Drew Brown, PK, 5-foot-10 and 160-pounds, Southlake (Texas) Carroll
Brown was a name that popped up his junior year of high school, making an unofficial visit in September of 2012, and returned again for the kicking academy the summer before his senior year. Brown was impressive enough during the academy to pick up an offer. The Huskers will welcome a kicker that, according to Carroll High School head coach Hal Wasson, "In a game situation I know that I would feel just fine with Brown kicking up to a 50 yard field goal." The Huskers are looking for someone to fill the hole left by Pat Smith and it should be a spirited competition between Brown and Mauro Bondi for the kicking duties.
It was the pursuit of a dream. Growing up, Drew saw big brother Kris, in the heyday of Nebraska football. Drew wants to lead the Huskers back there and it's quite possible that when Drew's career is over we will be talking about another four year letter winner.
