Kansas State LB Arthur Brown was the only Big 12 football player named to the National Football Post Preseason All-American Team on either side of the ball.

In another sign of how high he is regarded nationally, Kansas State LB Arthur Brown was named to the National Football Post's Preseason All-America Team on Wednesday.

Brown, a 6'1 230 ILB from Wichita who transferred back to Manhattan after beginning his college career at the University of Miami, was the only Big 12 player named to the team on either side of the ball.

He was the lynchpin of the Kansas State defense in 2011, racking up 101 tackles, including 9.5 for loss, as well as 2 sacks and 1 INT.

He would likely have been selected in last year's draft, but he elected to return to school where he has the chance to play his way into an early-round selection in 2012.

Brown was the first five-star recruit from the state of Kansas, and after a tumultuous start to his college career, he has lived up to the potential the recruiting services saw in him and has a chance to go down as one of the best defensive players in Kansas State history.
