In 26 career games with the Spartans, Brown tallied 54 tackles, seven interceptions, nine pass breakups, and two sacks. His 186 career interception return yards are eighth in Michigan State history. In 2020, Brown was a second-team All American and a first-team All-Big Ten selection.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Brown has the ball skills and experience to play as both a slot and outside corner and possess solid tackling traits. He will join former Michigan State teammate Justin Layne in the Steelers’ cornerback room.
