#collegesafety | Penn State’s Ji’Ayir Brown Will Return in 2022 as One of the Big Ten’s Top Safeties


No one saw Ji’Ayir Brown coming, except for maybe Montclair State, which was the only school to offer him an opportunity to play football out of high school. So after Saturday’s Outback Bowl, the Penn State safety thanked the Red Hawks.

“I mean, nobody wanted to talk to me,” Brown said. “No offers. Montclair State believed in me, so shout-out to Montclair State, because they believed in me.”

Four years, a junior college and six Penn State interceptions later, Brown will enter the 2022 season as one of the Big Ten’s top safeties. He announced in December that he would return for his final season of college eligibility, establishing a secondary anchor with cornerback Joey Porter Jr. that the Lions desperately need.
