Orlando Brown talks Alabama camp

Orlando Brown, offensive tackle from Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Ga., was the biggest prospect at the University of Alabama's camp this week. The monster 2014 recruit camped in Tuscaloosa Monday morning. Brown talked about his first-ever visit to the Capstone.


"The camp went pretty well," said Orlando Brown. "I feel like I did well in the one-on-ones. I did well in the agility work. I did a good job and impressed the coaches.

"Coach Stoutland is a great coach. He is going to stay on your until you get it right. Their staff is great. You can tell they are going to win a lot of championships in the future."

Brown arrived in Tuscaloosa Sunday evening before camping Monday morning.

""I came up there yesterday," he said. "I visited the school, mainly the athletic center. I camped this morning. I had never visited Alabama before. The campus is great. There is a lot of history behind the school. I know Tuscaloosa is strictly football. Most of the fans, college students are all about football."

The 6-foot-9, 360-pound prospect has 27 scholarship offers including one from the Tide.

"I like their coaching staff," Brown said of Alabama. "I like the academics. I have some friends who go there now. I know some people who went there in the past. I like academics, players and staff. I know they are going to get you to the next level.

"I can't say I have any favorites right now. Alabama is a really good school. I know they have a lot to offer."

Brown travels to Florida this Saturday for an unofficial visit. He also plans to visit Florida State, Oregon, USC, Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio State and Michigan this summer.

Brown hopes to make a decision before his senior season with several trips in the next year.

"The earliest I could make a decision is next summer," he said. "I want to visit as many colleges as I can before I make my decision. I am looking for good academics, good coaching staff and chance to play my freshman year."
