Coach Latimore, who was responsible for recruiting Brown.
"It was good seeing all these people that I had been talking to for a while. I'm going to be there, so it gives me a lot to look forward to. I talked to Josh Freeman too. He seems excited about the guys that are coming in. I think we're going to work well together next year."
