“I just feel like they presented the best opportunity for me to develop all my skills while I’m down there,” Brown said. “It’s also the best chance for me to make it to the NFL and reach all my dreams.”

UA head coach Nick Saban was happy to welcome Brown aboard despite not having the chance to meet with him in person yet. Offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, who has visited Brown at his school in Brooklyn, N.Y., was also excited about the new addition.
