Linebacker U's Newest Member

Check out these two pictures of <b>Dontey Brown</b>, a 6'3", 252-pound linebacker from the McKeesport Area High in the Pittsburgh area, who one month ago pledged to become the newest member of Linebacker U.

Name: Dontey Brown
Position: LB
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 252 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.7
School: McKeesport Area HS, McKeesport, PA


When LionNews interviewed McKeesport head coach George Smith early last month, he chose one word to describe his star player.

"Legit," Smith said. "He can play either down or up. He can play d-line, he can play linebacker, he can cover kickoffs, he does everything. He makes every tackle. He's just a big, hard-working, blue-collar type linebacker. He's a great kid."

Has anyone been calling him since his commitment to Penn State?

"West Virginia, N.C. State and Michigan", Dontey said. "I just told them 'thanks for calling'. I'll talk to them, but that's about it."

He's still committed to Penn State and believes he will make a return trip to Happy Valley next Wednesday (June 18) with A.Q. Shipley and possibly some other top recruits from the Pittsburgh area.

Dontey also frequently corresponds via email with fellow Penn State commitments Greg Harrison and Wyatt Bowman.
