During an interview in early September, Hargrave Military Academy cornerback Philip Brown spoke about his focus and determination to get to the University of Virginia.
“I wish I was here [at Hargrave] a long time ago, and I’m just trying to make the most of it right now,” said Brown in the earlier interview. “I’m just in a good situation. I’m glad that I was able to get a second chance. Coach Prunty and all the coaches have really pushed me and I’m definitely a better player than I was in high school. I’m just happy to be here, getting my academics squared away. I’ve been really focused on that. Whenever I’m not practicing, I’m studying. Whenever I’m not studying, I’m practicing.”
In a conversation yesterday with Hargrave Military Academy Recruiting Coordinator Chris Wagner, Brown appears to still be on the right track.
“Philip is doing very well for us,” said Wagner. “He is a good kid with a good heart and I like him a lot. I know he has to graduate here first, but I see no reason why he will not be at Virginia next year. His grades are good and he’s working hard. He’ll be able to help Virginia a lot next year.”
Brown signed with Virginia in February of 2003. He has re-committed to Virginia and will sign again in February of 2004. Brown could be an immediate contributor for the Cavaliers next season.
