Recently, ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with a talented 2014 multi-sport athlete, Torrence Brown 6’5” 232 Tuscaloosa (AL) Academy, who is being recruited by several SEC schools in football, including Missouri.
Brown plays point guard for his high school basketball team, and he’s being recruited as an athlete in football. He projects at TE, or DE/ OLB. He does not have a position preference.
“It really doesn’t matter to me,” said Brown. “(I’ll play) where the coach wants me to play.”
Brown reports offers from Arizona State, Arkansas State, Connecticut, Jacksonville State, Memphis, Middle Tennessee State, North Carolina State, South Alabama, Southern Miss, Troy, and Tulane. He’s also being recruited by Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt, among others, in addition to Missouri.
“Missouri wants to see me in the fall during the season when I’m in pads,” explained Brown. “Because of my knee injury, I played in just three games last year.”
Brown has foregone playing basketball this past month to concentrate on football and he has attended a number of football camps, including camps at Alabama, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Vanderbilt.
“They all want to see me in pads,” said Brown, referring to all of the SEC schools that are recruiting him.
He recently ran a 4.67-second forty at a Vanderbilt camp. He reports a personal best of 4.58 seconds in the forty-yard dash, a 33” vertical, and a 4.19-second 5-10-5 shuttle, to go along with a maximum in the bench press of 305 pounds.
Brown is not in a big hurry to choose a school. He’s waiting to see who comes with the offers. He does not currently have a list of favorites. He said that it will likely be after the season before he makes a decision.
