Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods four-star class of 2015 offensive tackle George Brown has made several trips and has strong connections to Kentucky. On Saturday he saw them take on in-state rival Louisville.
"The fans are always crazy, so it was a good game," Brown said. "I really liked that I got to talk with the coaches a little while before the game. My cousin is going there and there were a lot of other commits at the game that I know. I have a good relationship with the commits."

Brown made the trip to Lexington with his father. His cousin is class of 2014 Winton Woods safety Mike Edwards, who was also at the game.
Although Kentucky dropped the game against Louisville by a final of 27-13, Brown liked the way they competed.
"I think in the beginning of the game they were playing really well, they just had a lot of mistakes," Brown said. "I think if they would have caught some passes and made some stops on defense, they would have been in it at the end."
Kentucky is competing with more than 30 other schools that have also offered Brown, but the Wildcats remain in a strong position in his recruitment.
"I definitely like Kentucky a lot," he said. "I think I am going to release my top ten after the season, and I think Kentucky should be in that."
Another school that will get their chance to make another impression on Brown before he trims his list to a top ten is Florida.
"I'm going to the Florida-Tennessee game next weekend," Brown said. "I'm excited to get down there and see The Swamp. They say The Swamp is the loudest stadium. I also want to talk with the coaches and also a lot of the commits that are going to that game."
Brown made an unofficial visit to Florida back in May. This will be his second trip to Gainesville.
"The first time I liked the coaching staff and the campus," Brown said. "This time I want to check out the game and see how the crowd is."
For the 6-foot-6, 255-pound Brown, next weekend will be his third SEC game visit of the season. He attended a game at Georgia earlier this month.
