Recruiting: Brown Wants To Play Right Away

Talk about a dynamo, that's Antioch, Tenn., running back Preston Brown. Brown said following in his hero's footsteps (Barry Sanders) is just part of the reason he is sold on Oklahoma State.

"He is my favorite and they told me I could wear number 20 (Sanders' pro jersey number)," said Brown. "I just loved the campus, the teachers, the coaches, and they told me if I worked I could play as a freshman. It may be at running back, or because they look at me as an athlete, it may be somewhere else. I just love that and the atmosphere."

Brown is rock solid on his commitment, but he has not qualified.

"My grades are really good and I've pushed to make them better and I take the test again February 11," said Brown. "I just need to do a little better and I'll be okay."

Brown also informed us that his fullback at Antioch that helped him gain 1,350 yards last season despite missing three games with injury will be heading to OSU too.

"Trey Cole is 6-2, 250 pounds and runs a 40 in the high 4.6 range," Brown said in describing his teammate. "He is going to sign with Georgia Military in case he doesn't make his test score."

So there could be two from Antioch, but Brown is fired up and ready.
