18 days to go, and on that note we highlight #18 in your programs, number [unspecified] in your hearts...Jermani Brown
#18, Jermani Brown, redshirt freshman, cornerback
High School: Midlothian High School, Midlothian, Virginia
How’d he get to The BlueTM?
Jermani came to the Blue the same way Rypien did: By being the highest rated player we had ever gotten on campus at his position. Jermani initially played high school ball in Calabasas, California before his family moved to Virginia and he played his final year of high school there. While at Midlothian, he earned a 4 star rating and top-30 (nationwide) position ranking from all of the major recruiting services. He turned down Michigan State, Arizona State, UNC, Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Washington State to come play for the Broncos. To say he was a highly sought-after athlete is an understatement.
It’s not his fault, but he shrunk in the last year. Well maybe he didn’t actually, but all the recruiting services listed him 2 inches taller and 2 pounds heavier than the Broncos’ information presently has him. So, either he shrunk or there was some embellishment applied to his dimensions during the recruiting process. Either way...Ant Man.
Full disclosure, celebrity lookalikes are a gift of mine. I’m very good at them...except this one. I had to plug Jermani’s image into a lookalike generator and it came back with a 54% match to Michael B. Jordan. So that’s what I’m going with! The son of Apollo Creed.
Coming off of a redshirt, there are currently none to speak of. That will change this year.
Jermani is starting the year listed as the man that will be backing up Avery Williams on the 2-deep. Even though he likely won’t start this year (barring injuries/suspensions/transfers), it would make sense that he will get into some games. How quality those reps will be at this point, though, is uncertain.
Is he on Twitter?
So it would appear. And he also has great taste in Boise State alternate uniforms.

Completely made up fact
Jermani was initially considered for the role of the exuberant Starburst lover in this commercial, but he didn’t make the cut because, frankly, he wasn’t weird enough.
