IU football: Wide receiver Da’Shaun Brown in the transfer portal

A once promising prospect’s career will unfold elsewhere.

Wide receiver Da’Shaun Brown is in the transfer portal according to reports by both 247Sports and Rivals.

Brown played quarterback and defensive back at St. Catherine’s High School in Racine, Wisc.  He joined Indiana in the class of 2019 and the 6-foot-2 Brown was converted to wide receiver.

He did not play in 2019 but was a two-time offensive scout team player of the week. Going into the 2020 season Brown appeared to be on the right track.

“A guy that really flashed,” head coach Tom Allen said of Brown at fall camp in 2020.  “I have been very encouraged by him and his growth from last year to this year. He is a guy that I have high expectations for.”

Brown played as a redshirt freshman in 2020 wins at Rutgers and vs. No. 23 Michigan, but he suffered an ACL injury against the Wolverines that ended his season.

As a recruiting prospect Brown was a three-star, the No. 735 overall player, and the No. 43 athlete according to the 247Sports Composite.  He was ranked the No. 1 prospect in Wisconsin by Rivals.
