Bobcats' Brown declares for NFL Draft
Texas State graduate senior tight end Keenen Brown announced his decision to declare for the NFL Draft on Wednesday.
Brown, who played one season for the Bobcats after transferring from Oklahoma State, was Texas State’s leading receiver in 2018. Brown hauled in 51 passes for 577 yards and five touchdowns during his lone season in San Marcos.
“It is with the love and support of my family, and friends that I am able to make this difficult yet important decision,” Brown said in note he posted on Twitter. “When Coach (Everett) Withers recruited me to Texas State University from Oklahoma State, I was fortunate in knowing that I was going to be in the best hands both academically and athletically.”

The NCAA recently gave Brown a clock-extension, which would’ve allowed the fifth-year tight end to return to Texas State for an additional season in 2019. Brown, however, will forego his extra year of eligibility.
Brown was placed on the All-Sun Belt first team and Pro Football Focus named him a first team All-American.
“My time at Texas State University has been a blessing - both on and off the field - as the memories that I have shared with my teammates, coaches and the fans will be with me forever,” Brown wrote.
