Brown Enjoys Texas Visit

Cibolo Steele running back Malcolm Brown is a wanted man -- wanted by all of the region's top programs with top-flight national programs to follow in the coming weeks and months. On Monday, the Texas Longhorns received a visit from the talented back.

The Texas Longhorns played host to one of the top junior running backs in the country on Monday. Cibolo Steele's Malcolm Brown, accompanied by his mother and father, made a third unofficial visit to the 40 Acres yesterday this time with more of a focus on spending one-on-one time with the Longhorns coaching staff.

Brown, who rushed for 1,351 yards and 17 touchdowns in eight games, said the unofficial visit went well as expected.

"It went real well," said the 6-0, 213-pound running back. "The campus was nice and the coaches treated us well. This trip wasn't really about learning about anything new, but it was about how I could fit into the system and program."

The San Antonio area rising star spoke at length with members of the Texas staff on Monday starting with secondary coach Duane Akina and running backs coach Major Applewhite before ending with head coach Mack Brown.

"First, I met up with Coach Akina and Coach Applewhite. Coach Akina showed us around the campus, we came back and met up with Coach Applewhite again. We also met Coach Rucker and then went up to Coach Brown's office. He repeated a lot of what the other coaches had told us, how I would fit into their system and how much they liked me. He talked about how I could fit in, a lot about the campus and how much they want me," Brown said.

As for the programs that he has tripped to this summer and indicated that they will offer shortly, the list is growing. "I have been to UT, TCU and A&M this summer. UT, OU and TCU have told me they will offer sometime. I went to TCU on Friday before going to UT on Monday," Brown said.

The Horned Frogs also impressed the powerful, downhill back.

"TCU was a nice campus. All of the campuses are nice. Their coaches were nice and it went well. All of the coaches have treated me well and tell me how much they want me." Brown said.

Brown said he doesn't have a favorite at this point in the process. He is open to all programs.

In late January, Burnt Orange Beat visited Cibolo Steele High to check out the talented back. Head coach Mike Jinks said at the time he not only has a very talented runner, but a special person in his program.

"For the first six or seven games of the year, you would be hard pressed to find anybody better in the state. The thing that makes Malcolm special is that we have an unbelievable person and leader. I call him my Tim Duncan. The way he carries himself is his true strength. Whatever he does, wherever he ends up, he is going to be special," Jinks said.
