Cotton Bowl 2012: Arthur Brown Returning For Senior Season To Kansas State

Bill Snyder already has a minor reason to celebrate even before the Cotton Bowl game is played. That’s because junior linebacker Arthur Brown will be returning for his senior season instead of declaring for the NFL Draft.

While his stock would be lower than most who declare early, it’s possible that Brown would still be chosen. Yet he believes the best move for him is to finish his college career at Kansas State.

“I’m confident I will be back,” said Brown. “I feel like it will give me another opportunity to grow as a player and a leader. It will be great for our team for me to come back with all the other guys coming back. No, my decision is to come back and just to be part of the team. I find great value in being part of the team. I’m very team-oriented.”

Brown was the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year and turned heads with his play this year that included 95 tackles, 2 sacks and 1 interception.
