Chris Brown

Observer Sports Staff | Wednesday, February 1, 2012

WR, ****, 180 pounds, 6-2

Hanahan High School

Hanahan, S.C.

While the Irish have churned out plenty of solid possession receivers, the offense has lacked a pass-catcher with blazing speed. Enter Chris Brown and his 40-yard dash time of 4.44.

Brown shot up recruiting boards across the nation toward the end of his high school career.

Though he missed half of his senior campaign because of a broken collarbone, Brown still had a productive high school career, including a junior season in which he recorded 52 catches for 1,105 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Brown has tremendous athleticism; in addition to his top-end speed, he has great jumping ability. Brown has the versatility to play in the slot or on the outside for Notre Dame.
