Three-star defensive tackle Garrett Brown out of Fairfield (Conn.) Fairfield Prep still has four schools in position to get official visits from him. The 6-foot-2, 286-pounder talked with Rivals.com about the schools he's considering and even took an unofficial to one of their games in recent weeks.
"I'm going to schedule visits soon with Maryland, Ole Miss, Michigan State and Minnesota," he said. "Those are the schools I'm interested in because the coaching staffs from all of them are great especially from Maryland."
Brown took in the West Virginia-Maryland game a couple weeks back.
"My unofficial visit there made me decide to take an official in the future as they are still my leaders," he said. "I went and saw the campus and the game was really good. I thought Maryland would be able to pull out the win, but they were overcome by West Virginia. I liked their intensity and fans as they are all really into it. I talked to coach Sollazzo and Friedgen when I was there and they were glad I was able to make it and hoped to see me back in a few weeks when they play Boston College."
Currently, the No. 58 defensive tackle in the country plans to attend the Boston College game.
As for his officials, Brown doesn't think he'll be taking any until after the season.
"I'm looking at taking them in early December," he said. "I might go on some unofficial visits to games, but I've got to see what I'll be able to do with our schedule."
The No. 12 player in New England played a tough game against Tolland last week which ended in a 20-20 tie.
"We don't have overtime in Connecticut and we're going to have to bounce back from that and win Friday," he said. "This season I have three sacks and at least 13 tackles so far. I think I've done ok, but I know I could do a lot better in my overall game. There is definitely room for improvement."
This week Brown received a U.S. Army All-American game nomination.
