Report: Bryce Brown leaving K-State, likely headed to NFL

After just one year at Kansas State, which came after transferring after just one year at Tennessee, former No. 1 recruit Bryce Brown has withdrawn from school and could enter the NFL draft, ESPN’s Joe Schad reports.

Stunning news, I know. Brown has been rumored to be on the way out of Manhattan for some time now.

Brown had high expectations coming into Knoxville, but left after just one season with the Vols. He played very sparingly this past season with the Wildcats, rushing just 3 times for 16 yards — all of which came in K-State’s season opener. According to Schad, Brown hasn’t officially informed the school of his decision.

Given the way his career has gone thus far, Brown is probably more remembered for being linked to NCAA inquires at Miami as part of the Nevin Shaprio scandal and Tennessee, where the Association interviewed Brown in connection to possible impermissible recruiting tactics used by the Vols. He was eventually cleared by the NCAA.

Earlier this year, K-State coach Bill Snyder said vaguely “Bryce is going through some difficult times right now and we’ll try to help him all we can.”

    3 rushes for 16 yards? I’m sure NFL teams are just lining up for him.

    And the opponent he posted those gaudy stats against was Eastern Kentucky.

    If you gave half the guys reading this a nice block on the edge, they could run for that against the Colonels.

    Too bad his brother couldn’t talk any sense into him. I’m betting he sells me a cheeseburger before I see him on TV on Sunday.

    I guess the best he can hope for is a chance as an undrafted free-agent.

    Maurice Clarett says Bryce Brown is a primadonna mental case.

    Smells like out of NFL 2-3 years from now.

    2-3 years? I can’t see how he is going to get drafted! And after signing on as an unrestricted free agent, would you take a risk on a player with his history (investigations, transfers)?

    He hasn’t been with K-State since late September. He has been back in Knoxville quite often.

    Leave UM out of it Benny K…such a hater.

    And whenever you mention Shapiro it should read “convicted felon Nevin Shaprio”.

    That is if you were a legit journalist…but hey you and Yahoo like to push the edge right?!?!?!?

    It’s a cultural thing.

    Dear Brian Butler, Youve helped turn a future NFL first round pick into a probable drive up window cashier at McDonalds . Your player development business must be booming lol. Maybe you can open a website charging $9.99 a month keeping us informed on which fast food outlet hell join.
