Las Vegas (Nev.) Spring Valley defensive back Corbin Brown will be one of the top prospects in the West region for the class of 2008. The talented safety is already hearing from a host of schools and took an unofficial visit to UCLA this past weekend to check out the Bruins taking on Arizona.
Brown, 6-0, 160 pounds first caught our eye at one of the NIKE Combines we did back in March. The athlete clocked a 4.78 in the 40, a 4.00 in the shuttle and jumped 32 inches in the vertical. Brown shows up very well on film and is having a big junior season.
The Grizzlies are currently 6-1 on the year and Brown has 70 tackles and five picks on the year. Just this past weekend, Spring Valley knocked off state power Bishop Gorman 28-14 and Brown racked up 15 tackles and one interception.
"Corbin had the time of his life at the UCLA game," Brown's father Greg said. "The hospitality, the amount of information we received and the attention Corbin got from the entire staff was incredible. Corbin was able to not only talk with the football ops and the scholarship adviser but his position coach, Coach DeLoach and Coach Dorrell as well.
The Rose Bowl is an exciting place to watch the game and the crowd was great. Corbin was able to see some of the players he saw from the B2G camp from the summer, guys from Crenshaw, Long Beach Poly and De La Salle and that was fun for him. Corbin was amazed at the speed of their secondary and some of the huge hits the defensive backs had in the game.
"UCLA was already sending mail weekly and the coaches said they will continue to stay in touch with us. We also dropped off Corbin's transcripts and a hi light tape of his first six games this year. In addition to UCLA, Corbin is hearing quite a bit from Stanford, Arizona State, Florida, Washington, Auburn, Wisconsin, Texas, Utah and Oregon.
"We're going to go up to Palo Alto and catch a game and see the campus at Stanford later in the year. It's an exciting time right now as Corbin has had some great dialouge through email and letters from a lot of these schools."
