Brown received an offer form the Hurricanes just two weeks ago and didn’t take him long to make his decision. The 6’3, 338-pounder is from Hollywood, Florida and attends powerhouse Mirimar High School, home to several NFL players, including New York Jets’ quarterback Geno Smith.
Brown chose the Hurricanes over offers from The Marshall Thundering Herd, South Florida Bulls and Temple Owls among others.
He is considered the 53rd best offensive guard prospect, the 126th best overall prospect in Florida and 902 best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
3-star defensive tackle Ryan Fines also committed to the Hurricanes Wednesday.
The 6’3, 285-pound defensive tackle attends Manatee High School in Bradenton, Florida.
Fines is considered 50th best defensive tackle prospect, the 104th best overall prospect in Florida and the 797th best overall prospect in the class of 2015.
Fines chose the Hurricanes over the Bulls.
They become the Hurricanes’ fourth and fifth commitments.
