New Offer For Brown

2017 Tyler OT Marvis Brown (6-5, 300) informed that he has received his fifth offer...

"Just got offered by UAB," an excited Brown told "They said they like the way I play and my off-the-field character."

The offer from the Blazers joins the four Brown already had from the likes of North TexasArkansas StateCharlotte and Prairie View A&M.

As far as visits, Brown has yet to take any, but said he's working on setting one up for the first or second weekend of December with UAB.

As a prep at Little Cypress-Mauriceville in Orange, Texas, he was a standout on the gridiron and he signed with Texas Southern and was there for the 2015 season, but after the staff there was fired, he began to re-think his options.

"I started there as a freshman and I figured that would be where I play for four years, but when the staff got let go, I just didn't want to stay," Brown said back in the summer. "I just felt like I needed to get a fresh start and play for a school that I felt comfortable at, so Tyler was the school I chose because they have some amazing coaches and talent here and with the amount of guys they get moved on, something like 90 D-1 players over the past five or seven years, that just speaks to how good the program is.

"They also have a powerful offense, it scores like 60 to 70 points per game, and I wanted to be part of something like that."

As far as what he does best on the football field, it comes down to one thing -- keeping his quarterback's jersey clean.

"I have good awareness of where the quarterback is and I have good footwork, so I can handle pass-rushers pretty well," Brown said. "This offseason, I have been working on being more explosive and also working on my hips and my strength in my hips."

Brown is set to finish up his academic work in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
