Grammy winning artist John Legend is the uncle of Minnesota recruit Michael Brown-Stephens, who signed his national letter of intent on the first day of the early signing period.

His Uncle sent out a congratulations: 

The three-star wide receiver out of Akron, Ohio, attended Springfield High School and is one of Minnesota’s 24 commitments in the 2019 recruiting class.

His uncle noted in his tweet recognizing Brown-Stephens’ accomplishment that he might pose a problem if the Gophers play Ohio State in the future, as Legend is a Buckeyes fan. Legend also tweeted that Brown-Stephens was the same nephew who broke his Grammy award in 2010.

Not a bad signing. 

Good player, very famous fan.
