WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Standout high school running back Bryce Brown has signed a letter of intent with Tennessee.

The nation's top-ranked recruit announced his decision from the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in Wichita on Monday.

The Wichita East High School star had narrowed his final choices to Oregon, Miami, Tennessee, Kansas State and LSU.

He committed to Miami a year ago but chose not to accept the school's scholarship offer before it expired on Feb. 18. His brother is Miami linebacker Arthur Brown.

During his announcement, Bryce Brown first pulled out a Miami hat, then handed it to his brother before pulling out a Tennessee hat.

Rivals.com and several other services rated Brown the top recruit of this year's high school class.
