Through the first two games of his senior season, Dade City (Fla.) Pasco offensive lineman Mylon Brown has been a force and coaches are starting to take notice. He's still sitting on the one offer he received earlier this summer but he's confident more are on the way.
At 6-5 and 290 pounds, Brown has a college-ready build and the coaches from Vanderbilt thought highly enough of him over the summer to extend an offer.
Through two games Brown had recorded 3.5 sacks on defense and said he is grading out well on the offensive line. As productive as he's been on defense, he believes he projects as an offensive tackle at the collegiate level. The senior lineman talked about the schools showing him the most interest thus far.
"I've been hearing a lot from Vanderbilt, Purdue, South Florida, UCLA and Florida International," Brown told PackPride.com in a recent interview. "I think FIU is going to offer me soon and USF should, too. I don't know who else might be close."
The NC State coaching staff had a chance to evaluate Brown up close over the summer so what has the Pack’s interest level been of late?
"I had been hearing from NC State over the summer. I went to their football camp. I really liked the atmosphere and the coaches were very energetic, so I really like the staff. I was impressed by the weight room, too. That was nice.”
Brown said he would be interested in making a return trip to Raleigh if the Wolfpack raises their interest level. For now, he’s looking forward to a couple of pending visits.
"I have an official visit to Vanderbilt set up for November 8, and I think I'm about to take an official to South Florida pretty soon here. I'll take one to NC State if I start hearing from them again soon.”
"I'd like to make my decision by late November to early December sometime."
Brown has been rated a two-star prospect and the No. 120 offensive tackle in the nation by Scout.com.
