It was a whose who of prospects in the South Endzone of Ben Griffin Stadium on Saturday afternoon when the Florida Gators defeated the Tennessee Volunteers.
One of those prospects was 2015 Cincinnati (OH.) Winton Woods offensive lineman/defensive lineman George Brown.
“The visit was real good,” Brown said. “It was the loudest game I’ve been too. The loudest stadium too. I got to talk to Coach (Will) Muschamp, Coach (Brad) Lawing, Coach (Tim) Davis before the game. It went well.”
When the 6’6″, 253-pound Brown talked to the Florida coaches he received good feedback on his junior season so far.
“The like my film from this year but they still don’t know what position they want me at,” Brown said. “Because Coach Lawing wants me on the defense side and Coach Davis wants me on the offensive side of the ball. It really doesn’t matter to me but right now I’m liking defense more but it really doesn’t matter.”
During the game the 2015 prospect spent his time watching both the defensive line and offensive line, Brown came away impressed by one of them.
“The defense was real good and Coach Lawing knows how to coach those defenses lineman,” Brown said. “The defensive line was swarming the ball and getting off of the line quick during the game.”
While Brown called The Swamp the loudest stadium he’s ever been to, he was also a celebrity in Gainesville this weekend.
“One of the best atmospheres I’ve seen so far,” Brown said. “The fans were really nice and some of the fans said they knew me and said hello to me.”
Brown said while watching the game he talked to 2015 prospects CeCe Jefferson and Jeffrey Holland who both became good friends of his.
Brown, a 2015 prospect, still has close to 18 months before he has to decide but he says this game helped Florida out.
“This helps Florida out for me because it was a great experience to check out the game,” Brown said. “I think the backup quarterback did pretty good too. When he came into the game he brought some life to the offense, so I liked that as well.”
Brown plans to be back in Gainesville this summer for a visit and he will also be in Clemson on Saturday when the Tigers take on Wake Forest.
