Cats adds another JUCO commitment

By The Mercury

Kansas State added another commitment to the 2013 recruiting class on Tuesday, as defensive tackle Chris Brown announced he intends to play for the Wildcats.

Brown was originally recruited by K-State in 2010 before attending Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College. He committed to Washington State, but when the school fired its coaches and hired Mike Leach, Brown chose to sit out for a year.

He spent the past season working out with trainers to get ready for the 2013 season.

At 6-foot-4, 310 pounds, Brown would already be one of the biggest guys on the Wildcats’ roster, second only to freshman defensive lineman Xavier Gates, who is listed at 6-3, 312 pounds.

Brown, a Mesa, Ariz., native, picked the Wildcats over Arizona State and Iowa. Brown didn’t visit Iowa and told Rivals he was still leaning toward K-State after a visit to Arizona State.

In his final season at Scottsdale, Brown finished with 68 tackles, including 13 for loss and six sacks.

The Wildcats have 21 commits for the 2013 recruiting class with signing day quickly approaching on Feb. 5.
