Scout.com/with video: Eastern Michigan lands three-star offensive line recruit Dwayne Brown
The Eastern Michigan football team landed a three-star offensive line recruit over the weekend.
According to Scout.com, Dwayne Brown -- a 6-foot-5, 330 lb. senior out of Warren Central High School in Indianapolis -- verbally committed to the Eagles on Saturday.
Brown told Scout.com's Allen Trieu that head coach Ron English, running backs coach and former Michigan All-American Mike Hart and offensive line coach Kurt Anderson won him over during an official visit.
"I know they're going to make me better," Brown told Trieu.
Brown also told Trieu that he likes the thought of playing with "the quarterback they have coming in," presumably a reference to EMU commit Brogan Roback, a 6-4, 185-pound quarterback from St. John's Jesuit High School that both Scout.com and Rivals.com have ranked as a four-star recruit. Roback would be the first four-star player at the Eastern in the 10-year history of the recruiting services.
Scout.com has Brown as the 52nd ranked guard recruit in the nation and of Eastern's 11 commitments for the Class of 2013, he is the only one above a two-star rating besides Roback.
EMU went 2-10 this year and are 10-38 in English's four-year tenure.
