Arthur Brown once seemed destined to be labeled a recruiting bust.
But after two forgettable seasons at UM, Brown has turned into one of the nation’s top middle linebackers at Kansas State.
If you’re reading this, you know Brown’s story. A Parade All-American and a member of the USA Today All-USA team in 2007, Brown barely played and never cracked the two-deep depth chart during his pair of entirely underwhelming seasons with the Hurricanes.
But after transferring to Kansas State in 2010, Brown went from bust to bust-out.
