At 6-foot-3 and 335 pounds, Brown picked up a very early offer from South Florida. Then, Miami came through with an offer right around the time he attended UM's recent Junior Day.
That was all he needed. Brown announced his commitment to the Canes on Wednesday night.
"I just committed to the University of Miami," Brown said. "I went to speak with Al Golden, James Coley, Paul Williams and Art Kehoe. They were telling me they watched my film and liked me and said they wanted me to be a Cane. Honestly, I was happy because it's the home team."
Brown, who says he actually grew up a Michigan fan, projects as an interior offensive line prospect for the Hurricanes.
Brown was Miami's second commitment of the night, joining Bradenton Manatee standout defensive tackle Ryan Fines.
