QB Matt Brown

Recommended Posts

Tangentially related, TAMU just got its 2nd QB commit for this class. With Texas already having 2 QBs for this year, Nebraska should look like a good destination for a guy like Matt Brown (or Jacoby Walker or Zach Lee or James Franklin or Scotty Young or ... man, Texas has a lot of good QBs)

Latest from Husker Journal:

 

MARCH 5, 2009. PREP STAR

MATT BROWN, QB, 6-0, 175, 4.6, ALLEN, TEXAS

 

Matt has offers from Nebraska and Arizona. Matt said he is hearing from Oregon, Kansas, San Diego State and others.

 

Husker Fans Are Special

 

“I like the football town (Lincoln) they eat, sleep and breathe football. Something I really like. I haven’t seen their facilities yet, but I heard they are really nice.” Brown said

 

Thoughts On Bo And Nebraska

 

“Bo seen me weight lifting a little bit. I met him he’s really nice a real good guy and I really like them (Nebraska). I’m almost positive he (Bo) will turn the program around. They have been getting recruit after recruit. I’m sure in the next year or two Nebraska will have a national championship caliber type of team.” Brown said

 

When asked if Cody Green being at Nebraska will be a factor.

 

“Not really,” Brown said, “I like the competition. That’s one thing I kind of like. Nebraska they get a lot of good recruits and I kind of feel it will improve my game a little bit. All my life you have to have a mean side to you and take some time to develop. That’s what I like about Nebraska going to a big school where I like to compete for a job and make myself better.”

 

Parents Are Arizona Grads

 

“My mom and dad both went to Arizona just because of that its one reason why I like Arizona. I like what they are doing there (Arizona) their offense and stuff and I like the Tucson area.” Brown said

 

“I think Arizona has a need for a quarterback. We haven’t talked about it much just kind of introducing ourselves. I think they (Arizona) need someone who can run around a little bit make plays.” Brown said

 

Early Playing Time

 

“I would love to get into the mix of things and start,” Brown said,” Contribute to the team some way somehow. Whatever I can do to help their program. I’m up to redshirting too.”

 

Camps And Unofficials

 

“I’m going to a one day camp at Kansas and I might be going to San Diego State and (camp to) Arizona and Nebraska of course. I also have an Elite 11 camp and Nike camp. Elite 11 is at TCU’s practice field. There will be eleven quarterbacks there for film footage.” Brown said

 

“At the Nike combine is where I will do my vertical and 40 and stuff.” Brown said, “I’m invited to the Under Armour All-American Bowl. I was supposed to make their combine about a week ago but I was running track.”

 

“A lot of quarterbacks went to camps in January and got offers. I couldn’t make any camps because of the collar bone injury. I was in rehab.” Brown added

 

Abilities

 

“They (coaches) like how I can make plays with my feet and my arm. My whole thing is if the defense stacks up and drops I’m going to sprint and take off for 10 or 20 yards maybe score. If they are going to scoot up and blitz people and leave receiver open, I’ll sit back and toss the ball.”

 

“I’m looking for a college that fits the education. Education is really important to me I want to finish up school. I also want to have that home feeling when I go to college.” Brown said what he is looking for picking the right college.

 

Undecided When To Commit

 

“I might commit before the season begins,” Brown said, “I depends what I have in front of me. Which one (school) is the best which one is not the best. If I’m not comfortable I might want to wait a little late.” Brown said

per Rivals: Allen quarterback Matt Brown put on a no-doubt he's recovered performance at theoldcoach.com Ultimate Combine at Coppell on Saturday. Brown was named the Combine MVP among the 130 invitation-only participants after putting up one of the top 40 times with a 4.54 and strong showings in the bench press and throwing in skill drills...He bench-pressed 185 pounds 12 times at the combine _ a very high number for quarterbacks.

Plus we don't know who the coaches are really going after. The coaches offer a lot of qbs but probably have one in mind that they'd love to get. First was probably Bell, now it seems they are really going after Gabbert. Just my opinion but I really think that if we do relatively well this year, meaning around 10 wins excluding CC or Bowl game I think we'll see a lot of recruits want to take a closer look who normally wouldn't have wanted to.

Ya, it's not just the offer, a lot of it is how hard you're chasing. Hell sometimes you got kids with offers we wouldn't even take a commitment from. We were obviously interested but I don't think he was at the top of our board or that we were after balls-to-the-wall.

Sucks to be Mike Stoops right now, his program had big momentum coming-off the USC-win and getting second in the PAC. Safe to say momentum-gone.

Oh man I hope we didn't do anything to disrupt that? I'd feel like such an ass if we are one of the reasons for their recruiting downward spiral. :box

Matt Brown played in District 8-5a with Rex Burkhead. Allen beat Plano 2 years in a row with a state championship in his junior year. He's for real and quite a stud.

 

We were in it for a while....then Gabbert happened.

 

Anyone know if we contacted Matt after he de-committed from Arizona?
