2010 quarterback gets Nebraska offer
The 2010 offers are now officially beginning to roll out and early indications are that Nebraska will be looking for a quarterback. At least six quarterbacks have received offer letters from Bo Pelini’s staff and one of those prospects is Allen (Texas) High School quarterback Matt Brown.
“Yes sir, I got an offer from Nebraska,” confirmed Brown. “It came about four days ago. They came up during the spring to check on our receivers and DBs and scout hem and they saw me and said I could be a good player.”
Nebraska hadn’t been a school that Brown had been thinking about pryor to the offer but now that it is in, he is very excited to have interest from the Cornhuskers.
“I haven’t really thought about playing there,” he said. “It’s definitely a good start for what’s to come. Nebraska is a great school and it has an amazing tradition.”
Last season, the plan was for Brown to share time under center with a senior teammate, but after an injury, Brown found himself as the starter and never looked back. He passed for 2,420 yards and 25 touchdowns as a sophomore and added just under 1,000 yards rushing on the ground and 10 more touchdowns.
As good as that sophomore campaign was, Brown is expecting more as a junior.
“I’ve been a lot better than I was last year,” he said. “I changed my throwing motion. It was kind of behind my head kind of the way Mike Vick played and now I’ve shortened up my motion and that’s really going to help me. I know my strengths and my weaknesses and I worked on my weaknesses and we have a great coaching staff at Allen.”
Brown also will have a higher comfort level as a junior because of the experience of last season.
“It’s kind of nice because last year I had a lot of pressure on me and I was kind of nervous. Now I’m playing the game the way it’s supposed to be played.”
Brown is in no hurry to address his college choices but instead hopes to stay focused on the season at hand. However, whenever the time comes to start taking a close look at schools, Brown will have no immediate favorites in the process.
“It’s pretty much just up to God. I’m just doing what I need to get done and letting all that take care of itself.”
Brown, who has family in Colorado, has been in contact with the Buffalo staff on the phone and has also called Texas Tech and some other Big 12 schools.
