An Ohio prep product, Brown attracted national recruiting attention and wound up on the West Coast at Loyola Marymount, where he struggled his first two seasons, with just three extra-base hits in his first 210 at-bats. His plus arm and sub-2.0 second times to second base kept him in the lineup regularly, and Brown's solid (.277, 3 HRs) performance in the Cape Cod League put him back on the draft map. He adjusted his stance entering his junior year, narrowing his base and adopting a style akin to Justin Turner of the Dodgers, with a pronounced leg kick that helped unlock some of his raw power. He was the Lions' top hitter for average and power all season, leading the team in home runs and doubles. Brown's 6-foot-3, 215-pound body is sturdy enough for him to handle the catching load, though he needs to improve his blocking and receiving to handle higher-level pitching. He's shown the ability to make adjustments and has the athleticism to be an intriguing college-catching option.
