Henderson’s Patrick ‘Monster’ Brown Holds Three College Offers
HENDERSON -- Patrick Brown lived up to his nickname "Monster" in all three phases of the game as a junior, when he was a terror on both sides of the ball and special teams.
Brown updated ETSN.fm on Tuesday morning about his recruitment. The 5-10, 170-pound athlete holds two Division I FBS offers -- New Mexico State and ULM -- and one Division I FCS offer -- Central Arkansas.
Brown has no plans to make any decisions soon.
"I'm just going to wait until the season starts to see how many more offers I can get," he said. "I'll take what I can get."
Brown camped with Baylor in June. He and Henderson coach Dickey Meeks confirmed that the Bears have shown interest since. Meeks believes Brown will start seeing more offers once the season gets going.
Brown scored 20 touchdowns five different ways a year ago -- 10 receiving, six punt return, three rushing, one kickoff return and one fumble return. His versatility will be even more important for Henderson this season as the Lions replace record-setting quarterback Del Barnes (Cornell) and Lamarcus "Pee Wee" Brown, Patrick's older brother, who is now at SFA.
Brown has high hopes for Henderson's offense despite the loss of Barnes during the offseason.
"Move the ball, have fast tempo, and just finish the game hard," Brown said. "We've just got to be better than we were last year and have higher standards."
