Marquise "Hollywood" Brown (born June 4, 1997) is an American football wide receiver for the Oklahoma Sooners. He is also the cousin of NFL Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Antonio Brown.

College career[edit]

After not receiving any scholarships from Division one schools, Brown signed with the College of the Canyons for the 2016 season. Because California Junior colleges do not offer sports scholarships, Brown worked at Six Flags Magic Mountain to make ends meet.[1] After a year at College of the Canyons, Brown received several division 1 scholarship offers, committing to Oklahoma.[2] During his first year at Oklahoma, Brown played all 13 games starting 8, and had a team high 1095 receiving yards, becoming the 8th all time receiver in single season yards. He also posted 265 yards against Oklahoma State, an Oklahoma record for receiving yards in a single game.[3]
