Welcome to our series chronicling the #22Bullies (The New South Florida) USF recruiting class of 2022. The series will breakdown every single recruit and transfer that signed/committed to officially become a part of Head Coach Jeff Scott’s third recruiting class. Help us welcome QB Byrum Brown to the Bulls!
QB Byrum Brown (Rolesville High School)
Committed to the Bulls since July 1st, Brown represents one of two quarterbacks added to the 2022 class. Brown is currently ranked as the 72nd best quarterback in the 2022 class by 247Sports.com, garnering offers from App State, Georgia State, Miami (OH), Old Dominion, Florida A&M and more during his recruitment. Brown enrolled with the Bulls in January.
Run the Tape:
Epitome of a dual-threat QB… dangerous as a passer AND runner who when given the chance to improvise will shred defenses one way or another. Arm strength is impressive, especially when throwing on the run and/or off-balance in the pocket. Playmaker at the position who will make the guys around him better. Can rip the ball downfield when given the opportunity to set his feet and throw from a proper base. Accurate passer who does a good job with ball placement. Pass-first QB who will work the pocket as necessary to make a play from it.
The three-year starter out of North Carolina put up eye-popping numbers in his final season at Rolesville, throwing for 43 TDs (3,800+ passing yards) with 13 rushing TDs (1,100+ rushing yards) to boot. Brown was one of those QBs that just got better and better as his high school career progressed and frankly was one of the best kept secrets in the 2022 recruiting class at the position. Look for Brown in Spring Camp as an early enrollee and don’t be surprised to see him have a Spring Game similar to what Timmy McClain had in 2021. Welcome to the Bulls Byrum!
