Brown and a few of his teammates arrived early in Atlanta and had a chance to visit with the players and coaches. "It was really a great visit.” Brown talked to Coach Andy McCollum and Coach Bryan Cook.

“Both told me they really want me there and that they like my abilities as a B-Back. The 6'1"-190 Brown continues to grown and would be a good fit for the B Back position. Brittain was also invited to return for one of Tech’s ACC games. Brittain plans to attend the Miami game. “I would really like to see them in action in ACC play."

Before the game started, Brown also talked briefly to Coach Paul Johnson. It was Brown’s first talk with Coach Johnson. “He let me know he wants me there at Tech and would be recruiting me hard."

Brittain has been to Tech five times. “I really like it there.” Brittain was especially impressed with the facilities. “I've noticed that they have made great improvements to the locker room and weight room.”

The academics at Tech and being close to home are two other factors that Brittain likes about Tech. “That and the fact that they have a great football program makes Tech a place that I will be considering hard during my recruitment."

In addition to attending the Miami game, Brown will be visiting Georgia for their game with Troy and Clemson for their game with North Carolina. Georgia Tech offered Brittain in the spring and he also has offers from Clemson, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ole Miss, and UCF.

Aside from Tech, the schools recruiting Brown like him as a safety or an athlete. “I like playing safety. I like to hit but there is great feeling you get, as a running back, when you score or make a big run."

At this point in his recruitment, Brown doesn’t have a leader. "I’m looking at my options and I consider myself wide open."
