For some reason I failed to write up a commitment post for Brown when he committed back in September of 2009. That's probably because I was super busy right at the beginning of football season, but now I have nothing to link to. Crap.
Brown enrolled early back in January, and that ought to give him a leg up on some of his defensive back classmates. Early reports from spring practice weren't exactly glowing, but he started to gain some steam as the spring session continued. Brown played a fair amount in the spring game, and reviews of his performance were mixed. He had good coverage at times, bad coverage at times, and wasn't particularly effective supporting the run. Overall, though, he did about as well as one could expect of a freshman early enrollee.
With the return of three starting cornerbacks (Troy Woolfolk, J.T. Floyd, Courtney Avery) in the fall and some more talented classmates hitting the field in August, Brown's chances of making a major impact this fall are slim. He might play against the MAC teams on the schedule, but regular special teams duty might even be a stretch.
Prediction: Backup cornerback
