UTEP cornerback Cornelius Brown might not be on many draft boards, but after his performance in the Texas vs. The Nation All Star game in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday, scouts might want to take a closer look.
Brown returned a fumble 35 yards for the game's first touchdown with about 9:40 remaining in the first half and gave Texas the momentum to earn a 36-17 win.
Brown, who was named the game’s MVP, also downed a punt at the 3-yard line.
Brown was the highlight among the 30 players from the nonautomatic-qualifying schools who participated in the game.
Marshall's Albert McClellan scored on an interception return for Texas late in the game, which helped turn the contest into a rout.
Said Brown after the game: "I wanted to give the fans something to cheer about before this game and I did.”
