Shun Brown speeding into WR conversation

Shun Brown speeding into WR conversation

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The wide receiver room at Arizona might be packed but don't think the Wildcats are going to shun Vyron Brown.

The speedy freshman wide receiver from Shreveport, Louisiana appears ready to snatch playing time in his initial college season.

Wide receivers coach Tony Dews called Brown a "football player".

He certainly has the pedigree. His father has been an assistant coach at multiple stops in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.

Vyron Senior is currently tutoring the wide receivers at Texas Southern.

Vyron Junior, who goes by Shun, comes to Tucson after winning two consecutive Division III state championships for Calvary Baptist Academy.

He set a school record with 23 touchdowns as a senior while catching passes to the tune of 1.362 yards.

Most of those came from one-time UA commit Shea Patterson. The 2016 pro-style QB ultimately decided on Mississippi instead of Arizona but Brown did bring another Cavalier with him to Tucson; running back Orlando Bradford, who amassed over 3,400 yards in his career at Calvary Baptist.
