Ole Miss signee says 'it's personal' against Mississippi State
Ole Miss wide receiver signee AJ Brown isn’t too shy about his feelings for Mississippi State.
Brown was critical of Dan Mullen following National Signing Day, and he later deleted a tweet directed at Mullen.
“I’m the bad guy of Starkville now … Ask coach Mullen how many times he came and saw me I can count on one hand. I could careless honestly.”
Brown followed it up with this:
Yall can call me names or whatever but I made this decision for me . Remember… For the ones who put me last are going to feel me first .😝💯

Brown, who lettered at Starkville High School and was rated as the No. 5 WR according to 247Sports Composite, chose rival Ole Miss instead of the Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide this past recruiting cycle, and he says “it’s personal” against Mississippi State in 2016, according to Scout.com. His freshman goals are quite simple.
“I want to be a Freshman All-American, period,” Brown told Scout.com. “I want to have a breakout game against Florida State. I especially want to have one against Mississippi State. I want at least four touchdowns against them. It’s personal.”
Brown is a big-time player at 6-foot-1, 220 pounds, and he certainly could have a big future in Oxford, especially with the quarterback talent already on campus.
“My size and strength allows me to be more physical than anyone I go up against,” he said. “I can catch the ball in traffic and make tough catches. I have really strong hands. Just being a competitor at the highest level. I love to lay out defenders while blocking too. Truthfully, I get more pleasure out of pancaking someone that anything else. I just love going up against the best defensive backs in the country. It raises my level of play. I just like to compete.”
Brown will play both football and baseball for the Rebels. You can read the full interview here.
