Tommy Brown (Brandon Huffman)

Huskies Right In The Mix For Brown

2018 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Ca.) OL Tommy Brown didn't get an offer from the Huskies when he was on Montlake this past weekend, but he hopes one could be in the offing after talking to new offensive line coach Scott Huff...

"I had a great trip to Washington," Brown told "It was beautiful. The weather was on the colder side which is paradise for me as a big guy, the cherry blossoms were blooming which was breath-taking, the facilities were very impressive for a Pac12 school and coach Huff seemed to be a really cool coach who knows when to have a good time and knows when to be serious and coach.

"(Chris) Petersen was different from most coaches who play it like a business, but coach Petersen seemed honest and actually wants what's best for the recruit even if that's not Washington."

So how was Petersen different?

"Of course recruiting is a business," Brown acknowledged. "Simply it's coaches trying to get the best players any way they can, so the way most coaches do it is say anything that will get the player to come to their school, even if it's not true, but with coach Petersen, he gives you the talk about the OKG (Our Kinda Guy) which he expands on, what he's looking for in a recruit and what it will be like as a u-Dub football player and he's honest about it, which shows his character and what I would be getting in a head coach if went to U-Dub."

Brown had been hoping for an offer from the Dawgs when he was on campus, but said he's still encouraged one could be on the way, but he knows it's all on him.

"They didn't offer, but coach Huff explained that he wants to see me practice in person to seal the deal on an offer, so I'm confident that once coach comes to a spring ball practice that they will offer," Brown said confidently.

As far as the practices he was able to view, he said the pace of practice was what really stood out.

"I did i enjoyed the up tempo in the practice and I liked seeing the way coach Huff interacts and coaches with the players," Brown noted. "I actually was able to go into the meeting (Friday night) when they were going over film from the practice before and it was pretty cool getting to see how coach Huff is able to have fun with his kids and then get serious to teach them and correct them which I think is very important as a line coach."

Brown, a four-star offensive line prospect, has been one of the fastest risers this offseason with offers rolling in from schools across the country including Arizona StateAuburnCaliforniaLouisvilleFloridaUCLA and Michigan among others, but he said he's focused on track and his spring practices, so he hasn't given much thought to which camps he'd like to hit this spring and summer.

"We haven't planned out my summer yet, but I could definitely get back up to Washington if they don't offer in May," Brown said. 

Brown also noted he plans to take all of his official visits and doesn't plan to make a decision before the end of his senior season.

We'll have more on Brown in the near future and we will update news on him as it happens.
