2018 Season Countdown: #108 Matt Brown

2018 Season Countdown: #108 Matt Brown


May 9, 2018

Name: Matt Brown
Height: 6’0″
Weight: 220 lbs.
High school: Solon (OH) Solon
Position: Fullback
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

    When you post vitals for this series, I assume that they come directly from mgoblue.com. Do we know when they were taken?

    I’m pretty sure I’ve asked this one before, I must not have been listening.

      Yes, I do get them straight from MGoBlue.com. I do not know when some of them were taken. Usually, numbers for guys in the first year or two seem pretty unreliable, because they seem to take those numbers from recruiting sites.

You must belogged in to post a comment.
