Brown was a former 4-star WR from the 2022 class per the 247Sports Composite. 247Sports ranked him as the No. 13 WR and No. 2 player from his home state of Illinois.
The Hawkeyes sent him an offer along with B1G programs like Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Penn State, and Wisconsin.
While Ferentz has brought in talent via the portal, he has lost some as well. Wideouts Arland Bruce IV and Keagan Johnson will be playing for different teams in 2023. Bruce committed to Oklahoma State, while Johnson chose Kansas State.
Brown appeared in four games while in Columbus this season. The Ohio State depth chart at the WR position was stacked with Marvin Harrison Jr. and Emeka Egbuka as two of the main pass catchers.
It looks like Brown will be heading from Columbus to Iowa City.
