Brown Looks Forward to being a 'Hoo, But Not Just Yet

Posted: Updated:


The Virginia football team will add one of the best high school players in the country next season as six-foot-four, 300-pound defensive tackle Andrew Brown is set to join the Cavaliers.
UVA fans were able to get a sneak preview of the future 'Hoo this weekend as Brown was playing at Scott Stadium in the 6A state championship game.

Andrew Brown is excited to become a member of the Virginia football team but after his Oscar Smith High School team lost 35-6 against Centreville in the state championship game, Brown wasn't ready to consider the future quite yet.

"I really wasn't even thinking about that, to tell you the truth," said Brown. "I still got 'Smith' on my jersey, and I play for them.  I wouldn't play for anybody else, yet."

Brown had four solo tackles in the title game Saturday at Scott Stadium, including two tackles for a loss and a forced fumble.

The five-star defensive tackle and Gatorade National player of the year will be playing on that same field Saturday's during the fall.

Brown has signed his grant-in-aid papers which will allow him to enroll early at Virginia, and participate in spring practice.

London says, "Andrew is a dynamic player on the defensive side, he's the number-one defensive tackle in the country, and I know that his ability and his accomplishments, his work ethic, there's so many different things about him that he brings to the table that makes your football team a better team."

The Cavaliers will hit the field for Spring Practice around mid-March.
