ARLINGTON, Texas – Kansas State junior linebacker Arthur Brown won’t spend any time worrying aboutwhether the Cotton Bowl will be his final game as a college player this week.
He will return to the Wildcats as a senior.
“I’m confident I will be back,” said Brown, a former Wichita East standout. “I feel like it will give me anotheropportunity to grow as a player and a leader. It will be great for our team for me to come back with allthe other guys coming back.”
Brown led K-State in tackles with 95 this season and helped the Wildcats’ defense significantly improveas a unit. He was named the Big 12’s 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 namecalled. But he apparently hasn’t 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 inbeing part of the team. I’m very team-oriented.”
