Marlon Brown Talks Gators

The Florida Gators have two of the most exciting wide receivers in the nation on board for the class of 2009. Five-star and the nation's No. 3 ranked wide receiver Andre Debose and four-star and the nation's No. 6 ranked wide receiver Nu'keese Richardson are two of the most dynamic wide receivers you will find for the class of 2009.

If that wasn't enough, the Gators now turn attention to the the nation's No. 2 ranked and also five-star wide receiver Marlon Brown. caught up with the 6-5, 205-pound playmaker with 4.5 speed out of Memphis (TN) Harding High School.

"I made the trip with my grandma and Zack Smith, one of the GA's," Brown said.

Brown talked about his time with head coach Urban Meyer, offensive coordinator Steve Addazio and wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales.

"They are all real laid back dudes and they were all honest with me. They seemed like average people and I liked them."

Brown had a chance to catch up with arguably one of the greatest college football players of all time this morning when he met with quarterback Tim Tebow.

"Tebow is cool. I like him. He told me to go where you feel comfortable. He made me do the Gator Chomp. He is cool. I can see why people like him. He is a real people person."

Brown talked about some of the highlights on his visit to Gainesville.

"The facilities were amazing," he said. "I chilled with Nu'keese, Debose and Gary Brown. I just met Jordan Reed, he is real cool. They all said to go where you feel home is. I spent most of my time with Joe Haden, David Nelson and Riley Cooper and today I got a chance to chill with Percy. He is a real cool dude."

There are a number of factors that go into making these life changing decisions and Brown talked about what will be important for him down the stretch.

"The most important things will be wherever I feel the most comfortable and where I fit in as a person and a player," Brown said. "My grandma also wants me to graduate, so academics of course. Also, it's not about the buildings or facilities it's about the people, so where I think home is four me is where I will attend college. I am also looking at how they can develop me into a great wide receiver and a better man."
