Kyreek Brown Interview


I recently interviewed Kyreek Brown an OL/DL from Elmore HS in Stanhope AL. Kyreek is a 6' 4" lineman that played DE on goal line situations and ORT in the 09 season. Brown has expressed interest in playing at UK and is being recruited by Tee Martin.

On offense, Kyreek played ORT last year, but looks to transition to TE for the '10 season. Brown attended the Alabama Camp in June of this year and currently has offers from Southern Miss and may soon have one from UAB. In addition to these schools, he has an interest in UK, Alabama, and OSU. The Senior plans on majoring in either Communications or Architecture in college and will choose a school based upon the type of education he can get and the type of environment offered by the school.

Kyreek says that the most influential people in his life have been his Mother and Aunt. As far as coaches and their influence, he points to his current HS Head Coach Jeff Foshee.

Brown thinks that his current skill set includes being able to catch the ball and breaking tackles after having caught the ball. He plans on working on his blocking skills this year in order to make him a more rounded player. His favorite players growing up included: Ted Ginn Jr., Troy Smith, and Rolando Mc Clain. Kyreek says that he runs a 4.61 in the 40 yard, and that his HS team for this year will rely upon defense and a running ball control offense.

  1. Which is he being recruited for? He is 6'4 230lbs. Light if he is for the OLine although with his body he will grow the weight def need a Redshirt. DE maybe? I wouldn't think another TE we are floating in them right now. But I'm not a UK recruiter and def not Tee Martin.
