All Irish: Jalen Brown

Texas defensive back Jalen Brown among four DB prospects in 2011 recruiting class.

Jalen Brown (CB – 6'1/186): Joins Josh Atkinson, Matthias Farley and Eliar Hardy as defensive back prospects in the 2011 class…Part of the late-July recruiting bonanza that netted three remaining verbal commitments (Aaron Lynch and Anthony Rabasa) on Friday, July 30…Has the size and instincts to play safety but with the Irish short on veteran cornerback depth, expect Brown and his classmates to get an early look on the outside.

Kelly recruiting profile: Skill
Returning cornerbacks: Robert Blanton, Gary Gray, Lo Wood (Note: Freshman wide receiver Bennett Jackson is reportedly moving to cornerback)
Returning safeties: Dan McCarthy, Zeke Motta, Jamoris Slaughter, Harrison Smith (Note: 2010 recruit Chris Badger will re-join the squad in 2012 after the completion of his religious mission).

Baumhower on Brown: Brown committed to the Irish without visiting campus. He'll be versatile enough where he could play either cornerback or safety.

Berk on Brown: Another guy who can play safety or corner, Brown will bring great physical skills to the Irish and provide depth early in his career. Impressed he made the choice of Notre Dame prior to visiting campus and then stuck with his decision.
