Brown Has "Great Time" At Auburn

Offensive tackle George Brown Jr. talks about his trip to see the Auburn Tigers.

Cincinnati, OH.--A physically impressive athlete at offensive tackle that already has offers from schools from across the country, big George Brown Jr. was back on the Auburn campus Friday to check out the Tigers and talk with Coaches Gus Malzahn and J.B. Grimes. Also spending time with several players, Brown said overall it was another good experience on the Plains.

"I had a great time," Brown said. "I got to talk with Coach Grimes and Coach Malzahn and Coach (Rhett) Lashlee. It was a really nice environment. I like the new dorm rooms they have built. It's just a really great atmosphere. I got to talk to some of the offensive linemen like Chad Slade. They said it's a great program. Obviously they are building up great things after going to the national championship this year."

Being recruited by Grimes, Brown said he really likes the veteran coach and especially what he's been able to do on the Plains since he arrived.

"I like Coach Grimes a lot," Brown said. "He's a real cool guy. He's a nice person to talk to. You can just sit down and talk to him about life, about anything. He's a good coach, obviously he coached Greg Robinson and he's going to be a number one offensive tackle. He might be the number one pick. He can obviously coach and make them great players."

Looking for something to distinguish schools while on his visits and having already been to Cincinnati, Kentucky, USC and UCLA, Brown said seeing the new South Donahue Residence Hall shows him how committed Auburn is to being successful on and off the field.

"It means a lot," Brown said. "They are building a lot of new things around the campus and also the players are doing a lot of hard work in the weight room and in the classroom to be successful."

Not planning to make an early decision, Brown said he hopes to begin to narrow things down soon and is confident the Tigers will be in the running.

"I like it a lot," Brown said of Auburn. "I would say that they are pretty high on my list. I'm not sure on a commitment yet to any school. I'm probably going to do a Top 15 at the beginning of next month. It's going to be pretty tough. There are a lot of good schools that have been recruiting me. I just have to narrow it down to the schools that are really interested in me and I am really interested in."
