Four-star wide receiver Bralon Brown is an impressive player. The wide receiver has shined for St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, a school that has a history of producing NFL top-tier talent like Nick and Joey Bosa as well as the sons of Michael Irvin and Jason Taylor. Bralon also has his heart set on the NFL.
Brown's father, Donald Brown, played in the NFL and was a fifth-round pick in 1986, so the talent in this family is real. After weighing various offers, Brown decided to commit to head coach Lane Kiffin and the Ole Miss Rebels in 2021.

Brown received quite a bit of interest from schools like Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Miami, Penn State, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin. In the end, he became one of the marquee signees of Kiffin's recruiting class.
"I ain't gonna lie, this is crazy."

Ole Miss is not a team that rises to the top of the SEC every year, so the team must be able to recruit well to compete with the likes of Alabama and LSU each season.
In Kiffin's first year with the team, the Rebels went just 5-5, but that was an improvement on their previous few seasons, so perhaps Kiffin has some momentum on his side going forward. Recruits like Bralon Brown should help.

Brown's route running is superb, and his 6-foot-3 size makes it so he's able to get past defenders, even if he isn't necessarily the fastest guy on the field. Before joining one of Florida's best high school programs, he played for Hollywood's Chaminade-Madonna High School, where he scored seven touchdowns.
The 247Sports Composite labels brown a four-star prospect, and the Rebels now possess the seventh-best recruiting class in the SEC. That may not be high praise, but adding Brown, an Under Armour All-American, is only going to help.
Bralon Brown has NFL aspirations, and he believes that moving to Oxford will help get him there. If he can succeed, he'll become the second member of his family to play professionally, joining a truly impressive club.
