Everything turned out just how Greg Brown wanted it to on his official visit to the University of Arkansas except for that final score.
Brown (5-11, 175, 4.4), a cornerback from Cedar Hill, Texas, was on hand for Kentucky's 42-29 win over the Razorbacks in a game that Arkansas led 29-21 early in the fourth quarter.
"I liked everything about the visit," Brown said. "I liked the school, the team and the atmosphere. I was real anxious during the game like I was part of the team already. I was disappointed that Arkansas lost, but you have losses sometimes. That's part of football and part of life and you just have to deal with them."
Overall, Brown could certainly see himself in a Razorback uniform.
"It's a great experience," Brown said. "The fans are great. I would love to play here."
But before he commits anywhere, Brown will also be taking visits to Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri and Virginia.
"Arkansas is the number one in my top five right now," Brown said, "but I am going to take all of my visits before I announce."
Earlier this summer, Brown said he was concerned about Arkansas – which has 20 verbal pledges for 2008 prospects - already having two cornerback commits in Texas' Junior Okpara and Alabama's Marcal Robinson.
He had both coaches and fans telling him they need more on his official visit.
"I heard that a lot every where I went," Brown said. "Everyone was saying ‘we need a corner come on and play for us. We need some help in the secondary.'"
Brown was able to take the visit to Arkansas this weekend because Cedar Hill – which is riding a 19-game winning streak - had an off week.
"Our coach always tells us to take it one game at a time," Brown said, "that is what has allowed us to have so many wins in a row."
