Jalen Brown sees time on field in secondary

Notre Dame senior cornerback Jalen Brown had his best year as a sophomore in 2012.

Tall and quick, the 6-foot-2, 202-pound Brown was a well-regarded recruit coming out of MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, where he starred in football and track-and-field.

Brown didn’t play his freshman year at Notre Dame in 2011, but he appeared in seven games his sophomore season in 2012. Brown recorded his two career unassisted tackles that season, one apiece against Purdue on Sept. 8 and Michigan State on Sept. 15.

As a junior in 2013, Brown played against Michigan on Sept. 7 and against Air Force on Oct. 26 but he did not record a tackle on the season.

An assisted tackle and pass breakup in Notre Dame’s 38-0 win against Wake Forest on Nov. 17, 2012, round out Brown’s career stats.

He has not played this season.

Brown is enrolled in the College of Arts and Letters as a sociology major.

Notre Dame declined to make him available for an interview.
