Penn State Safety Ji’Ayir Brown Accepts 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl Invite

On Sunday, Penn State safety Ji’Ayir Brown accepted an invite to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl. This comes after Penn State completed its regular season with a win over Michigan State when he recorded seven tackles and a quarterback hurry.

Brown has had a successful senior season, picking up 66 tackles (50 solo), three interceptions, two forced fumbles and four pass breakups.

Brown is a leader for Penn State, and could be considered for first-team All-Big Ten safety. As a leader, Brown helped bring along younger safeties safeties such as Zakee Wheatley and Jaylen Reed.

Brown was mentioned as one of Bruce Feldman’s “freaks” before the start of this season, landing at No. 69 on the list.

Last offseason, Brown ran a 3.99 shuttle, a 4.44 40-yard dash, bench pressed 370 pounds and recorded a 345-pound power clean that shows that he has the requisite attributes to be an impact player in the NFL.

The 5-foot-11, 202-pound safety played junior college football at Lackawanna College before transferring to Penn State. He primarily played special teams in 2020 and worked his way to playing alongside JaQuan Brisker in the starting lineup the next year. In 2021, Brown finished with six interceptions to tie for the national lead.

The Reece’s Senior Bowl will take place on February 4, 2023, in Mobile, Alabama.
