LaDarius Brown narrowing his choices

There is one team on the mind of one of the top prospects in the nation.

Entering his senior year at Waxahachie High School, LaDarius Brown is not a man of many words but the wide receiver has the full attention of some of the top colleges in the South.

After completing a 120-play intersquad scrimmage Brown said he was not looking ahead to the collegiate level and what team he may take his talents to. Instead he is focused on the Waxahachie Indians and making sure this season is as successful as the last.

Ranked No. 43 in the nation according to, Brown is a dual-threat player for Waxahachie. He caught 34 passes for 889 yards in a run-first offense in 2009 while intercepting four passes and making 41 tackles as an all-district safety.

Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, TCU and Baylor are just a few of the schools who have reached out to Brown this offseason but the senior says TCU, Baylor and A&M are the leading three.

While he has made no official visits and does not plan to do so until after the season, Brown could be tempted to sign with TCU if one of his closest teammates does the same.

Friends since the fourth grade, Brown and D.Q. Robinson are nearly inseparable off the field and have attend several camps together this summer.

Robinson, a running back and corner for Waxahachie, said the duo would not mind going to TCU together but they are waiting until after the season to see where the offers stand.

During Saturday's intersquad scrimmage, Brown made several big plays both offensively and defensively for the Tribe while battling a headache. One of the senior's biggest plays came on defense, as he prevented a touchdown after chasing down a Waxahachie ball carrier who appeared to be home free.
