He is also a member of the academic program Prep for Prep, which provides opportunities for minorities in New York City and its surrounding area to attend elite independent schools.

CareerEdit

Brown shot into the spotlight after starring opposite Sean Connery in the 2000 film Finding Forrester. He had neither professional nor amateur acting experience prior to taking this role. Brown tried out as an extra after finding a flyer hanging on a bulletin board in his school. Despite his lack of previous experience, he was given the lead role of Jamal Wallace.

In 2005, he played the role of Kenyon Stone, a basketball player for the Richmond High School Oilers in Coach Carter, starring Samuel L. Jackson. He was one of the lead roles alongside Ashanti.

Brown played Ernie Davis in the film The Express. The film was a biopic of Davis, the first African American Heisman Trophy winner and Syracuse University alumnus. Production began in March 2007, and the film was released in October 2008. Brown's college football experience aided him in playing Davis, one of his biggest roles to date.
