Another new Husky?

There is according to Greg Biggins at ESPN.com, who is reporting today that lineman Ma-autua Brown of Paramount, Calif., has committed to UW as part of the Class of 2011.
The story says the 6-5, 295-pounder could play on either side of the ball, either as a tackle on offense or end or tackle on defense.
I can’t find a lot on him — his ESPN profile doesn’t include much — but this LA Times story last summer said he could become the best OL in the southern California area in 2010. This story also had a brief overview of his prospects heading into last season. (And here’s his Scout.com profile as that network has also confirmed the commitment of Brown, though I note Scout lists Brown at just 6-2 — and actually have since changed it to 6-5 since I first wrote this.)
Obviously, he sounds like the kind of prospect UW needs to get as the Huskies continue to try to rebuild both sides of the line moving forward. Biggins’ story, however, notes that Brown has a lot of work to do in the classroom.
He’s the fourth known commit for the Class of 2011, joining RB Brendon Bigelow of Fresno, safety Evan Zeger of Las Vegas (and formerly of Skyline High) and fullback Elijhaa Penny of Norwalk, Calif.
