Three-star defensive tackle Christian Brown out of Bridgeton, N.J. took his first official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder made his way for his first ever trip to West Virginia.
"I took an official to West Virginia and it turned out to be pretty good," he said. "I got there about six on Friday and met will all the coaches and ate out.
"On Saturday they took us around the school, I saw the campus a bit, the dorms they have for the football players, the rec center and a couple other hangout spots along with classes, buildings and the library.
"I also went to practice. It was cold, but they were hitting full pads. I got the feeling of it. They came in and got the job done. Of course, you're going to hear some yelling and that's football, it went good."
Brown got time with the coaching staff too.
"I talked to Coach Holgorsen and Coach Kirelawich," he said. "They talked to me about playing time and seeing the field early. That was good hearing that.
"Basically, they said cause they need players that if I come in and do my job right, I'll be seeing the field early. Coach Holgorsen also asked how I liked it and pretty much I told him I liked it and I could see myself playing here, I told him he'll hear from me in a week or two."
The visit certainly has helped the Mountaineers.
"The visit really bumped them up, they are leading it so far, but they are the only school I've gone to and visited."
From here, Brown plans to visit more.
"I'm going to try to see if I can get a couple more visits in, obviously I'm not going to wait too long about where I want to go," he said. "I'll probably decide this month or mid-next month.
"I don't know where else I'm going. If I can go on a visit this weekend, I'm going to try to do that. I'm trying to see who I'm going to visit next though, I have no idea."
Proded about who else is in the mix, Brown was unsure at this time.
"I wouldn't say I have narrowed my list, but so far West Virginia is leading."
