Oklahoma State football: Brodrick Brown reveals some dog

Ask Brodrick Brown about OSU's fastest cornerback and he'll point to himself, not teammate Justin Gilbert.

Brown is always competing.

“I don't know that anybody can outrun Justin,” said Cowboys defensive coordinator Bill Young. “But that shows you the kind of competitor Brodrick is.

“Everybody calls him ‘Bulldog.' I call him ‘Pit bull.' He's just so aggressive. I've never owned a pit bull, but I wouldn't want to get in a dogfight with a pit bull, would you?

“He's just so aggressive, reckless out there. He has no regard for his own safety.”

Young said he'll gladly keep both of his corners, at least until the NFL takes them away.

And both project to play at the next level.

“I'm the last guy to know if that's the case,” Young said, “but somebody's got to look at them. We're playing the best receivers in the country. And they're doing a good job against them, so I don't know what else you've got to do.”


In OSU’s scrimmage last week, the offense had the advantage after an evening of efficiency and big plays.

OSU coach Mike Gundy said that flipped Saturday, with the defense playing aggressively early in the Cowboys’ second scrimmage.

“Last week (the defense) started slow, and then the snowball got going downhill,” Gundy said. “They never could really do anything about it. (Saturday), they started faster and played well and forced a couple turnovers and got the momentum on their side.”

With classes beginning Monday, the two-a-day portion of camp is over. The Cowboys will have a mock game this coming Saturday before moving into game prep mode for the season opener against Savannah State on Sept. 1.
