Taylor Brown Commits to West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers football team continues to compile talented recruits!

Moments ago, TAYLOR BROWN, a 6’3 250 pound defensive lineman from Upper Marlboro, Maryland, became the 13th member of the 2025 class, announcing on social media that he is committing to play for the Mountaineers

Brown, who had offers from Buffalo, James Madison, Marshall, Memphis, Pittsburgh and Temple, is the 62nd rated defensive lineman in the 2025 class nationally and the 16th best recruit in the state of Maryland.

According to national analyst Hudson Standish, Brown is a “combative interior defensive line prospect who can use his acceleration to blow past offensive linemen and his lower body strength to anchor against the run. Size has not been verified but is believed to be hovering around 6-foot-3, 250 pounds.

Brown appears to have the frame capacity to effectively add mass in a collegiate strength and conditioning program. Lack of length measurements at this stage of the evaluation process is not ideal. Fantastic multi-sport athletic context as a state qualifier (25-2 record) wrestler and All-County catcher on the baseball diamond. Should have the versatility to line up across multiple spots on the defensive line, but likely finds a home as a bouncy three-technique with serious pass rushing upside. Should be viewed as a potential multi-year contributor at the Power Four level with plenty of developmental upside.”
