Growing up in the Midwest as an Ohio State fan, many in the Alabama communiy have expressed some concern over the Crimson Tide holding onto in-state commitment Deonte Brown since his late April commitment.
But as the seasons have progressed, the top offensive lineman in the Yellowhammer State has become more on board with 'Bama to the point that other programs are now not likely to even host the projected guard.
"I don't think so," Brown said of taking additional visits. "I don't see any other schools that could make me decommit."
The Decatur (Ala.) Austin star has been to Tuscaloosa on multiple ofccasions this fall, however.
"It's exciting and fun," he said. "Being on the field and with the players (and prospects) is the best part. Me and (fellow four-star offensive line commitment) Chris Owens are cool, I haven't really talked to many others. He's a cool and chill person."
Brown,who has yet to schedule his Tuscaloosa official visit, confirmed each four-star is projected to play on the interior once in Tuscaloosa for good. The rapport combined with a steady relationship with UA offensive line coach Mario Cristobal has the program in ideal position to sign one of the best in its backyard.
"I really like their program and how they advance players into the NFL," he said "And I can really see myself making it there if I go to 'Bama."
