Future Husky: Derrick Brown


Height– 6’3
Weight– 220
Position– Quarterback
HS Stats– At Vista Murrieta in Murrieta, CA, Brown had 1568 passing yards with 18 touchdowns and he also had 18 touchdowns on the ground with almost 1000 rushing yards.

Style of Play– He is an athlete. That has dual-threat ability and easily has the potential to play almost anywhere on the field. It will be intriguing to see what UW does with him.

Strengths– He has a strong arm and fast feet. He is able to create offense through the air or on the ground. He is strong and powerful, especially when running. He was able to use his arm effectively in high school and can use some of his natural ability at UW regardless of the position he plays.

Weaknesses– As a QB he sometimes lacks the patience to remain in the pocket and tends to scramble too soon. This is a normal weakness for a dual threat ability, they rely too much on their feet instead of waiting for the whole play to develop.

Potential– He is rated as a 3 star prospect at the QB position but has the ability to be an athlete at any number of positions. Don’t be surprised if you hear his name called at different positions throughout his career.

Projected Usage- This remains to be determined and it all rests on where UW wants to play him.
