Curtis Brown is one of the top defensive backs in the nation, ranked 3rd in his position by and number 2 by Rivals. The 6-footer from Gilmer was dynamic with the football in his hands as a high school wide receiver but he will at least start his career at Texas as a cornerback.

At Gilmer Brown was a three-year starter who received district and regional accolades as sophomore and junior and national honors as a senior. Named first team all-state by The Associated Press and the Texas Sports Writers Association his senior season.

Immediate Impact

As a spring enrollee, Curtis is already on campus and is wearing Nathan Vasher’s number 3 jersey. The depth chart at corner is wide open after the departures of Aaron Ross and Tarell Brown and Brown’s early start should allow him a shot to crack at least the two-deep. Could at least make an immediate impact as a kick returner if the coaching staff trusts him back there.


He is Texas’ highest rated defensive back in a long time (since Edorian McCullough who was great on my Xbox but not so much in the classroom) and will be expected to be a three-year starter in the defensive backfield. Great frame and has the athleticism to be shut down corner for the Horns.
