Rivals100 running back Carlos Brown out of Franklin (Ga.) Heard County took his second official visit of the season to Ann Arbor. The 6-foot-0, 205-pounder was very impressed by his visit and Michigan pulled out all the stops.
"It was a great place," he said. "My host was Mike Hart and I liked that he's honest and a lot of fun to be around. We hung out with a lot of the players, went to the mall, traveled around campus and he just told me about Michigan.
"I got up there on Friday and met with the coaches and players. On Saturday, I went to the game and later that night hung out with Mike and others. Then on Sunday I met with the academic people and just saw what Ann Arbor had to offer. I got to meet the coaches and I really liked coach Fred Jackson. He's a really funny guy and a great coach. I also met coach Carr who is also funny. We talked a lot about his past coaching experiences and some of the other players."

The four-star prospect particularly enjoyed taking in the Wolverines tough 25-21 loss to Ohio State.
"It was a good game, but it went by really quick," he said. "It was so loud and the atmosphere was great. It's cold outside, but it gives you chills not from the weather but to see the tradition and fans. I particularly liked what they did with the running backs. They split them out wide, put them in the slot and they throw and run to them. I was also really impressed with the team chemistry. I saw that all the players bonded together really well."
Brown rated his trip to Ann Arbor a nine.
"I just had a good feeling and it was a good place," he said. "I really don't rate the trips, but I can say I like them. The visit was very comparable to my Florida State trip a couple weeks ago."
One new team has jumped into the mix and landed the fourth official visit from the No. 5 running back in the country.
"I've set up a visit to South Carolina on December 2nd," he said. "I've been looking at their running back position and I think I might fit in up there. They're also doing a lot of big things and all the coaches are really good."
Brown still has his fourth official set for Georgia on December 9th.
