Prior to his time at Coppin State, Brown played at Baltimore City Community College where he was a Second Team JUCO Conference selection and was also named to the NJCAA All-Region pick.
Brown led Baltimore City CC to a 19-13 record while playing in 27 games averaging 11 points and eight rebounds per game. He would also go on to average 1.3 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from the field. He recorded nine double-doubles, 16 double-figure scoring games and 10 double-figure rebounding outings.
"I'm really excited at the opportunity to finish the last year of my career as a Chanticleer," Brown said. I believe I will fit in perfect with the culture of the university and the men's basketball program. I look forward to representing the University and going to the NCAA Tournament! CHANTS UP!"
"I am so excited to add Chas Brown to our basketball family," Ellis said. "Chas gives us that true post presence we need. He is a very talented big man who can score the ball in the paint, rebound and defend. As a graduate transfer, he gives us the experience and maturity we need to solidify our front line."
