Allan Brown: Big DT at Carthage

One of the toughest positions to fill with high level Division I talent is in between the trenches at defensive tackle. The Texas Longhorns will have a major void to fill at the position in 2008. Carthage High School in Texas is home to a massive space eating tackle that plays on both sides of the ball.

Allan Brown has hardly tapped into his potential, but Head Coach Mike Bickham thinks he has a bright future in front of him.

"He is actually an untapped potential right now. This is only his second year playing," Bickham said. "He is a big kid at 6-foot-5, 335 pounds. He has great burst off the ball at the strong tackle position. When you see his burst, you can see where he could possibly be in a couple of years. He is still learning the game and is very willing to learn. He is a real jovial kid. That is one of the things I really like about his personality."

Brown spends most of his time playing on the offense. He plays a little bit on defense as well. With his size, he would make a perfect run stopping defensive tackle on the next level. With another year left to develop, Brown could develop into one of the most prized defensive line prospects in the state of Texas for the class of 2008.

Brown is already hearing from a number of schools through the mail. A couple of schools that he has been hearing from include Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Houston and Baylor.
