Bulldogs get 'firm' commitment from Lake Marion's Alex Brown
March 6, 2014By Lake Gators of Lake Marion High School
Lake Marion defensive back Alex Brown will make his college selection official at 3:30 p.m. this afternoon when he signs with South Carolina State.
It's a decision the Gator senior remained unwavering on even as the program struggled with the tragic, on-campus shooting death of defensive lineman Brandon Robinson
"I feel as though people all over the world are having those type of incidents," he said. "You wouldn’t think it would happen close to home, but if you like the campus and the school, then you should go."
Brown rushed for 950 yards and five touchdowns and caught 26 passes for 588 yards and seven scores as a senior for the Gators. He also had 62 tackles on defense, where he’s expected to compete for a position in a Bulldog secondary which lost three starters to graduation.
Georgia Southern and Elon had also apparently offered Brown, but he opted to stay in Orangeburg County.
