Brown asks out of Clemson commitment
Brown, who signed with ACC power Clemson in February, will not qualify academically for the Tigers. Rather than continue to take high school-level courses this summer, Brown has decided to ask out of his commitment to Clemson.
Instead, he intends to report to Marshall next month.
As a Prop 48, Brown (6-foot-5, 280 pounds) would not be able to play this fall. However, he can arrive on campus as early as Aug. 5 if Clemson grants his release soon.
As of Friday, the school had not granted the release.
If Clemson does not make a decision soon, Brown will not be able to enroll at Marshall until Aug. 20, the first day of classes.
