Colorado State Fall Camp: RB Dorian Brown Leaves Program Due To Grades

Running back Dorian Brown has left the Colorado State Rams football program before ever playing a game with the team due to poor grades, as his mother told Kelly Lyell of The Loveland, Co., native was hoping to improve his grade-point average through summer classes, but he apparently doesn't believe he's done enough to maintain his eligibility.

The Rams had tentatively been planning for a season without Brown given the uncertainty regarding his eligibility, but now we know that CSU will have to go in a new direction. Brown never appeared in a live game with the Rams, as he redshirted his freshman season after tearing his ACL as a high school senior in 2010.

Brown once earned accolades as an elite high school player in Colorado, compiling 1,975 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns as a high school junior. Those performances earned him opportunities at CSU, but injuries and academic issues have prevented him from ever taking advantage.
