DeAundre Brown: 2008 WR has a leader

With the Texas Longhorns' 2007 recruiting class almost wrapped up, their coaches and staff will be watching closely to see which juniors they want to target for next year's class. Seguin wide receiver DeAundre Brown is definitely one prospect that they should keep their eyes on. He is drawing interest from several schools and already has an early leader.

Oklahoma has shown DeAundre Brown the most attention, and they are his overall favorite. What have the Sooners done to separate themselves from the competition?

"They invited me down there and talked to me about how they do their offense and everything. They showed me around, let me watch scrimmage games, and invited me to scrimmage games. They just gave me a good teaching and talk about their team. They have showed more interest and love for me. They have posted things on the internet talking about recruiting me," Brown said.

The 6'0, 181 pound Brown runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and his bench max is 305 pounds. In his sophomore season at Seguin, Brown caught 38 passes for 540 yards and a total of six touchdowns. He earned Sophomore of the Year honors and was named 1st team all-district. He also was named one of the top eight underclassmen wide receivers in the state of Texas.

Brown is interested in several programs other than Oklahoma. A few of these include Texas A&M, Iowa, TCU and Texas. In addition to these schools, Brown is also hearing from LSU, Wisconsin, Washington and New Mexico.

Brown believes that he has the ability and skills to be a successful college receiver.

"My strengths are route running, breaking down a defense's coverage, learning how to catch, and running after the catch," Brown said.
