Brown now on Husky radar

It's no secret that Washington is looking to bolster the interior of their defensive line and Compton (Ca.) DT Justin Brown is a player whose stock has risen significantly over the past few weeks. Dawgman.com caught up with the gifted defensive tackle, who had an outstanding senior season, to get the latest on his recruiting including the call he got from the Husky coaches recently...

"I talked to coach (Nick) Holt today actually," Brown told Dawgman.com on Wednesday afternoon. "He said they really like me a lot and that I was a guy they wanted to get up there on a trip, so we're talking about me going up there sometime this month.

"Coach (Steve) Sarkisian has a good reputation down here as a coach and a recruiter and coach Holt was recruiting me for USC, so now that he's up at Washington, he really wants me to come up and check things out."

Brown recently got offered by Colorado and New Mexico and he claims offers from Arizona State, Washington State, New Mexico State, Idaho and Hawaii along with several D-1AA schools.

"I'm visiting Colorado on the 16th and I'll be at Idaho State on the 23rd," Brown said. "The visit on the 30th is coming down to Washington and ASU and it all depends on how things go on who I take that visit with.

"With ASU offering me and U-Dub not offering me, that will be a consideration on who I visit, but I'm very interested in Washington."

Brown currently tips the scales at 272 pounts on on his 6-1.5 frame and he said he's a player that will do anything necessary to get the job done.

"All of the schools recruiting me like me as a three (technique)," Brown said. "I'm good at rushing the quarterback, but I can stuff the run well."

"Justin is the best defensive lineman in the Moore League and one of the best DL prospects in the state," Compton head coach Calvin Bryant told Scout.com's Brandon Huffman last month. "Justin's intensity and get-off inside the trenches allows him to standout among fellow linemen. He does well at plugging gaps and making tackles in the backfield. He possesses good strength and size to defeat opposing linemen."

Brown finished the 2008 season with 69 tackles, four sacks and an interception and was named First Team All-League on both sides of the ball.
