Just a week ago, we caught up with Greg Brown, father of Las Vegas (Nev.) Spring Valley defensive back Corbin Brown to get the latest on his sons recruitment. At the time, it appeared there would be some trips in the coming weeks but plans changed and Brown ended the process last night.
Brown, 6-0, 165 pounds is one of the top safety prospects in the West region. He had 104 tackles and six picks a year ago and had a solid showing at the NIKE Camp at Stanford as well.
The knock on Brown has always been his size but he has already gained 15 pounds since the summer and it has paid off so far this year. In three games, Brown has 20 tackles, two fumble recoveries and a 62 yard punt return for a score. He has also seen time at cornerback and his ability to cover is one of the reasons we think he'll be a top notch safety at the next level.
As for where he'll play, Brown is headed to paradise after committing to Hawaii Monday night.
"We talked to his coach and we all felt the timing was right for him to commit," Greg Brown said. "We just saw Hawaii play in person last weekend because they were in town to play UNLV. The out pour of love from their fans during the game screaming his name was incredible. There were a lot of other teams recruiting Corbin but we didn't want to wait around and risk losing the offer from Hawaii when that is where he really wanted to go.
"Hawaii has been his leader for awhile now. We visited Wisconsin two weeks ago and were planning on going to Oregon State this weekend but he's solid with Hawaii and very excited about his decision. His head is still spinning right now and it's amazing all the support he has already gotten from people back there."
