Bryce Brown High on the Cats

When you are one of the top in-state players in your state, everyone follows your every move. When you are one of the Elite players in the nation- the attention is even greater and following an official visit...fans everywhere want to know how your trip went. Bryce Brown is such a prospect and he just returned from Kansas State. Want to know how his trip went?

Still standing by a verbal commitment to attend the University of Miami, Bryce Brown is also making the rounds of other schools for a look-see on what they might have to offer. Saturday, that visit was to Kansas State.

After watching Kansas State fall to No. 6 Oklahoma Saturday in Bramlage Coliseum, Bryce Brown said of the atmosphere, "I enjoyed it It's a nice atmosphere, but I expected that. It's definitely a place that I'm going to consider."

But so is Miami, where the 6-foot-0, 215-pound Wichita East running back is verbally committed to, and so are Oregon and Tennessee, plus probably others.

"I wouldn't say its wide open," Brown said of his recruitment after the game. "There are still a few schools I want to talk to."

While the initial thought was to attend Miami where his brother, Arthur, signed last year as a linebacker, the younger Brown is now saying, "The more and more I travel, the more I appreciate being home. It's my home. I love Kansas."

Still, as recently as Friday he was talking to Tennessee via a telephone call as he headed into K-State to listen to what coach Bill Snyder and his new staff had to say.

"The most important thing right now is getting a feel from the offensive coaches and start building a relationship," Brown said. "I'm looking for a comfortable fit."

In four years at Wichita East, Brown rushed for a City League record 6,809 yards, which included 1,873 yards this past season. He's been clocked at 4.32 seconds in the 40-yard dash, and was named the co-MVP of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl after netting 146 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns.

Brown entered the arena 25 minutes before tip-off with Snyder and immediately made his way to the seats at center-court where he was greeted by KSU President Jon Wefald. He later returned to the seats to join other recruits.
