“He's made a great, great contribution, in many ways,” Stoops said. “His leadership, his attitude, how business-like he is and how he works.”
For his part, Brown was able to escape a program under harsh NCAA sanctions and finally be part of an offense better suited for his 6-foot-3, 219-pound frame and skill set.
Through 10 games at Oklahoma, he's already caught more touchdown passes (4) than he did over his three Penn State seasons combined.
He's also hauled in career-highs in receptions (47) and receiving yards (649).
Asked what he'll remember most about his time in Norman, Brown said, “Probably just how nice the people were here and how nice everyone made it for me given the situation. From teammates, to people at 7-11, to coaches.
“That's what I'm going to remember most.”
Iris Brown said she and her husband, Joel, are appreciative to everyone in Oklahoma for that kindness.
“The Sooner family has been wonderful and welcoming,” she said. “That's the thing you're hesitant about; ‘How is gonna be received, only spending one year there?'
“But I almost feel like he's been there more than one year. We feel like we've been part of the family for a while.”
