Gregg Brown Leaves Michigan Football Program

Gregg Brown has left the Michigan Wolverines football program. The freshman had three appearances this season, two of which came on special teams duty.

Gregg Brown was not expected to make a huge impact on the Michigan Wolverines football program this season, but he did expect to make some sort of impact after arriving on campus early and being the only early enrollee this season. Brown wasn't able to crack the team's defensive rotation this year, however, and the team has confirmed he left the program.

Brown was ranked as the No. 35 overall cornerback by ESPN in his recruiting class and was an All-Ohio first team member as a senior in high school. Those accolades didn't help him in Ann Arbor, however, as he appeared in just three of the Wolverines games this season -- two on special teams and one as back-up cornerback.

Brown joins linebacker Kellen Jones, offensive lineman Tony Posada and tight end Chris Barnett as freshman that have left the program this season, according to Kyle Meinke. Head coach Brady Hoke did not elaborate on the reasons Brown had for leaving the program.

It isn't exactly a big problem that Brown has left, but it doesn't look good for future recruiting classes that Hoke has already lost four members of this year's class.
