Originally from the Atlanta area, Brown was long thought to be headed to either Alabama or Georgia. He also had offers in hand from Mississippi State and Tennessee, among many others.

Instead, Brown will graduate from Lanier High School in a few months and then head to Auburn, where his 6-foot-4, 322 pound frame will be immediately welcome to the Tigers’ front seven.
