Recruiting update with James Brown

James Brown (OL, Liberty, MS) - The 6' 5", 325 pound offensive line prospect out of Amite County just participated in a 69-14 thumping over rival, Wilkinson County, last Friday.

"It felt good to get rid of our losing streak," added James Brown. "We had lost three in a row before that game. We are trying to come back from it. Right now, we are 1-3 in District play, but we are 4-3 overall."

What caused the losing streak?

"I hate to single out any one player, but when our QB got hurt, things went South on us. We think we got things back in order, but we will not know for sure until we play a tougher team."

How is the '05 state weight lifting champ doing on the field?

"I am doing pretty good. I am staying on my blocks a little longer. I am also performing better on defense this year too."

Does James start both ways?

Yes, I always have."

Brown has the luxury of playing with one of the top '08 offensive line prospects in the state, Gabriel Jackson (OT/6' 5", 290).

"That is my work out buddy right there. We do everything together. Playing with him brings my game up another another because we are always competing against one another."

Has Brown had a chance to take in any college games this fall?

"No sir. I have been trying to get in some local games but I have not had a ride."

Does Brown still have a leader for his services?

"Yea, Ole Miss is still on top."

Why Ole Miss?

"I just feel comfortable with their coaches. I have gotten to know all of them pretty good. They rotate the phone around when we talk. I like that. My recruiting coach will call me one week, offensive line coach the next (week), then I will get a call from their head coach and even their offensive coordinator has called me a few times. It has given me a chance to really get to know all of them, not just my recruiting coach like the other schools do. They act like they need me the most. They always tell me that I am their number one guy. They want make me feel wanted."

Who would Brown like to see step up their recruitment?

"LSU. I have always liked LSU. I think they got mad when I did not show up for their (football) camp this summer. I do not know. It has not been the same since."
