UA Game: Malcom Brown

Texas commitment Malcom Brown said he was enjoying his time at the UnderArmour All-American Game.

"It's been great … I'm just getting reps and going hard," Brown said. "I'm trying to show them what I'm all about. No matter who I'm with, I'm going to give it my all. I'm trying to put all my talent out there for God. That's what he'd want me to do, and that's what I'm going to do."

So what is Brown about? Most observers at the UnderArmour practices have fingered the big defensive tackle's effort level.

"I always go to the whistle, and that's what I'm going to do," Brown said. "I guess that's just me now. It's not about this play (being bigger) than that play. It's just every play, every down."

While some players put out that effort to try and improve their ranking, Brown said that wasn't a factor for him.

"I'm not really worried about that," Brown said. "I know I'm really good, but I don't think about that. I would like to prove to myself that I'm the best, but I'm just going to come out and play hard. If I'm better than (the other guy), then I'm better than them. Rankings and that kind of stuff doesn't mean anything to me."

What does mean something to Brown is winning, a trait he shares with the nine other Longhorn commitments in Orlando.

"It's so fun," Brown said. "We're just getting our bond stronger before we go to Texas. And I'm meeting new players, other great players."

Brown's best friend in the class isn't in attendance, though Brown said he was looking forward to continuing his career with Timothy Cole once he goes to Austin.

"That was a big deal right there," Brown said. "We always talk about that. We're going to be roommates and everything there and we're going to go up and keep our (friendship) going."

Brown said he loved Texas and has stayed solid from the moment he committed.

"They have some great coaches, and coaches who made me feel like I was at home," Brown said. "They stayed honest with me through the whole process of them recruiting me. (I liked) the players there, and the academics were just great."

Brown said he weighed about 290 pounds, and said that the Longhorn coaches have talked with him about playing tight end in goal line sets.

"I'm looking forward to that, but I'm really looking forward to getting coached by Coach [Bo] Davis," Brown said. "Go TGOD!"
