5-Star Cornerback Tony Brown Gets Offer From Florida State
One of the top cornerbacks in the 2014 recruiting class, Tony Brown, has received yet another scholarship offer. This time, the five-star corner got offered by the Florida State Seminoles.
This marks Brown’s 22nd scholarship offer overall, with the clear leader being LSU. The talented cornerback is ranked the second best cornerback in the 2014 class by 247Sports and looks to be a lockdown corner with exceptional speed.
Brown is actually regarded as a top track prospect as well, proving that his speed could be a vital part of his game. He ran the nation’s fastest time in the 60-meter hurdles in a track event in February.
Although the Seminoles are the latest team to offer the young talent, he is extremely interested in the program and the direction that it is headed. He would bolster the defensive side of the ball while maybe even contributing to the return game with the speed that he possesses.
It will be tough, however, for the Seminoles to lure the talented defensive back away from LSU, as he already has ties to the school. His sister, Bealoved, is committed to the Tigers for track and field, while he is also trying to go to a school that will let him play football and run track.
It will be tough to break two siblings up, but the Seminoles are dead set on getting the five-star back to commit.
Brown finished with 96 tackles, three interceptions and 16 pass break-ups in 2011 as a junior, improving on all of his sophomore year numbers and earning an Honorable Mention All-State selection as well. Let’s see if the Seminoles get what they want — the 6-foot, 185-pound cornerback from Texas.
