On3 has Brown ranked as the No. 14 overall player and No. 2 wide receiver in 2022 (their top 20 players are 5-star recruits). Rivals has the Nashville (TN) product ranked No. 53 overall and No. 7 among receivers.

The 6-foot-1, 173-pound Brown has taken three visits, one being to Alabama and two to Ole Miss with Alabama being seen as the favorite to land Brown as of now.

Quarterback Will Levis threw for 367 yards and four touchdowns, with multiple passes going for 50+ yards through the air, more than the previous three seasons combined.
