Marquise "Hollywood" Brown (born June 4, 1997) is an American football wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Oklahoma and was drafted by the Ravens in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Early years[edit]

Brown was born on June 4, 1997 in Hollywood, Florida. He played Pop Warner football in the same Florida league with Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson though the two were on different teams.[1] Brown attended South Broward High School in Hollywood, where he also ran track. As an 11th grader Brown ran the 100 meters in a time of 11.53 seconds at the Florida High Schools Athletic Association's 4A District 13 regional championship track meet.[2] He transferred to Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory School where in addition to playing football he also ran track, improving his 100 meter time to 11.05 seconds at the Florida High Schools Athletic Association's 2A District 15 regional championship track meet. [3][4]

College career[edit]

After not receiving any scholarships from Division 1 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.[5] After a year at College of the Canyons, Brown received several Division 1 scholarship offers, committing to Oklahoma.[6] During his first year at Oklahoma, Brown played all thirteen games, starting eight, and had a team high 1,095 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.[7] On January 2, 2019, Brown announced that he would forgo his final year of eligibility to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.[8]
