Scout Eval: Brown when healthy last season was impressive. He is an explosive linebacker can play sideline to sideline. He moves very well and he impressed Scout with his ability to drop into coverage at the Under Armour Combine in Orlando in January too. Elite physically with legit 4.5 speed and great frame. Led the Norland defense to state title game as a junior and really came on down the stretch.
