Florida Gators helped their chances with Brown during his visit

The Florida Gators already have one linebacker committed in the 2019 class from the state of Alabama and the coaching staff hosted another one in Gainesville for the Orange and Blue game two weeks ago.

Linebacker Ke’Shun Brown (6-0, 220, Montgomery, AL. Carver) was in town and enjoyed his visit to Gainesville.

“It was good,” Brown said of his visit to Florida for the Orange and Blue game. “I didn’t do to much since it was the spring game, I just went to the game, chilled with the team and talked to the coaches.”

While on campus, Brown got the chance to talk to two of the Gators defensive coaches.

“I talked with Coach [Christian] Robinson and Coach Sal Sunseri,” he said on the coaches he spoke with. “I talked with Coach Sal a lot before and after the game.”

Defensive line coach Sal Sunseri spoke with Brown the most as Sunseri is the main recruiter for the linebacker.

“We talked about a lot on the field before the game, he was getting his guys ready for the spring game,” Brown said of his talks with Sunseri. “He said that they would love to have me down there in Gator Land. He said that I can commit if I’m ready.”

Sunseri also explained to Brown where the Gators see him playing on defense if he chooses the Orange and Blue.

“He wants me at either linebacker spot, outside or inside,” he said on where Florida sees him playing. “I like what Coach Sal is saying, he’s loyal and tells you the truth.”

The spring game was also the first time for Brown and linebackers coach Christian Robinson to meet each other.

“It was my first time seeing Coach Robinson and talking to him,” Brown said on meeting Robinson. “He was telling me that it was nice to meet me and he was talking to me about coming back down again.”

Robinson told Brown what to watch for in the Orange and Blue game and the linebacker came away impressed by the defense.

“I liked the defense, it’s a physical defense,” he said. “I like the coaches and the way they were coaching the team up on defense. I liked the way they had the linebackers playing.”

Heading into the visit Brown was high on Florida but this visit improved the Gators chances with the linebacker he says.

“Yeah it did, it was my first time in Gainesville,” Brown said on if this visit helped Florida with him. “Just to be with the team and watch them play. I liked the atmosphere and it feels like home down there.”
