Malcom Brown continues to pull in personal accolades.
On Monday, the Texas defensive tackle was named first-team All-Big 12 by the Associated Press, leading a contingent of five Longhorns. Seniors John Harris (wide receiver), Cedric Reed (defensive end), Jordan Hicks (linebacker), and Quandre Diggs (cornerback) made second team.
TCU’s Trevone Boykin (offense) and Paul Dawson (defense) were named players of the year. Oklahoma’s Samaje Perine (offense) and Baylor’s Taylor Young (defense) are the league’s top newcomers.
Brown, a junior widely believed to be turning pro after this season, is in North Carolina for tonight’s presentation of the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. Brown is one of five finalists for the award, given annually to the nation’s top defensive player.
Brown is seventh in the Big 12 in both tackles for loss (12.5) and sacks (6.5).
