"I chose Florida because every time I'm there it feels like my family," Brown stated. "I also like the coaches a lot, especially Coach (Will) Muschamp and Coach (Mike) Summers. My dad also has a good relationship with Coach Summers, because he recruited my older brother when he was coaching at Louisville."
"They are recruiting me as an offensive lineman, as a tackle," he continued. "They are taking five linemen, and I'm thrilled to be a part of Gator Nation. I want to help recruit other players into this class, and I'm talking to players like Byron Cowart, Tevon Coney, C.C. Jefferson and George Campbell. People are going to love this recruiting class."
Brown also has formed a friendship with fellow Ohioan Jerome Baker, an earlier Gator commit from Cleveland Benedictine.
"Jerome and I are talking a lot, especially recently," he explained. "We actually started talking before he committed, and we are both looking forward to hanging out together in Gainesville."
Scout.com will have more on Brown's announcement throughout the weekend.
