His Recruiting Story
Fremont Ross is a high-school that has produced lots of big time names in the Big Ten. Ohio State's Bob Brudzinski, and names that should be familiar to Wolverines fans like Rob Lytle, and Charles Woodson. Now it appears the Little Giants have cranked out another one in Greg Brown. Greg is dynamic and versatile enough that Michigan State, Iowa, and LSU, had been showing early interest; and Central Michigan had also offered prior to his relatively quick decision to pull the trigger and commit to Michigan.
Greg plays receiver, running back, cornerback and participates in both the return and coverage units. He's also an excellent student and is expected to be Michigan's only early enrollee in the 2011 recruiting class.
His senior season was highlighted by four receiving touchdowns, six rushing touchdowns, and numerous breakups on defense.
His Commitment Comments
"I just like the Michigan environment. I talked it over with my mom; I feel it's the right decision for me."
Simply put Brown is tenacious, aggressive, cocky and plays with a swagger that has been missing in the UM secondary for several years. He has decent height and good body length. He has excellent hands and makes good plays on the ball. His footwork, hips and movement have improved greatly over the past two years, and as a senior Brown was not tested much on the defensive side of the ball.
