The Lonestar state is a virtual breeding ground for star players and Arlington Bowie High School seemingly has a star player every year that programs from around the country recruit.
This year, that star player is Jarrett Brown, a 6-foot-4 Defensive End that weighs in at 237 lbs. and runs a 4.7 forty. A;though late to the game, New Head Coach Bill Snyder and his staff have worked the phone lines and burned the midnight oil selecting those players that would be a good fit at Kansas State and then making up ground on them.
This weekend, Kansas State will host Jarrett Brown for his official visit and prior to his visit, KStateFans caught up with him to get his pre-visit thoughts on K-State and recruiting in general.
- Current recruiting is "Going good. A lot of interest right now."
- Brown's two leaders are KState and Tennessee. But UT has yet to offer and, according to Brown "I haven't scheduled my visit there yet."
- Coach Rodgers and JBC have had in-house already with Brown, talking DE and early playing time available along the defensive front.
- Early playing time is a key with Brown
- Academics, academics, academics. Jarrett indicated that his parents are very interested and concerned about his education. He would like to major in business, and support from the football program to help him get a degree is a high priority.
- In talking opportunity at Kansas State, Jarrett offered: "I want to help build up the new program. If Coach Snyder would ask me to come there, I could help him do that."
- I asked one thing in particular he's looking for. Answer? Good Food! "I love to eat!" I don't think he'll have any problems at the training table under LHCBS and staff. Coming in at 6'4" / 237, he'll want to avail himself of all the food he can handle.
- Long time, BIG fan of the Big XII. Really wants to play here and sees the Big XII as a better conference than the SEC (Tennessee, take note...).
- 3 things Jarrett Brown wants you to know: "I work hard. I bring a good attitude. I want success in the classroom and on the field."
