On if LSU fans need to worry about him headed to the MLB "I really look forward to coming to campus. It’ll take something really special to get me out of the purple and gold I’ve always dreamed of".

We discussed high school baseball in SW Louisiaba and I asked the question, is there a better area of the country for HS baseball ? Brown replied " I don’t think there’s anything like it. Us (Sulphur), Barbe, and Sam Houston were all ranked nationally throughout the season and all finished in the top 25. Competition and the level of ball here is insane" On what he wants LSU fans to know about him "to know that they’re getting a player who will do whatever it takes to win and bring home a Natty." On what he is going to miss the most about his days of playing at Sulphur "Hanging out with all my friends that I’ve grown up with and being around my guys every day."
