George Brown Pledges To Florida

For the second time this month, Florida has landed a commitment from the state of Ohio. Cincinnati Winton Woods offensive lineman George Brown has committed to the Gators, where he will join Cleveland Benedictine's Jerome Baker in the 2015 Florida recruiting class.

Florida is hoping to have a big recruiting day this Friday and Cincinnati Winton Woods offensive lineman George Brown got things off to a good start for the Gators by committing in the afternoon.

Brown, 6-foot-6, 260-pounds, selected the Gators over Kentucky and Alabama. He discussed what put Florida over the top.

"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."

"I also have great relationships with players like Duke Dawson, Quincy Wilson and David Sharpe," he added. "Watching them work out, I think they're definitely ready to get things going this season."

"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.
