Brown made the announcement on Twitter.

"From my Pop Warner, middle school, and high school coaches, who have pushed and believed in me: thank you. To my personal trainer, classroom teachers, and employees at Jacksonville High, even if it was just saying good morning, I thank you," Brown said, also thanking God, his family, and his church family, among others.

Standing a 5-feet-10 and 166 pounds, Brown is a three-star athlete, according to 247Sports.com. Brown is ranked the No. 21 player from the Class of 2021 in North Carolina and the No. 29 athlete nationally.
