Keith Browner, the defensive end from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey, had a very good showing at the recent Los Angeles Scout.com Combine.

He looked particularly good in the one-on-one drills, being too quick off the ball for most of the offensive linemen to stay with him. Browner has good foot speed, and is very long, with an upper body that looks a bit lean for his frame and could easily fill out.

At the combine, he measured at 6-4 ¾, weighed 222 pounds, and ran a 4.8 40, which is good for a defensive end.

"I thought I could have done better running," Browner said, "But I liked how I did in the drills."

Browner said he's received scholarship offers from six schools – Baylor, Cal, Oregon, ASU, Arizona and UCLA. "Those are probably my favorites, since they've offered me," Browner said. "My top school right now is Cal. For me, academics are important and Cal has a high graduation rate. 96% of their players graduate, and most of their players are successful after their football careers at Cal."

When asked which school might be running second for him, Browner said, "I would have to say UCLA. I like them a lot, too. I like them as well because of the education."

Browner is the son of former USC great Keith Browner, so there are strong connections to the Trojan program. "Yeah, USC has a big pull for me. If they offered, it would make it a very tough decision for me. It would be very tough."

USC, according to Browner, isn't close to offering him a scholarship, though. "They just tell me to keep on going, keep working hard and they'll keep in contact," he said.

Browner indicated before that he had a 2.9 GPA and scored a 1440 on the new SAT, which would translate to a 960 on the old SAT.
