Florida cornerback Solomon Brown is the latest prospect to commit to the Minnesota Golden Gophers during what has turned out to be a fortuitous weekend for head coach P.J. Fleck and his staff. Brown represents the fifth commitment from today alone.

Brown is as versatile a defensive back as you’re going to find, and I am sure that is part of the appeal for Fleck and defensive backs coach Jahmile Addae. He is physical enough to be a safety — and likes to lower the boom — but also possesses the speed and quickness to succeed as a cornerback. I could also see the staff utilizing Brown at the nickel position. And there’s a sort of “lunch pail” mentality apparent from watching his film. There’s one play — and I’m surprised he included it at all — where he misses the tackle but then gets up and ends up chasing down the ball carrier from behind about forty yards down the field.
