  • "They were telling me that they were going to have a big fight over me for defense or offense," said Brown. "They don't really know [what I'll play]; they just keep telling me to be ready to play and expect to see the field."

    Brown, a 5-foot-10 190-pound athlete from Maple Heights (Ohio), wouldn't mind playing either wide receiver or defensive back, but would prefer to be on offense.

    "I like the ball in my hands, but I also like defense," said Brown. "But, I guess you can say receiver [is my preference].

    "I just want to get on the field however much I can and help the team."

    There have also been discussions regarding the use of Brown's speed on special teams as well.

    "They've talked to me about punt return and kick return," said Brown. "That's my favorite thing to do in football, because I get the ball in my hands."

    Brown keeps in contact regularly with both Williams and Pagano. Earlier this week he spoke with Williams.

    "He was telling me not to expect to redshirt," said Brown. "He said to come out here with my mind set on football and my grades, and the rest will take care of itself."

    In the mean time, Brown is running spring track and following UNC's prepared workout routine in the weight room.

    Brown participates in the 100-meter dash, 4x100 relay, and 4x200 relay at Maple Heights. At a recent meet, Brown recorded 100-meter times of 10.7 and 10.6 seconds.

    Brown, who plans to arrive at UNC on June 18th, is awaiting the results of the ACT he took in early April to determine his academic qualifying status. He said he is also talking an extra math course as insurance.
