Former Royal Palm star Zach Brown resurfaces at Pitt 

By Jeff Greer

Former Royal Palm Beach standout running back Zach Brown transferred from Wisconsin late last month and has resurfaced at Pitt.

Brown rushed for 1,152 yards and 11 touchdowns in three seasons at Wisconsin, but he sat out the 2010 season as a redshirt. He was a huge star at Royal Palm Beach, running for 1,664 yards and 15 touchdowns and catching 23 passes for 268 yards for two touchdowns in 2006, his senior season.

He was recruited by Pitt when he was in high school, and also considered Miami (Ohio) and Miami as transfer options along with Pitt. He’ll give the Panthers some needed depth at the running-back position, though star back Ray Graham is slated to be the starter in 2011.
