But the SSZ Zoneman Trophy Finalist is shining on the national stage. Over the weekend, Brown attended Nike’s “The Opening” regional showcase at Ohio State University. Competing against Division I caliber talent, Brown was named quarterbacks MVP.
As a result of his outstanding performance in Columbus, Brown is on his way to California this weekend to compete in Nike’s Elite 11 QB semifinals. 30 of the top high school quarterbacks in the nation will go through two days of on-field drills and seven on seven scrimmages to determine who will get an invite to the Elite 11 quarterback school, which features six days of intensive work led by Super Bowl winning signal caller and ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer. Brown confirmed his invite to the Elite 11 semifinals on his Twitter account:
Blessed to say I'm among the top 30 QBs in the country and will be in LA this weekend 🙏🏼
