Needless to say, our defensive secondary is in dire need for improvement. That may come in the form of our newest JUCO commit at safety, Derron Brown!

I'm proud to announce I've committed to the University of California Berkeley ! #GoldenBears— Derron R. Brown (@DerronBrown_) December 1, 2014
Check out Brown's highlights from his year at Mesa Community College at his Hudl page and we'll have a more in-depth look in the coming weeks.
Brown has three years of eligibility to play the next three seasons and should provide immediate depth at a position of need. He wasn't recruited much coming out of high school due to a smaller frame, but he's grown since then up to a 6'2, 195 pound frame with a 4.45 40 yard dash. That just screams safety, and the Bears could use plenty of depth at the position with Michael Lowe graduating and ... well, we need safeties. A lot of them. Preferably in bunches of three.
This is a good early offseason pickup, and hopefully the first of many.
Welcome to the 3rd-best global university, Derron!
