UConn Defensive Back Ty-Meer Brown Transfers To Boston College

Boston College adds depth to the secondary with a 5th year DB.

Boston College added some much needed veteran depth to the secondary this week when it was announced that the University of Connecticut safety Ty-Meer Brown had transferred to Boston College. He will be eligible to play immediately for the Eagles.

When one door closes another one opens I could definitely say I had 4 great years at the university of Connecticut met some great people and made memories I will never forget but today I signed a scholarship to Boston College where I will play I my last year of college football many people thought my football career was over, but it's just beginning #BostonCollege

Brown a 2* cornerback from McKeesport, Pennsylvania came to UConn in 2010, choosing the Huskies over Pittsburgh, Toledo, Akron, Kent St and Bowling Green. Brown was redshirted in 2010, playing on the scout team. In 2011 he was the starting safety in Don Brown's defense and finished the season with 45 tackles and three interceptions, including a pick six against West Virginia. In 2012 he finished the season with 49 tackles including one interception.

Last season Brown started seven games for the Huskies before missing the final five games with a neck/back injury. This spring he revealed that he was born with spinal stenosis, a disorder that restricts movement in the spinal canal. According to the article it didn't appear that Brown would be playing again for UConn, and was invited to take a role as a coaching assistant under Bob Diaco.

Although he played at safety at UConn, BC most likely will slot him back over in one of the cornerback positions because they are mostly set at safety with Sean Sylvia and Justin Simmons. Cornerback was a position of weakness for the Eagles last year, and adding some veteran depth that has experience under Don Brown's system will be a nice addition. Hopefully one of his teammates will be joining on the other side of the ball this summer.
