StateFans Take- Brown may be one of the more under-rated players in the state currently. He has a terrific blend of size and athleticism and should see his offer list expand throughout the year. The connections with his father who coaches football is always a plus. It's difficult to say if Brown will ultimately play WR in college but his measurables are intriguing. Some have hinted that he could project as a LB while some think, if he were to add size, could project as a pass-catching TE. As for State, we're sure they'd love to get him into camp but if not, will certainly be keeping a watchful eye on this talented prospect all year.
