Rivals 250 offensive tackle George Brown is in the midst of his final two college visits before announcing a commitment next Friday.
The Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods four-star just returned from a Friday visit to Kentucky. Brown has made numerous visits to Lexington, and came away with a positive feeling again after this trip.
"I would say it was one of my better visits," Brown said. "I had a lot of one-on-one time with the coaches, just to sit down and find out what they would do with me football-wise. They said my freshman year, instead of redshirting, maybe I could play a little bit of tight end."

Kentucky was hosting a number of recruits for their Friday Night Lights event, which allowed Brown to interact with several of the Wildcat's class of 2015 commits and current players.
"I was talking with a lot of the commits in my class, like Alex Stump and C.J. Conrad," Brown said. "I also talked with Mikel (Horton) and the other players there already and they said they like it a lot. It was a really good visit."
Although the trip to Kentucky comes just a week before his makes his decision, it will not be Brown's last.
"I'll be at Florida on Monday," Brown said. "I just have to get down there, check a few more things out and talk with the coaches. I liked it the last two times I have been down there - I was there for a regular visit and was there for the Tennessee game."
One question Brown does not need to get answered on Monday's visit is his opportunity at Florida.
"Coach (Will) Muschamp said he is going to give everybody an opportunity to play, and that's all I need," Brown said. "I will check out the academics part a little more, but that's probably about it."
Florida has already picked up a commitment from a state of Ohio four-star prospect this month, landing Jerome Baker eight days ago.
"I have been talking to (Baker) a little bit," Brown said. "We are close and there are a lot of good connections (at Florida) as well."
Kentucky and Florida are joined by three more SEC schools - Alabama, Georgia and LSU - in Brown's top five. He made the decision just a few weeks ago to move his decision date up from October to late July, and still feels now is the time to announce.
"I would say it was a good move," Brown said. "I am ready to go ahead and decide."
Brown's announcement will take place at Winton Woods High School at 1:30 pm ET on Friday, July 25.
