Ross Dellenger of The Advocate originally reported that Brown was transferring. Brown’s father, George Sr., spoke about the decision to The Advocate on Monday.
“He felt better to go with another staff and go play somewhere else. He’s not mad at LSU. LSU is a great school, great place to be. We love LSU. I’m not the one playing. My son decided he wanted to be somewhere else. He didn’t feel that was the place for him. We don’t have an issue. We love coach Miles and all of the staff there. He just decided that he would take his talents other places.”
247 Sports rated Brown as a 3-star recruit out of Winton Woods High School (Cincinnati) in 2015. He redshirted last season and didn’t play a snap. Brown will have to sit out this season, but he’ll have three years of eligibility remaining at Miami.
