|Scouting Report: Brown is probably the most complete running back to come out of the Lone Star State since Adrian Peterson. He has the size, speed, balance, and tackle breaking ability to be a home threat every time he touches the ball, but he will also pick up the hard yards in the middle of the field. When the hole opens up there is no wasted movement with Brown, as he makes just one cut an explodes through it. - Greg Powers|
Wilder did in fact select Florida State over offers from Georgia and Florida, but the late afternoon commitment news was quickly trumped on the national scene by the profoundly quiet super star Malcolm Brown, a 6-foot-0, 220-pound running back from Cibolo Steele High (Texas), who chose the Longhorns with little publicity or fanfare over Alabama and other elite level offers.
Malcolm Brown checks in as the 3rd best prospect in the country according to Scout.com and is the top rated player in the state of Texas. This is the second consecutive year that Mack Brown has been able to reel in the state's top ranked player. Last season UT signed Jackson Jeffcoat from Plano West.
As a junior Brown had 201 carries for 2,170 yards (10.8 yards per carry) and scored 33 touchdowns to earn First Team All-State honors.
Eval - When you watch Brown you feel like you are seeing exactly what a running back is supposed to be. He has great size and runs with authority. When he sees a hole or has to get past a defender he makes one move and then explodes making him an elusive back with size. He also has tremendous balance which allows him to stay on his feet when lower his shoulder to deliver a blow or spinning away from defenders.
