Colleyville Heritage WR Kam Brown, a 4-star Texas A&M commit, helps the Panthers beat Euless Trinity.

Kameron Brown, who’s committed to Texas A&M, finished his four-year career at Colleyville Heritage last month.

The 4-star wide receiver is the son of former TCU and Dallas Cowboys defensive back Larry Brown, who won three Super Bowls and was named Super Bowl XXX MVP.

Brown recorded 30 catches for 537 yards and seven touchdowns for the Panthers this season. He made 147 catches in his career for 2,570 yards and 42 TDs.

“Kam had a great career at Colleyville Heritage. It fell a bit short his senior year. He played about half the games because of some injuries, but he’s all healed up,” his dad said. “It’s been a fun ride and it flies by. It’s every kid’s dream to go to college and play, and he’s been blessed and fortunate to have an opportunity to play at the next level.”

Larry Brown went to high school in Los Angeles, where he starred in football and track. After no offers and two years at Los Angeles Southwest College, Brown transferred to TCU.

He earned MVP honors during the 1990 Blue-Gray Football Classic.

Brown said the recruiting process is night and day nearly 30 years later.

“It’s all the social media and rankings,” he said. “When I came out of high school, there were no ranking systems, no 247Sports or Rivals and no all-star games. The kids now have it made.”

Kam Brown will head down to College Station and enroll early.

“He wanted to get down there, take classes and start the process,” Larry said. “The transition from high school to college is different and he wanted to learn from it. He did everything he could the last four years to get there early and we’re happy for him.”

He committed to A&M in February after previously being committed to UCLA.

“It’s a great staff. They’re very honest and work hard,” Larry said. “They know what type of kids they’re looking for the program and Kam fits that mold. We couldn’t be happier and we think Kam made a great decision.

“The thing about recruiting is you don’t know what’s going to happen in college football. I don’t think anyone thought Urban Meyer was going to step down. The movement is so frequent. Kam was originally committed to UCLA and then they fired the whole staff so that changed things for him. Do your homework and due diligence and hopefully you don’t have to deal with too many changes, but it’s a process and part of the business.”

The Aggies are 8-4 under Jimbo Fisher and will play North Carolina State in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla. on Dec. 31.

“I’m excited about the transition of Jimbo Fisher,” Larry said. “They’re a very talented and young team. I think they’re the No. 2 recruiting class in the country and shooting for No. 1 in a couple weeks. There’s a lot to be excited about in Aggie Land.”
