Malcolm Brown is a fourth-year running back who has had good moments and moments where he seemed to get lost in the running back herd. He’s played 31 games for the Longhorns, with 21 starts. With new coach Mack Strong on board, he will have another chance to be “the guy” at Texas.
Brown was a prep All-American at Steele High School and a two time all-state selection. He finished his four-year career with 6,663 rushing yards (third-best in San Antonio history), 86 rushing TDs and 9.8 yards per carry. As a senior he rushed for 2,637 yards and 33 scores.
As a true freshman in 2011, Brown earned seven starts and played in 10 games. He won the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year award after leading the Longhorns with 742 yards and five scores on 172 carries.
Things changed in 2012. Brown played in eight games and got one start as he struggled with injuries throughout the campaign. Brown had a career high 143 all-purpose yards against Mississippi and 105 yards on 15 carries against Wyoming as season highlights.
In 2013, Brown got back in the groove a little, rushing for a team high 904 yards and leading the team in all-purpose yards with 1,099. He was a second-team All-Big-!2 choice at running back after posting five 100-yard rushing games and got the wheels really rolling the last eight games of the season when he posted a 105.1 ypg average. He currently ranks 17th on the Texas career rushing list (1,840 yards).
