dmitchell@ledger-enquirerMarch 14, 2013 

Carver defensive end Mekhi Brown received an offer from the University of Alabama last Friday, adding to his already impressive list of scholarship offers.

Brown, an elite prospect for the 2015 recruiting class, already claims offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Tennessee, among others.

Listed at 6-foot-6, 230 pounds on Scout.com, Brown's size is sure to attract more attention as he finishes his final two seasons with the Tigers.

This past season, he became one of the team's leading contributors on defense, particularly in a win at Peach County to clinch the region title.
