Friday is starting off to be a good day for Florida as the Gators landed commitment number 9 when offensive tackle George Brown (6-6, 264, Cincinnati, OH Winton Woods) announced for Florida.
“I committed because I loved the coaches and the atmosphere there,” Brown said. “I went to the workout there and I was watching the players workout and you can tell last year was a fluke. Coach Dillman, the strength coach, is one of the best strength coaches around and you can tell he gets the players ready to play.”
Brown doesn’t plan on losing many games in college and he believes Florida is going to turn things around this year.
“Just the way the team is working out and going about theirselves I think they will,” Brown said. “They are working really hard and they have the mindset that they are going to go out there and do good this year.”
One of the main reasons Brown committed to Florida was because of his relationship with offensive line coach Mike Summers and his past history with him.
“I like Coach Summers a lot, I got to sit down and talk football with him,” Brown said. “My dad and him have a good really good relationship because Coach Summers recruited my older brother to Louisville. Coach Summers, you can tell knows a lot and he can teach you the things you need to know.”
The offensive lineman admits that he has the best relationship with Summers but he also talks to another coach daily.
“Coach [Will] Muschamp is down to earth,” Brown said. “I talk to him almost every day either by phone or Twitter or by Facebook. You can just tell that Coach Muschamp is a good coach and that he’s ready to get the season started and get the program back on track like it should be.”
Now that Brown has committed to Florida he plans to go from being recruited to recruiting others to join him in Gainesville.
“I’ve been recruiting a lot of people so far already,” Brown said. “I’ve been recruiting my good friend CeCe Jefferson, Byron Cowart. I’ve also been talking to Adonis Thomas, Tevon Coney, Auden Tate, Jalen Merrick and a few other people”
Before Brown got off the phone with Gator Country he had a message for Florida fans.
“I’m ready to get down there and compete,” Brown said. “ Go Gators.
