Brown, 5’11.68-215 pounds, was recruited by head coach Dana Holgorsen’s staff, and joined the Mountaineers in 2018. He played in 11 of 2018’s 12 games, kicking his time in the gold and blue off with 446 yards and four touchdowns on 91 attempts. The following three seasons amounted to a four-year career in Morgantown totaling 2,888 yards and 27 touchdowns on 620 rushes and 604 yards and five touchdowns on 86 receptions. His 2,888 yard career rushing threshold ranks him No. 6 in Mountaineer history to reach that milestone. He also leaves the Mountaineers ranked No. 6 in career rushes, No. 7 in rushing touchdowns, and No. 9 in total touchdowns.
His on-field statistics shaped Brown into a Big 12 Conference First Teamer in 2020 and a Fourth Team and Honorable Mention player in 2021. His back-to-back 1,000+ yard rushing seasons placed him as only the 12th player in West Virginia history to do so.
The Philadelphia, Pa. native’s senior year was capped off by forgoing a trip to Phoenix, Az. to the Guaranteed Rate Bowl.
Instead, he was selected to the 2022 East-West Shrine Bowl roster. Hundreds of coaches and scouts from all 32 teams were in attendance, and Brown was one of nine running backs who accepted invites to the prestigious Senior Bowl. His combine stats stuck at a 40-yard time of 4.64 seconds. At Pro Day, he opted to pass on giving his 40 another attempt, focusing instead on vertical jump (36.5), 2022’s Pro Day fastest 20-yard shuttle (4.21), and 3-cone (7.03).
