Brown’s listed measurements have him over 6-1 and weighing 200 pounds. Brown is rated 4-stars, the No. 8 quarterback, No. 10 California recruit and No. 76 prospect overall nationally in the Class of 2024 on the 247Sports Composite.

Brown has scholarship offers from 16 programs, including Alabama. David Shaw’s staff reached out back in July 2022. Landing the commitment is a huge win for Troy Taylor’s coaching staff.
