WALDORF, Md. – Wise (Upper Marlboro, Md.) tight end Trevor Brown isn't from southern Maryland, but that didn't keep him from making the drive down from Upper Marlboro to Waldorf to take in Maryland's March 28 scrimmage at North Point High School. The 6-foot-5, 250 pounder, who holds an Old Dominion offer, has been a regular around the Terps' program this offseason, but this latest experience offered a different perspective then previous junior days and campus visits.
"It was a nice day out, so I just decided to come out and see the home team. I came up with one of my friends just to see the coaches and the players," Brown said. "I had a real good time watching the team in action. They were real aggressive and it was up-tempo. I enjoyed it."
Brown, who doubles as a defensive end, said he was paying close attention to Maryland's tight ends and defensive linemen. He said UMD, however, is recruiting him on offense, and Brown is hoping with the Terps in need of tight ends they'll give him a look.
"I was watching the tight ends and the offense in general. They run a lot of plays offensively," Brown said. "They can spread it out, and they can pull it in tight. They send the tight ends down the field sometimes, and I like that. I think I could fit in well, and I feel I can play there because I know they don't have a whole lot of tight ends on the roster. We'll see if they start recruiting me harder."
The Wise recruit said Maryland assistant Mike Locksley hasn't said much to him lately, but he indicated Brown is firmly on the radar. Brown was last at UMD for a Terps junior day and had a chance to speak to his recruiter more in-depth at that time.
"Coach Locks is saying to keep working, come to their camps and to keep my grades up," Brown said. "He likes how I play, and he likes how athletic I am, but they need to see me in camp. I'm planning to go up in June and hopefully I'll do well and get an offer.
"I can catch the ball and get down the seam, but I can block too and am physical at the line. So we'll see if Maryland gets on me."
Brown went on to comment on why he's pulling for a UMD verbal.
"It's close to home, it's Big Ten football and it's great academics," Brown said. "I want to major in business and they have a good program for that. And I like the coaches; they're all really nice and easy to talk to. I had a real good time at the junior day talking to them and just being around the program."
Besides Maryland and Old Dominion, Brown is hearing from NC State, Kentucky, Temple and Hampton. He has a visit to Hampton scheduled for April 12 and a Temple trip shortly after that. Brown will also return to College Park, Md., for the spring game April 11.
"I just went to ODU and that was nice. I saw my former teammate down there, Zach Pascal, and it was cool to catch up with him. The coaches are real cool too," Brown said. "Next I'm looking forward to going to Maryland's spring game. It should be pretty fun."
