Earlywine on Brown: “The addition of Rocky continued the rebuilding of our front line with another player with length who can play and defend multiple positions. He has a terrific motor, an aggressive personality, and the ability to score in the paint and at the free throw line. Rocky comes from a winning program and was instrumental in the success of his team – both of which added to how much we like him. Also, the fact that he was very well-coached in high school by a former college coach will quicken his transition to playing Division I basketball.”
High School: Graduated from Central High School in 2010. Brown led Central in points (20.2), rebounds (7.3), steals (3.5) and blocks (3.1) as a senior to lead the Grizzlies to a 21-5 record.
