The Colorado Buffaloes have secured the commitment of wide receiver Tony Brown, a transfer from Texas Tech. Brown, who hails from La Miranda, California, played in 11 games for the Red Raiders in 2016, his Sophomore season. He had 27 catches for 378 yards in his Red Raider career.
Brown graduated high school in 2014 and chose Texas Tech over some prominent Big 12 and Pac-12 offers, including that of the Buffs. Of course, Brown was recruited by the one and only Darrin Chiaverini, the former Texas Tech receivers coach who is now the co-offensive coordinator and WR coach at Colorado. Brown was recruited to CU by Coach Chiv this time around.
At 6’1, 190-lbs., Brown is a big body who’s proficient at finding openings in the defense with his savvy route running. He’s also a smooth and strong runner after the catch. If this type of receiver sounds familiar, that’s because you’re accustomed to the Bryce Bobo, Kabion Ento-types the Buffs love.
Brown will likely redshirt this upcoming season and be eligible to play in the 2018 season, when he will be a Junior (RS).
