The past few months have been anything but quiet for Beaumont (Tex.) Ozen cornerback Tony Brown.
The 6-foot-1,187-pound athlete, who was recently ranked as Scout's overall number one corner, has picked up attention and offers well into the double digits ranging from Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Auburn, Nebraska, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss, to programs closer to home in Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas, LSU, Baylor, TCU, and Texas Tech, with interest stretching to the West Coast (Stanford, UCLA, and USC), just to name a few.
"It's a blessing," he said of his recruiting experience. "It's a blessing and it's exciting. It's an exciting process. I'm taking it all in and I'm enjoying it. I'm having as much fun as I can and not letting it tie me down."
While many players have already dived into the recruiting process, Brown is focusing on the moment-and on a different sport.
"I'm really focused on track right now; I'm the number one hurdler in the country. I'm going to play both track and football when I go to college, so I'm really focusing on track right now. I'm taking football day by day; whatever happens is spontaneous. I'll probably wait until track is over to take visits, but if I get a free weekend, then I'd probably go somewhere," he said.
What schools have made Brown's visit list? Even he doesn't know just yet.
"I haven't made that list with my mom yet. We've been so busy with track," he said.
The talented prospect, has, however, had the opportunity to attend two Junior Days: Texas and Alabama.
"I highly enjoyed both visits. I had a lot of fun in Austin and a lot of fun in Tuscaloosa. It was cool seeing both of their weight rooms, their football facilities, their dorms. I talked to Coach [Mack] Brown and Coach [Nick] Saban, had a sit down with both of them, so that was really cool. It was a great experience," he said.
One thing is certain: whichever program eventually lands Brown will get a commitment from a very determined-and talented-player.
"My versatility has really improved. I played many positions this year: corner, safety, strong safety, basically every position position aside from nose guard. Three technique, five technique, rush team a little bit. I feel like I showed a lot of versatility and that I can play anywhere. The game slowed down a little bit for me this year; my 'field smarts' have gotten better. I like that my football IQ is higher and that I can be a versatile player.
"I hurt my ankle this past season and missed maybe two games, but I feel like throughout it all, I made a lot of plays. I feel like we should have gone farther in the playoffs, but I feel like I had a really good season," he said.
Brown believes he'll ultimately end up at corner at the next level.
"I have length, speed, and quickness and I like playing cornerback. I'm a press guy; I'm fast and I can run with you. I feel like I can stick with them," he said.
Brown does have one weekend planned for football activity, as the corner said he would be attending the the Nike Football Training Camp held in Dallas in early April.
