Beddingfield (Wilson, NC) star defensive end/tight end Everette Brown made his first 2004 summer camp performance in late June, when he attended the Penn State summer camp. The 6-3, 230 pound Brown posted his best-ever 40 time during the event, increasing his already high stock.
“My team went to camp at NC State in early June, but I didn’t participate because of an injury I had,” Brown said. He has 14 scholarship offers right now. “I did go to Penn State’s camp from June 20th thru the 23rd. I was healthy for that one. I went in their a little more focused than I usually am. I ran a 4.55 in the 40. It was probably my fastest ever time.”
As for Brown’s remaining summer schedule, he plans on attending the Wake Forest camp with his team this Saturday and will head to UNC for camp later this month. He plans on making an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech, where he was originally considering attending this weekend’s senior camp.
“Our team is going to a one-day camp this Saturday, and I plan on going to UNC on the 16th and 17th,” Brown said. “I talked to Coach [Charley] Wiles earlier today. I had planned to go to Virginia Tech’s camp this weekend but I got my dates mixed up. I still want to take an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech this summer. I may go down to FSU this summer too.”
An excellent athlete, Brown is being recruited as a defensive end or tight end. In high school, he played defensive end before being moved to middle linebacker to negate opposing offenses from running away from him. His speed is a major asset on defense and offense.
Florida State and UNC are the only schools recruiting Brown exclusively for tight end. Virginia Tech is looking at him on both sides of the ball. Right now he prefers to play defense but admitted it will not be a major factor at all in his final decision.
“At this time, I’d prefer defensive end,” Brown said. “But that’s not going to factor much in my decision. Virginia Tech told me they are recruiting me for both. Basically, they said I could play wherever I wanted to. I told them I’d like to play defensive end.”
Brown states no favorite schools right now. He wants to make as many visits as he can this summer before narrowing his list.
“At this time I don’t have any favorites,” Brown said. “I’ve been to like seven or eight schools, and I like what I see every time I see a one. I’m still kind of up in the air. I’m pretty open.”
