Brown still open on college choice

Since Texas A&M has moved over to the 3-4 defense, there has been much speculation about how and who A&M will recruit for the nose guard position. With most of the high schools in Texas running the 4-3 and 4-2-5, it has become harder to find a true nose guard prospect. However, Texas A&M may only have to look just down the road in Brenham, where 2012 NG prospect Malcolm Brown has been creating a buzz.

Though the nose guard position may seem a little unflattering to some prospects, due to the fact that they are constantly facing double teams, Brown sees things a little differently.

"Actually, I would like to stick with the nose guard position in college," he said. "It is what we run here at Brenham and I'm used to it."

This summer Brown has been putting in the work to become a better player, lifting weights and running to stay in shape. He's also found time to attend a couple of camps to work on his technique.

"I went to camps at both Texas and Texas A&M this summer," he said. "The A&M camp was nice. They taught me a lot of things that are going to be useful in the future."

While at the Texas A&M camp, Malcolm worked with defensive line coach Terrell Williams. Brown said they two struck up a quick rapport.

"My relationship with Coach Williams is strong," he said. "I like him and think he is a great person."

Even though Brown has frequented A&M many times in the past year, he is in no rush to make a decision about where he wants to play his college ball.

"There are many schools that I have been contacting me, but I can't think of any off the top of my head," he said. "As for now, I just want to take my time and see what options come rolling in."

With August already here, Brown has turned his focus to the up and coming football season and has set both personal and team goals.

"My personal goal this season is just to continue to become a better player each day," he said. "As far as the team, I want to go out there, win every game, and bring home a state championship."

Brown and the rest of the Brenham Cubs will get their first test August 27 as they start off with an away game playing Huntsville. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30.
