ARLINGTON, Texas Kansas State junior linebacker Arthur Brown wont spend any time worrying about whether the Cotton Bowl will be his final game as a college player this week.
He will return to the Wildcats as a senior.
Im confident I will be back, said Brown, a former Wichita East standout. I feel like it will give me another opportunity to grow as a player and a leader. It will be great for our team for me to come back with all the other guys coming back.
Brown led K-State in tackles with 95 this season and helped the Wildcats defense significantly improve as a unit. He was named the Big 12s Defensive Newcomer of the Year, and earned first-team all- conference honors.
If Brown declared himself eligible for the NFL draft as an early entrant, he would likely hear his name called. But he apparently hasnt given that any thought.
No, my decision is to come back and just to be part of the team, Brown said. I find great value in being part of the team. Im very team-oriented.
