OT Orlando Brown Profile
His son, Orlando Brown, recently moved from Maryland to the
Atlanta-area. On Monday, the Brown picked up an offer from Clemson when
running backs coach Tony Elliott stopped by Peachtree Ridge High
School in Suwanee, Ga.
"Clemson has been recruiting me since freshman year when I was at DeMatha,
back in Maryland. It's not a big shock, but I'm pretty surprised [by the
offer]," Brown said in an interview with CUTigers on Monday
Several programs have already offered Brown, including Alabama, Auburn,
Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Notre Dame, South Carolina, USC and West
Brown has yet to visit Clemson, but he is familiar with the Palmetto
"My dad went to South Carolina State so I like Clemson a lot," he said.
The 6-foot-7, 340-pound rising junior has a pretty solid understanding of
what the state of the Clemson program is.
"They've got a pretty good offense, pretty good offensive system," Brown
said. "They kind of run the same thing we do here at Peachtree Ridge.
They've got a lot of up and coming players and a lot of good players in
the NFL. It's a really good program."
There is no list of favorites.
"Nobody is leading, but of course Auburn and Alabama have been recruiting
me a lot, and South Carolina," he said.
A decision isn't expected to be made anytime soon.
"Probably going into senior year or after senior year, about that time,"
