Charlotte 49ers Football: Local OL Chris Brown from Vance High Verbals


No sooner than we had posted our writeup of Dudley (NC) two-way player Emmanuel Moseley that we got word of another verbal, number seven for Brad Lambert and the staff.  It’s Chris Brown (6’4″, 280) out of Vance High School here in Charlotte.

Brown was a teammate of future Charlotte DB Nolan Corpening and was part of a team in 2012 that finished 9-4 (5-2 I-Meck), improving greatly on their 5-7 record in 2011.  He’s the third o-lineman from the class of 2014 to pledge thus far, joining Jean-Luc Cerza-Lanaux from Charlotte Christian and Nate Davis from Stone Bridge (VA). The staff is really looking to go after some big bodies: Cerza-Lanaux is listed at 290.

On top of his work on the o-line, Brown played tight end and some defensive tackle in 2012, but looks as if he’s being recruited primarily as an offensive lineman.  He was also a center on the basketball team where he saw some time off the bench.
