Today, Chief, a 6-1, 187-pounder who timed out at 4.53 in the 40 at Ole Miss' recent camp, wanted to talk about his decision.
"Ole Miss feels like home," said Chief. "I'm most comfortable with the coaches there. They showed me the love and treated me like family and that is what I was looking for in a college."
Brown is projected as a defensive back/wide receiver/tailback on the next level, but none of that seems to matter to him.
"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," he said. "This year at Winona I will play running back, wideout and strong safety. Where I play at Ole Miss is totally up to the coaches."
Chief, who was also recruited by Mississippi State, Alabama, Southern Mississippi, Arkansas State and Stanford, said his goal for 2010 is for his team to go all the way to the AAA state championship, but his personal goal is to get a bit faster.
"I want to get into the 4.4s consistently. I believe I can do that," Brown noted confidently.
Asked about his strength levels, Chief chuckled.
"I'm already pretty strong. I maxed at 385 pounds in the bench the last time I maxed," he declared.
Scouting reports on Brown indicate his versatility, athleticism and aggressiveness are his main attributes.
"I love to compete. I like to test my skills against great athletes and I like to win," he explained. "To do that, I'm very physical and very aggressive. That's the way I play the game."
Brown was asked if there was any message he would like to share with the Ole Miss faithful.
"Just tell them I am very excited to be in the Rebel family," he closed.
Chief Brown - a big get for the Rebel recruiting efforts.
