TCU an option for Brown

Undoubtably one of the top remaining uncommitted 2008 prospects left in the Lone Star state is Waller defensive tackle Eddie Brown.

The Rivals three-star prospect holds an offer list that contains 16 schools with notable one's from the likes of TCU, Nebraska, Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Missouri.

Several schools like Brown's raw athletic ability at tackle with a good mixture of size (6-2, 266) and size (4.5 forty). Brown helped Waller to a 9-4 record in 2007 and racked up district 18-4A defensive MVP honors as he amassed 99 tackles, 13 sacks, 1 interception, and 34 tackles for loss.

Brown says he doesn't have a top five currently and is looking at all his options. TCU recently offered Brown and he has plans to visit on the 25th of this month.

"I love TCU, I like it a lot," he said. "They're recruiting me as a defensive tackle, they haven't talked about any other position. I like them because they're a good program and they have a history of producing a lot of tackles and defensive ends. They're a winning program too."

Brown's teammate Jeremy Phillips has an older brother who is an all-conference linebacker at TCU(Jason Phillips) and Brown says that's always an item of discussion when he visits.

"Every time I go to their house that's all the talk about is TCU."

Brown has a scheduled visit for Nebraska on January 11th and the one for TCU on the 25th. He has not set any other visit dates yet and says he'll likely decide after his last visit.

Early playing time and location appear to be the biggest factors in Brown's decision making.

"Playing early and location are big factors," he said. "I want to stay kind o close to home but if I got to play right away at a school farther away then I may go farther."
