Brown is a 6-foot-4 guard from Grand Rapids, Michigan, that is currently ranked as a two-star recruit in the Class of 2015. He’ll be spending a year in prep school before he ends up enrolling at Colorado.

Brown had also been recruited by the likes of Central Michigan, Akron and Illinois State, although Purdue had shown some interest as well.
