Georgia Tech football’s Ahmarean Brown is our third ranked most exciting freshman for the 2019 season.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pound wide out from Jefferson High School in Tampa, Florida is ready to make a major impact at the collegiate level in 2019 thanks to his explosive and deadly speed.
A three-star recruit, Brown was ranked as a top-700 player nationally and committed to the Yellow Jackets over several noteworthy programs though his final decision came down to Georgia Tech and the Iowa State Cyclones.
We’ve spoken at length this offseason about Brown and his potential, as the probable slot receiver could be a tremendous difference maker on offense and one that opens up the offense for Georgia Tech.
A player like Brown is one that Georgia Tech’s entire offense can be focused around and one that the Jackets offensive coaching staff should look to give as many touches as possible throughout both a game and a season. He’s simply a talent you can’t put too waste.
Brown had a strong spring for the Jackets after being one of three early enrollees from the 2019 recruiting class. He followed up spring practices by looking strong in the Jackets spring game including scoring a touchdown in his efforts. He only racked up a handful of receiving yards but he looked pretty good for only beginning to adjust to the game at the college level.
This upcoming season, Brown should see heavy playing time and could be an outright starter to begin their 2019 campaign. The expectations for Brown should be high but also be realistic. It’s a lot to ask for if fans want Brown to have a similar impact to that of Purdue’s Rondale Moore but a sizeable impact should still be made. The Jackets could also decide to put him back in kick and punt return situations at times throughout the season, though rising sophomore y Thomas should have those duties locked down.
Overall, Brown is a player that can be dynamic, game changing, and overall exciting for fans to watch. He has the potential to be a focal point of the offense over the next four years on The Flats and should be a player fans pay to see week in and week out. If all goes well, Brown could be a player who is in and out in three years.
