Brown Can Play A Lot of Positions

When college coaching staffs evaluate Rockingham (N.C.) Richmond Senior recruits Norman Whitley and Tavares Brown they are discovering another impressive prospect: Tim Brown – a 6-foot-2, 195-pound jumbo athlete.

"N.C. State is showing me a lot of interest," said Brown. "Maryland, Duke, Wake Forest, and a whole bunch of other schools are recruiting me."

What is attractive about Brown is the vast amount of position he could play at the next level. Most schools want him for linebacker, but Brown has the potential to also play defensive end, safety, tight end, and even wide receiver in college.

For Richmond Senior, Brown played linebacker last season where he recorded 95 tackles (59 solo), two interceptions, two sacks, and forced a fumble. To fill needs on offense, Brown will also play wide receiver this upcoming season in addition his linebacking duties.

Recently, Brown proved his athletic ability during the Shrine Bowl Combine. Brown easily produced one of the days best performances including a 4.64-second 40-yard dash, a 4.28-second 20-yard shuttle, a 32.8-inch vertical jump and rep'd 185 pounds 17 times.

Brown's off-season schedule has prevented him from making any unofficial visits. Regardless, he currently favors two schools.

"I like Georgia and N.C. State," said Brown. "I like Georgia because it's in Atlanta and I like Atlanta. State I like the coaches a lot."

Brown figures to spend the majority of his summer attending college camps, but has yet to sit down and mapped out a schedule.
