WATE and WBIR are spreading the story of UT freshman Randall “Jordan” Brown through the Knoxville-area community.

Brown, a freshman from Maryville, was homeless off and on throughout high school. Since January, he’s bounced from friend’s home to friend’s home. The summer found him sleeping in a city park for several nights.

Through it all, Brown managed to excel at Maryville High School. He entered UT with a 33 ACT score and racked up more than 30 AP credits, enough to be classified as a sophomore from the onset.
