With 31 scholarship offers to his credit, Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods offensive tackle George Brown is one of the Midwest's most highly recruited class of 2015 prospects.
The 6-foot-6, 253-pound Brown has been actively traveling to college campuses this off-season, and he plans to keep that going this fall. This past weekend, Brown sat down and scheduled a slew of unofficial, game day visits.
"I was looking at the schedules and picked a few games I wanted to go to," Brown said. "These are the ones I knew for sure."
The schools Brown plans to visit are Georgia on Sept. 9, Kentucky on Sept. 14, Florida on Sept. 21, Clemson on Sept. 28, Auburn on Oct. 5 and Vanderbilt on Oct. 19.
Brown has already visited most of those campuses once before, but looks forward to the unique experience a game visit provides.
"I just want to get a feel for the atmosphere, see how it is during game time," he said. "I want to see how the players do and how the coaches coach during the game."
Georgia lands Brown's first unofficial visits of the fall, and is one of the most recent schools to join his offer list.
"When I got to Georgia, that is going to be my first visit to Georgia," he said. "I had actually set up a visit, but had some things come up and didn't get a chance to visit."
When he was not visiting college campuses, Brown made sure to maintain communication with as many college coaches as possible. He placed his most recent call Saturday night down to Vanderbilt.
"I talked with Coach [James] Franklin just to see how things were going," Brown said. "They were actually scrimmaging that night, so I got to talk to most of the coaches on the staff. I like that staff a lot - they are pretty down-to-earth coaches."
Which schools Brown likes best will not be revealed for several more months, and his final decision is still over a year away.
"I think I am probably going to announce a top 12-13 after my season," he said. "I will most likely take my official visits. I'm not sure if I am going to take all of them, but I know I will probably at least take a few of them."
Brown transferred to Winton Woods from Colerain High this off-season. He expects to line up at offensive tackle and defensive end, but could also see some time at tight end and offensive guard this fall.
