Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. linebacker Mike Brown took a trip to Big Ten country this past weekend. How did the Florida native like the cold?
"It's funny because it was in the high 30s and wasn't that bad at Michigan at all," he laughed. "My official visit to Virginia Tech was colder. It snowed while I was in Virginia and it was just windy in Michigan."
The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder took his second official visit this past weekend to Ann Arbor to check out the Wolverines. He was hosted by fellow linebacker Obi Oluigbo.
"He was cool and the players were all tight," he said. "The only problem was that it was just too far away from home. It wasn't a bad plane ride, but obviously you don't want to drive from Florida to Michigan. I wanted to check it out though."
Brown said that his leader remains the same.
"The Hokies are my top choice," he said. "I thought about committing a couple of times and I'm sure I'll think about it again. I have a visit with Central Florida set for Jan. 17 and I have Boston College on Jan. 24. BC is the only team that could change my mind off of Tech I think and I'd like to take the trip."
