Co-Lin defensive tackle Tre Brown talks about his season.

Mississippi State verbal commitment Tre Brown recently wrapped up the 2015 regular season at Copiah-Lincoln Community College. The Wolfpack had a run as the nation's #1, but ended up out of the NJCAA playoffs.

Brown and Co-Lin finished the season 7-2. Due to a tie breaker that did not fall their way, the Wolfpack were not able to chase a championship.

"I feel like we had a good year overall," Brown said. "We won some big games and I thought we had a great team. We may end up in a bowl game. We're just waiting to hear about all of that. I think we will know something once the playoffs are over."

The Ackerman, Mississippi native break through as freshman and saw action in the defensive line rotation as a reserve. For the 2015 campaign. Brown saw his name move up the depth chart to starter.

"I was a lot better this year than I was last year," Brown shared. "I know there are some things that I have to do better, but I feel like I improved this year. I was pretty proud of how I played."

Mississippi State offered Brown the chance to be a Bulldog. The three star standout accepted their offer this summer before the season began. Now firmly committed, Brown talks with the Mississippi State coaching staff regularly.

"I talk with Coach (David) Turner and Coach (Tony) Hughes once or twice a week," Brown explained. "I have known Coach Turner since like my tenth grade year and we have a great relationship. I have really known him a long time, so I know what he is like.

"Coach Hughes is just a funny coach who always has something good to say. I enjoy talking with him too."

While some other programs have inquired with the staff at Co-Lin about Brown, the Bulldogs have had very little to worry about when it has come to the recruitment of this talented defensive tackle.

"I have been to just about all of the Mississippi State home games," Brown said. "I plan on going to the games with Alabama and Ole Miss too. I am not sure when my official visit will be, but I know that they are going to set that up too.

"I am solid with Mississippi State and I am ready to get up there and get to work with the team."

The Bulldogs have high hopes for the remainder of the 2015 season. Four crucial SEC contests remain on the schedule. Brown is optimistic about his future team's chances this November.

"I think they have a good chance to win most of these games left on the schedule," Brown said. "They might even win out. I feel like they have a great team and that the defense is really playing good. I'm ready to see how they do."

Brown enrolled at Co-Lin after a strong prep career at Ackerman High School, which became Choctaw County High. With his two seasons in Wesson now complete, Brown is ready to realize his dream of playing football in the Southeastern Conference.

"As far as I know, I am still on pace to get out in December," Brown said. "I have enjoyed playing at Co-Lin and I will miss the coaches and players here. I am ready to get up to Mississippi State in January and see what I can do to help the team up there."
