In July, linebacker Nekos Brown committed to Virginia Tech, ending his recruitment. With his recruitment coming to a close, Brown’s entire focus was on his senior year – and he played very well in helping Thomas Stone High School into the playoffs.

“Our season went pretty good,” Nekos Brown said. “I missed the first two games, I had a slight tear of the meniscus. But we won 6 of our last 7 games and went to the playoffs. We had a real good season.”

While Brown missed part of his senior season due to injury, he rebounded to have a spectacular senior campaign. “I think I came back from our injury pretty well,” Brown said. “I led the conference in tackles and also played the slot receiver. I made All-Conference.” For the season, Brown ended up with 90 tackles including 11 for a loss, 4 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries, and three touchdowns on offense.”

After leading Thomas Stone to a playoff berth, Brown’s high school career concluded with a loss in the first round of the playoffs. Now Brown looks to move on to the next step in his life – four to five years in Blacksburg. Brown will report to Virginia Tech this summer – but he will first take his official visit to Blacksburg later this month.

“I take my official January 20th,” Brown noted. “But I talk to [Coach Ball] all the time. It’s not so much in recruiting [that we talk about,] but he wants to know me personally. It’s not just like I’m a prospect.”

Through talking with the Tech coaches, Brown’s learned that he has a good chance to play this upcoming season. “[Coach Ball] was like if I redshirt it’ll be because I don’t comprehend the system in time,” Brown said. “He’s said I’m sound physically.”

Along with being sound physically, the future Hokie mike linebacker also has his act together in the classroom. “I’m good to go [academically] too,” Brown said. “I registered and in the middle of the season I was qualified.”
