Brown shows his ballhawking abilities

One of the top ballhawks in the California JUCO ranks this past season was Grossmont CB Kweishi Brown (6-0, 185). After an outstanding freshman season, the gifted cover-corner has seen recruiting pick up and he spoke with JCFootball.com recently about where things stand...

"Right now, I don't have any offers, but I have a lot of schools looking at me," Brown told JCFootball.com. "My coaches said that USC, Washington, Nevada, Illinois, Memphis and Utah have all called and asked them about me and the school I've spoken to is Kansas, so things have been picking up."

As a freshman in 2012, Brown totaled 28 tackles, two tackles-for-loss and led the team with eight passes defensed and seven interceptions from his corner spot and he said he likes playing press, but he feels most comfortable in zone.

"I'm probably best at playing zone just because I can read routes and I make breaks on the ball," Brown said. "I have good ball-skills, that's something I've always been able to do -- I led my high school team in picks as a senior -- so it's a big part of my game.

"I like playing press though too and this offseason I've been working on my footwork and I want to be quicker, so that's been a focus for me."

As a prep at Vahalla (San Diego, Ca.) High School, Brown only played one season of varsity football, so he didn't get a lot of attention.

"I took two years off and just worked," Brown said. "I wasn't going to play football anymore, but eventually, I started to miss it a lot and I decided coming here to Grossmont, with their staff here and the talent they have, to see if I could make something of a football career and also get my degree."

Brown is on pace to graduate in May of 2014 and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
