A new Division I FBS scholarship offer arrived Thursday for Newton 2019 WR/CB Tamauzia Brown.

Brown reported via Twitter that UTEP became the 15th program to offer him.

The Newton two-way standout also holds offers from Arkansas, Arkansas State, Baylor, Houston, Louisiana Tech, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma State, San Diego State, Southern Miss, SMU, TCU, Texas Tech, and UTSA.

Brown (6-1, 170), who is a four-star recruit and ranked 30th overall in the state of Texas by 247sports.com, is one of five Newton players with scholarship offers.

The defending Class 3A Division II state champs also have 2019 RB Darwin Barlow, 2019 QB/ATH Josh Foster, 2019 Caiden Walker, and 2020 DE James Sylvester who have FBS opportunities.

Brown was instrumental in Newton's undefeated run in 2017. He starred on both sides of the ball, totaling 1,432 yards of offense and 18 touchdowns as a receiver. Brown also finished with an area-best 12 interceptions on defense.

UTEP just hired Dana Dimel as its new head football coach after he spent the previous nine seasons as an assistant at Kansas State. The Miners, who compete in Conference USA, were 0-12 overall in 2017.

Brown, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any team that offers him beginning in December.
