IT'S ONE OF the hardest things to do in recruiting -- to find elite cornerbacks. It gets even harder…
2012 CLASS: Cougs add Gem State run stopper
Brown,a 6-3, 265-pounder out of Mountain View High, said he will be a big, run-stopping defensive end at Washington State. "They liked that I was big and fast and knew the game well," said Brown. "…That's my specialty, run stopping and playing to the sideline." BROWN WAS A two-time All-State selection (5A) for his work on the defensive line at Mountain View. He had accepted a preferred walk-on opportunity at Boise State before WSU came along. "Coach Choate recruited me a little at Boise State," said Brown. "…I went on a (official) visit to Washington State on the 18th- 20th. "I was set on going to Boise State before, just as a walk-on, I was excited but it was nothing too special. I didn't think anyone would call this late -- and I'm looking forward to proving they made the right choice." BROWN WILL ARRIVE at Washington State in June, as is expected the vast majority of WSU's 2012 class, to begin summer school and participate in voluntary summer workouts. "They said if I come in and bust my ass, work hard and show them I can play, there's a good chance I could get early playing time this year," said Brown. Brown, who said he signed with WSU this past week, racked up 75 tackles and four sacks his senior season. Over his prep career, he blocked 12 kicks. Click here for highlight reels.
