Scouting Report - June 11, 2002: (Scott Kennedy * BorderWars)
"My Dr. said I should grow about 3 or 4 more inches," said Brown with a laugh after this reporter made what had to be the hundredth comment to him about his shoe size. "I play tight end and defensive end. I guess I like tight end a little bit better; I think that's how most colleges are recruiting me."
Brown's head coach Patrick Fane expects big things from his team and his even bigger TE/DE. "We probably should have done a better job of getting him the ball last year," said Coach Fane. "We plan to get him more touches this year. He's a very good athlete, and he'll line up at defensive end for us as well."
The quiet Brown isn't talking too much about colleges at this point but did list Miami, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida, and Florida State as his early favorites at this point. "I'm also hearing a lot from Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina, and North Carolina State. It doesn't really matter to me right now if I stay in state or go out of state."
While he may not talk to much about college at this point, Brown is certain to be a hot commodity this fall.
