2014 Texas corner lands Auburn offer
- - Elite 2014 defensive back Tony Brown held 20 college offers entering last weekend's Rivals Underclassmen Challenge.
Following his performance on Sunday, he earned one more.
Brown, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect from Beaumont (Tex.) Ozen, spoke with Auburn running backs coach Curtis Luper on Monday.
Luper recruits the state of Texas for the Tigers and relayed the good news to Brown.
"He told me they are recruiting me, about how he recruited Cam Newton and Michael Dyer, and about Auburn's history," Luper said. "He said we are extending you a full scholarship offer. Auburn usually has a good defense. When they won the national championship, Cam Newton wasn't the only reason they won, they had a good defense and I'm a defensive guy."
Brown was a standout amongst the nation's elite underclassmen at Desoto High School (Tex.). Brown won Defensive Back MVP honors in arguably the most talented position group in attendance.
"I did really well on Sunday," Brown said.
Brown claims no favorites early in his recruiting process, and is interested in building a relationship with the Auburn staff.
"I'm totally open right now," said Brown. "I would like to talk to the Auburn coaching staff more and possibly set up a visit in the future."
With size and speed displayed at the Underclassmen Challenge, Brown projects in college as either a cornerback or a safety.
LSU, Texas and Alabama have all been discussed as early leaders for Brown, who added that schools such as USC, Oregon, and Stanford could all be next to extend verbal offers.
