With his father hosting a football camp down south last weekend, Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods four-star offensive tackle George Brown used it as a chance to visit two schools that have offered - Auburn and Georgia Tech.
The 6-foot-6, 260-pound Brown started his two-stop trip with a visit to Auburn's campus on Friday.
"I got a chance to talk to some of the players on the offensive line," Brown said. "Chad Slade said that Coach (J.B.) Grimes is really cool and knows what he is doing. He can make a good player into a great player and can get you into the NFL as long as you put in the work."
Friday was the first time Brown had been on Auburn's campus, but he could be making a return visit soon.
"I was talking with my dad because Coach (Gus) Malzahn wants me to get back down for the spring game," Brown said. "I'm not for sure yet, but I am going to try to make that."
Following the Auburn visit, Brown and teammate David Long traveled to Atlanta to see Georgia Tech on Saturday. Both Winton Woods prospects hold offers from the Yellow Jackets.
"Georgia Tech went good," Brown said. "I wasn't sure what to expect from Georgia Tech, but I actually really liked it. They do a lot of things with their academics and getting internships. Their campus is really nice and I liked everything about it."
The visit to Georgia Tech also gave Brown a feel for how he would fit in head coach Paul Johnson's spread option offense.
"I see a good fit for myself in that offense," Brown said. "I didn't get a chance to talk with the offensive line coach because he was at a clinic, so I was with the high school relations coach most of the day."
Always active on the recruiting trail, Brown has his next trip planned to California March 27-31 where he will visit UCLA and USC for the second time in three months.
Now holding more than 40 offers, Brown is considering trimming his list before the summer hits.
"I was thinking of doing a top 15 late April or early May," he said.
