Sophomore Talks Buckeye Trip

Ohio State was the latest unofficial visit for Cincinnati Colerain sophomore tight end George Brown, as he was in Columbus last weekend for the game against UAB. Brown discussed his trip to see the Buckeyes.

Cincinnati Colerain sophomore tight end George Brown has been drawing a lot of recruiting attention this season, as college programs have noticed his size and athleticism.

Brown, 6-foot-6, 240-pounds, has been playing quality minutes for one of Ohio's top high school teams. He is on the radar at several top programs, and has visited Michigan State and Ohio State on successive weekends. He was in Columbus last weekend for the game against UAB.

"I had a great time at Ohio State, and it was the first time seeing a game there," Brown stated. "I got the chance to speak to (assistant coach) Kerry Coombs, and he used to coach at my high school, so that was great. He said they know all about me, and they will be checking out my film this year."

"The atmosphere was great and I enjoyed being at Ohio State," he added. "It was very similar to being at Michigan State, and I can definitely see myself playing in this type of program some day. Going to these games motivates me to work even harder, so I can be at this level some day. Ohio State is definitely a school I'm interested in, and they said they want to see me in camp next summer."

Sophomores don't typically earn significant playing time at Colerain, so Brown is certainly a player to watch for the 2015 class in Ohio. Although playing tight end, he could grow into an offensive tackle at the next level.

"I'm playing better every week," he explained. "We beat Sycamore last week, and I think that was my best game so far. My blocking is very improved and the coaches are happy with my play. I'm finishing blocks better, and I can feel myself getting better in every part of my game. I'm not sure about taking any more visits, because I need to lift on Saturday mornings."

Brown also has interest from schools such as LSU, Auburn and Virginia Tech. His older brother, Aaron, played for Virginia Tech.
