Spain Park (Ala.) wide receiver Phillip Brown was one of the top standouts at Western Kentucky's prospect camp over the July 20 weekend.

The 6-foot-4 wideout enjoyed getting to know the Toppers' coaching staff, among several other aspects of camp.

"I think it was a great camp," Brown said. "I learned some new techniques and new drills, I'm really excited I went.

"Coach (Lamar) Thomas was a really cool guy, just overall I had a good time."

With interest from Cincinnati, Tulane, Southern Miss, UAB and Middle Tennessee among others, how does the wide receiver feel about WKU?

"I really like it (WKU,)" Brown said. "At this point, I'm not ready to make any kind of decision, but I really like the coaching staff there.

"If it came down to it, they will definitely be a place I'd consider."

Besides his height and speed, Brown is gifted with several skills on the field that help him standout.

"I'm physical, I don't try to dodge any contact," he said. "I run pretty good routes too. I'm really working hard to keep getting better.

The Hoover, Ala. standout isn't certain of an exact timeline for his college decision yet.

But he does already know what he's looking for in a school.

"Really, my Dad tells me all the time 'love who loves me,'" Brown said. "So whatever coaching staff I feel like is going to give me 100 percent, somewhere I can feel like I have a family from home, that will probably be where I'll go.

"Education is important too, I want to be a nurse if football doesn't work out, so anywhere that can get me on the ground running with that."
