With 85 days left until Georgia Tech’s 2019 season begins, we take a look at freshman wide receiver Ahmarean Brown who will look to make an immediate impact in 2019.
In every recruiting class, there’s only one or two players usually who could truly make an instant impact in their freshman season. For Georgia Tech, that one player could be freshman wideout Ahmarean Brown.
The true freshman out of Tampa, Florida was rated as a notable three-star prospect and ranked as a top-750 player in the country according to 247Sports composite rankings. The Florida native ended up committing to the Jackets late in the last cycle, choosing them over Iowa State and Minnesota.That was after an original commitment to Maryland that he backed off of in November.
Brown then enrolled early on The Flats and put together a strong winter and spring session by all reports. In the spring game, Tech fans got their first look at the 5-foot-9 wide out and he was once again impressive, even if he didn’t put up the stats necessarily. He ended up finishing with two receptions for eight yards and one touchdown.
For Brown, the strong spring all but helped him cement a spot in the wide receiver rotation this upcoming season. With his elite speed, Brown has the chance to become an immediate impact player and potentially starter early on for the Yellow Jackets. Having basically a full offseason and spring to work with the program should only benefit Brown when it comes to summer/fall camp.
The Yellow Jackets of course will use his speed to their advantage and he’ll often be seen in the slot trying to get across the middle or take the top of opposing defenses. For us, one comparison as a player that comes to mind for Brown is current Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Desean Jackson.
It’s too early to say how big of an impact Brown will have and it will probably take a few games for the Tampa native to find his footing at the college level but once he does, he could turn into the ultimate weapon for the Yellow Jackets on offense and could be a potential x-factor. Obviously, only time will tell but there’s a lot to like about Brown entering his freshman seasn and his potential in 2019 and beyond.
