"Chief," as he's called, is well familiar with the Ole Miss coaches. But it never hurts to have even more interaction with those who you will be spending time with into the future.
"They just came in to see how things are going and if I am still committed," Brown said.
And he is. The Rebels remain a solid top choice, according to the Class 3A offensive player of the year in Mississippi as well as first-team All-State for all classifications at defensive back.
"I like a lot of things about it," Brown said of Ole Miss. "I like the coaching staff. I like Derrick Nix a lot.
"Ole Miss feels like home. I'm most comfortable there. They stuck with me and showed me the love. I knew they liked me, and that was important."
Brown will reciprocate the recent visit by the Rebel coaches by taking his official visit to Oxford on Jan. 21.
He said while he knows the campus and the people, he will again be looking to familiarize himself with his surroundings for the future.
"I've known the coaches a long time," Brown said. "I just want to take a look around and also have some time to get to know the players."
While his commitment to Ole Miss is strong, Brown said he has a couple of other visits lined up to Arkansas State and Auburn.
Brown said his grades are solid. "I had four As and one B last semester. I'm in good shape."
As a senior, Brown rushed for 2,173 yards and 28 touchdowns. But he said it is on defense, where he recorded 61 tackles, had eight interceptions, nine passes deflected, and three forced fumbles, that he believes the Rebel coaches may try him initially.
"I think they're going to try me out at safety first," said the versatile Brown. "Then they might move me over to the other side on offense at running back. They might try me at receiver.
"I just want to play. I don't care where the Ole Miss coaches put me. I really don't have a preference. Where I'm needed is my preference."
