"We talked earlier in the summer about some things he was going to need to do from a basketball standpoint, but he also has had some things off the court with his academics," said Holy Cross coach Milan Brown. "One of the [business] professors pulled me aside and said, 'He's absolutely going to be a star.' … [This is] what kids who go to Holy Cross do. They're going to play and be about academically trying to set themselves up for the future and where they're going to work. He goes just as hard going for 30 points as he does in [in the classroom]. He's done both. He's talked a lot about being good in both avenues."Devin Brown's status as one of Baltimore's top college basketball players certainly wasn't a given coming out of high school. He transferred to City from Calvert Hall at a time when the Knights were far from the powerhouse program they are today. As City's lone senior starter during the 2006-07 season, however, Brown led the Knights to a 20-5 record – its best mark since 1999. A first-team Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection, Brown averaged 20.5 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals.
