Brown can do it all

Reedley always has playmakers and WR Teandre Brown (6-3, 210) is just the latest in a long line of talented prospects. caught up with the fleet wideout and he updated us on recruiting as well as what sets him apart from the rest of the wide receivers in the country.

"I think I can do everything out there," Brown told recently. "I can go long or work the middle. I have a lot of speed (4.3), but I'd rather catch a short pass and take it to the house instead of them throwing it long.

"To me, it's a lot easier to complete a five yard pass and then let me run with it than it is for me to beat the corner and then have the quarterback make a 50-yard throw that may or may not be completed. It just works better the other way."

Brown started last season at Jones County College in Mississippi and he posted solid numbers -- 25 receptions for over 400 yards and three touchdowns -- but he hopes the move west will help him get focused.

"I'm from the south and I just needed to get away from things down there and get a fresh start out here," Brown said. "Now it's all about football and school and just making sure I'm doing everything I need to be doing to get out in May."

On the recruiting front, Brown said he's already hearing from several schools including two Pac 10 programs that have piqued his interest.

"Cal and USC were both at our spring practices and they said they like me and what I have to offer," Brown said. "That was pretty cool to have two big-time programs like that with great offenses say they like what you bring to the table.

"Nevada is another school that is recruiting me and they have a good offense too."

Brown will graduate in May of 2009 and he'll have two years to play two following the 2008 season.
