  Georgia Tech's offense will have to find a way to get more touches for wide receiver Ahmarean Brown. The leading receiver for the Yellow Jackets in 2019 has seven catches in the team's first five games for 108 yards. "I think he's an elite, athletic, explosive guy that we have to find ways to get the ball in his hands," offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude said Tuesday. Patenaude said that teams have been more attentive to Brown as a deep threat after he caught six passes for 30 yards or more last season as a freshman, tied for 10th in the ACC. For the season, Brown led the Jackets with 21 catches for 396 yards and seven touchdowns, tying Calvin Johnson for most touchdown receptions by a freshman in school history. In the offseason, Brown put on weight and added strength and grew in his understanding of how to play the position.

"A.B. looks phenomenal," wide receivers coach Kerry Dixon said in the preseason. "He's taken his game to another level." Wide receiver Jalen Camp leads the team in catches with 15 (for 201 yards), while fellow wideout Malachi Carter has the most yardage with 213 yards (on 14 catches). Running back Jahmyr Gibbs' playmaking ability has also taken some touches away from Brown. Opposing defenses have had a say, too. Patenaude said that he called a few plays against Clemson that were designed for Brown to get the ball, but the way that the Tigers covered the plays dictated that quarterback Jeff Sims throw the ball elsewhere. Brown said that defenses have been trying to "vise" him, meaning defending him with two players, one to the inside of the field and another to the outside. - Atlanta Journal Constitution
