Terence Brown was a mainstay on BYU’s offensive line from 2009-2011, earning 39 starts for then-Cougars head coach Bronco Mendenhall. Fast forward a decade, and Brown was in contact with his former coach regarding another offensive line prospect … his brother, Joe Brown.

Mendenhall, who is entering his sixth season as University of Virginia football head coach, and UVA offensive line coach Garett Tujague expressed interest in the younger Brown, a class of 2022 prospect out of Lone Peak High School in American Fork, Utah. Asked what stood out to the UVA coaches about his ability, Joe said: “The nastiness they saw in the film and my athleticism.”

The 6’3”, 285-pound rising senior was offered an opportunity to visit UVA and perform in front of the Cavalier coaches in person on June 3. He took advantage, earning a scholarship offer “following a great workout with Coach Tujague.” The next day, Brown earned an offer from NC State following a workout while on a visit in Raleigh.
