It is always an eye opener when opposing coaches rave about opposing players and that is what is happening for three-star defensive tackle Justin Brown (6-2, 270, 5.0) from Compton, Calif. It is even more eye opening when the opposing coaches find out that Brown has yet to get an offer, their mouth drop open, such is the case when you talk about Brown.
Brown is one of the reasons that Compton is off to their best start in years as they stand at a perfect 4-0. On the season, Brown has accounted for 21 tackles, one sack and one interception that he returned 65 yards for a score.
While Compton head coach Calvin Bryant is surprised by the lack of offers for his outstanding defensive tackle prospect, he is sure that offers will be forthcoming.

"UCLA was in the audience our last game against Compton (Calif.) Dominguez," Bryant said. "Coach Howard called Justin on Saturday and told him that Justin did well.
"Justin really uses his hands really well and he is extremely quick off the ball," Bryant said. "This guy has a lot of upside and has everything you want in a defensive lineman. He also has outstanding character and he is already qualified."
"I have told Justin to keep doing what he's doing and everything will out okay" Bryant said. "He is hearing from everybody and it's only a matter of time before someone pulls the trigger and offers him."
Besides UCLA other schools showing interest in Brown are Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Nebraska and Utah.
Brown attended the USC/Oregon game last Saturday Evening with his cousin and USC commit, Chris Metcalf.
