Broadrick Brown: Big Summer Plans

The Texas Longhorns would love nothing more than to add another defensive tackle commit to their 2009 recruiting class. Jamarkus McFarland and Derek Johnson remain the top targets, but Mack Brown and company will be hosting another defensive tackle in mid-June.
The 6-foot-1, 265-pound Broadrick Brown from Galveston Ball High School plans on making a trip down to Austin for summer camp (June 15-18th). However, his trip to Texas will not be his only stop. In fact, Brown has a very busy summer planned.

“The camps I’m going to are TCU, Texas A&M, UT and U of H,” Brown said.

Brown has said in the past that Texas and Oklahoma were at the top of his list, but Texas A&M has crept into the mix as well.

“Yes sir,” Brown said when asked if UT and OU were still his favorites. “A&M has moved up in there too…I have been keeping in contact with the coaches from A&M.”

Brown seems to have a solid top three in Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. However, none of these schools have offered to date. In fact, Brown is still looking for his first offer to come through.

“I want to go somewhere where I can get a good education,” Brown said. “I also want to be able to go in and fight for my job. I don’t want to stand on the sideline. I want to be able to compete for that starting job.”

As a junior, Brown recorded 75 tackles, four sacks and forced four fumbles on his way to earning First Team All-District honors. He also plays fullback on the offensive side of the ball.
