Name: Matt Brown
Weight: 220 lbs.
High school: Solon (OH) Solon
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #46
Last year: I did not rank Brown. He redshirted.
Brown was one of the most impressive preferred walk-ons in Michigan’s 2017 class. He posted 155 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, and 3 fumble recoveries as a senior in 2016. Brown made the switch to fullback at Michigan, and I might even be underrating this kid at #108. I think he has a good physical and mental makeup for the fullback position, but since he was mostly a defensive player in high school, he may take some time to get acquainted with all the offensive stuff. I expect Ben Mason and Ben VanSumeren to get the bulk of the snaps at fullback, but Brown looks like a guy who would have no problem running full speed into a linebacker or two.
Prediction: Backup fullback
