Brown Excited About Return Trip To Auburn

Big George Brown Jr. discusses his upcoming visit to check out the Auburn Tigers.

Cincinnati, OH--A talented big man that has already made one trip to see the Auburn Tigers, Winton Woods High standout George Brown will make a return visit to the Plains this weekend to check out Gus Malzahn's program. Being recruited as an offensive lineman capable of playing tackle or guard, Brown said he's excited about the chance to get another look at Auburn.

"I'm looking forward to it a lot," the 6-7, 260 Brown tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I'm ready to get down there and build a better relationship with the coaches and see the academic center as well because I didn't get a chance to see it last time.

"I really like the coaches there," he added. "I have also talked to some of the players like C.J. Uzomah and Chad Slade. Chad said that Coach (J.B.) Grimes is a great coach and teaches them really well. That's why I want to get down there and hang out with Coach Grimes a little more. I know he's a great coach and it would be great to learn from him."

Something that could help Auburn's chances with Brown is his relationship with a student-athlete already very familiar with the Tigers. A four-year contributor for the Tigers on the basketball court, Allen Payne is a graduate of Winton Woods and someone that Brown has sought out to learn more about life in Auburn.

"I think Auburn has a chance," Brown said. "I really like the place. A guy that went to my school, Allen Payne, plays on the basketball team and he really likes it down there. That's another plus that he likes it and he's from Ohio."

Already a visitor to hometown Cincinnati and nearby Kentucky as well as taking a trip to the West Coast to see both USC and UCLA, Brown is taking trips to many of his schools of interest early on to help him get as much information as possible. He said that's important to him because this will be a tough choice when the time comes and he wants to make the right call.

"It is helping me out a lot getting a chance to go see some schools," Brown said. "I can see if I like them or if I don't like them. It's really helping me out a lot."

Brown will be joined on his visit by high school teammate David Long and longtime friend Danny Thomas from Cypress Bay. He averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds a game this season as he helped Winton Woods to a playoff berth.
