Major Division I-A prospects don't often come from Division V schools, but Vince Browne of Lisbon (Oh.) David Anderson is an exception.
Browne (6-5, 237) has listed offers from Indiana, Northwestern, and Akron, and he is beginning to hear from some of the power teams in the Midwest region.
"Ohio State coaches were in to school last week and so was Michigan State," said Vince's father Ed. "Illinois, Purdue and Michigan State are looking pretty hard and have had a lot of requests on tape and text messages. Also Maryland, Kansas, Missouri, and Louisville."
Currently, Browne is running track and also getting ready for a busy combine
"Vince is preparing for the combines and camps," Ed Browne said. "He has been running the 100 meters, 4x2, the 200 meters and 400 in track. In our small league, he has been placing and their 4x2 has been consistently winning.
"We also have a new football coach who helps with track a little and has been helping him on his starts. He can't wait for the season and has a real level head about the attention."
Ed Browne also shed light on Vince's camp schedule.
"Vince has been to the scout.com combine at Pitt, MSL in Pittsburgh and then
he will be at Ohio State on May 5," he said. "The only other things I was going
to take him to was Ohio State's senior camp in early June and Penn State's
senior camp in late June."
Vince Browne is a versatile player who has played OL, DL and TE. Ed Browne says the line may be Vince's future.
"Vince said he will play any side of the ball where he can help, and sees that he may be a guard, OT or DE, now," he said.
