Curtis Brown

Curtis Brown, a verbal commitment to the Texas Longhorns, is the fourth-best high school player in the Class of 2007 in Texas and the 26th best in the nation, according to the scouting reports at The other night against Daingerfield, he put on an absolutely phenomenal performance with seven receptions for 175 yards. He also returned a kickoff 88 yards for a TD, one of four he scored on the night.

Like Traylor, Williams is coaching in his hometown. “This is the only place I’ve known. I graduated from here and I’ve coached here for 27 years. I’ve never coache…
