Analysis: Greg Brown was the first commit to the Wolverines for the 2011 class back in early September of 2009. Brown new at that time that the Wolverines were destined for him and decided to avoid the stress and hassle that comes with being recruited by major programs in college football. He visited Syracuse back in October of 2010, but was still set on joining the Wolverines and is already enrolled this semester at Michigan. While Brown played both WR and CB in high school, he projects to mostly play on the defensive side of the ball. Of course, since he hails from the same high school as former Heisman winner, Charles Woodson, don’t rule out him trying to do the same if Coach Hoke will let him. Brown has decent size and speed for CB, but is still a pretty gifted athlete. He would likely benefit from a redshirt, but with low numbers in the secondary, it’s possible Brown will be needed for the 2011 season. His instincts aren’t off the charts, but with being the only early enrollee this year, he will be ahead of everyone else who joins the team in the summer. He’s not afraid to lay a hit either if you take a chance at looking at his videos below. I’m not sure if he’s the next Charles Woodson, as it’s pretty difficult to be compared with one of the greatest, but he should be a solid contributor for the Wolverines throughout his career.
