Brown bouncing back

Class of 2010 running back Corey Brown had everything going for him just a couple of months ago.

The talented junior from Springfield (Pa.) Cardinal O'Hara was picking up offers left and right and was widely regarded as one of the top prospects in his class. He still is, but an injury has caused his season to be sidetracked.

"I've only played in three games so far this year," Brown said. "I tore my MCL in the third game so I've been out.

"I'm doing rehab right now for it and I should be back for the first round of the playoffs. I've just been in the pool running, riding the bike and doing different exercises."

Cardinal O'Hara was 3-0 before Brown went down with his injury. They won their next four in spite of his absence but just lost their last game and they are looking to bounce back. In the three games Brown played in he racked up 545 yards and an eye-popping 13 touchdowns. Despite his injury schools didn't back off.

"Lately I've been talking to schools like Florida, UCLA, Colorado, Notre Dame and Tennessee," he explained. "I haven't been to any games recently but I've been thinking about going some places. I was planning on going to the Rutgers-Louisville game at the end of the year and I'd like to get out to Penn State for a game sometime."

The 6-foot, 171-pound running back has been timed at 4.47 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
