STARKVILLE | Mississippi State has perhaps its best depth at linebacker since Dan Mullen has been here, and so it’s expected to be a real strength for the defense this fall. We talked with several of those guys this morning after practice, the first of two for MSU today.
A couple of promising young LBs are Beniquez Brown and Richie Brown, who aren’t related but who have become very close. They’re both redshirt freshmen and are expected to be in the rotation this year, and they’re still going through the process of getting the playbook down pat to the point where they don’t have to think as much on the field.
So the Browns – who are roommates – talk about their progress, about the chance to play after redshirting, and about juice points. (By the way, love Richie’s tank top.)
