K-State keeping up with Brown

St. Louis (Mo.) Hazelwood West athlete Lamark Brown was one of the first players to commit to play for Ron Prince's Wildcats. The member of the Rivals100 recently impressed coaches from all across the country with his performance in the East-West All-American game. The skills he showed leading up to the game and during the game increased the calls about Brown maybe being interested in other schools.

"The calls and text messages did pick up," the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Brown said. "I had coaches wanting to see if I would be interested in taking a visit to see their school. It isn't working though. I'm solid in my commitment to Kansas State."

The K-State coaches have been staying in contact with the four-star rated Brown as the opening of the national letter-of-intent signing period nears.

"Coach Mo (Latimore) was here on Monday to see us. Coach Prince and Coach (James) Franklin are going to be here next week to see us at the house."

Brown's performance during the All-American game was the end of a good week all the way around for the future K-State wide receiver.

"The experience was really good at the game," he said. "I was able to be around a lot of great athletes and go up against them. It was a special thing. There were coaches there from colleges all over. The Kansas State coaches weren't there. They did tell me that when they were at the coaching convention in San Antonio they kept getting coaches telling them how well I played in the game."

Brown will sign his letter at Hazelwood West on February 7.

"I don't know what all we have planned at the school. We have several people signing letters that day. Some of them don't know where they are going, yet, though. I'm sure the coaches will have something big lined up for us that day so everyone can see us signing."
