Florida on top for Brown

With prospects now out for the summer you will start to see more and more out of state prospects making trips to Gainesville.

On Thursday the Gators hosted 2015 Cincinnati (Oh.) Winton Woods offensive lineman George Brown.

“It was a pretty good visit,” Brown said. “I had a great time. I got to see some live alligators in the pond they weren’t very big but still alive. I got to go see the academic side of things and see that Florida was a great school and I got to eat some gator tail.”

While the 6-foot-6, 253-pound Brown is listed as an offensive lineman, he is being recruited to Florida as an athlete.

“I got to sit down with coach (Tim) Davis, coach (Will) Muschamp, coach (DJ) Durkin and coach (Brad) Lawing,” Brown said. “They all met with me one on one and were telling me that right now they have me as an athlete because they don’t know where I’ll end up at. They said I could play tight end, offensive line or even defensive end at Florida.”

When the 2015 prospect was talking with head coach Will Muschamp the message was pretty clear.

“Coach Muschamp told me he wants me,” Brown said. “He was talking to me about the school and how Florida is number 2 in the SEC in graduation rate behind Vanderbilt. He was also telling me that he wasn’t going to pressure me into committing or anything that he wanted me to take my time and think about the visit and he wanted me to call him in a couple of days to talk to him about the visit and what I liked about it.”

Following the visit Brown says that Florida is at the top of his list and he plans to visit both Florida State and Miami this summer.
