Mountain Pointe coach Norris Vaughan said Brown didn’t indicate to him where he might end up.

Brown had 50 career touchdown catches from 2010-13 at Mountain Pointe, helping the Pride capture the state championship his senior season.

He was a redshirt at Oregon his first year. He caught 17 passes for 307 yards and three touchdowns last season, including a career-best five catches for 97 yards against Arizona State. That was his second career start.
