One of the most heavily recruited Midwest prospects early in the 2015 class is Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods lineman George Brown. His momentum continued on Thursday with an offer from Georgia.
"I was talking to the offensive line coach and Coach [Chris] Wilson, the defensive line coach," Brown said. "They said they like me on both sides of the ball, but they offered me at offensive tackle."
Brown plans to reciprocate the interest in Georgia by making a visit to Athens for Dawg Night on July 12. He already has a good grasp on the Bulldog's football tradition.

"They were one play away from winning the SEC Championship and going to the national title game," Brown said. "They are a great school that always competes for the national title."
The offer from Georgia comes on the heels of a southern trip Brown made earlier this month to Florida, Florida State, Miami and Clemson.
"The visits were great," Brown said. "I spent the most time at Florida and liked that a lot. I got to spend a lot of time with the coaches and they will definitely be up there in the tops of my list.
"I really like Clemson a lot. I actually camped there too and got to work out with Coach [Marion] Hobby, the defensive line coach. He is a really good coach and taught me really well."
Brown also recently made a camp appearance at Michigan State, a school that offered him earlier this spring.
"I like Michigan State. There are a lot of people who I know up there," Brown said. "My friend, Shane Jones, just went up there and he works out with me a lot. Coach [Mark] Dantonio recruited my brother when he was in high school."
The 6-foot-6, 253-pound Brown played tight end as a sophomore, but is being recruited primarily on the offensive and defensive lines.
"It really doesn't matter to me what position I play, but right now I am liking defense a lot," Brown said.
With the offer from Georgia, Brown holds around 30 total offers already. While he is enjoying the process, he is also making sure to keep it in proper perspective in relation to his other responsibilities.
"It's very exciting, but right now I'm just focusing on the season and working out with my team," Brown said. "I am very excited to start the season. We have a lot of good players, but we have to keep working hard to get better."
Outside of the trip to Georgia for Dawg Night, Brown does not have any other summer unofficial visits scheduled though he is looking to see more schools and mentioned USC and UCLA as two possible destinations.
