Thomas Brown visits Georgia

Tucker running back / defensive back Thomas Brown is visiting Athens today. Brown has been offered from several schools around the nation.

Tucker High running back Thomas brown has gone from two early offers to several offers from big name schools. Since Georgia offered him in early spring 2003, Brown has received offers from a who's who of football schools around the south and the nation.

"Michigan State, Maryland, Ohio State, Tennessee, Auburn, Florida State, and Virginia have all offered me," said Brown.

But why has the latest product from Tucker suddenly gotten so much attention. "I don't know," Brown replied.

I asked him to describe his running style and he responded: "Its sort of like a speed type running back; like Warrick Dunn. I can get out of the backfield and catch the ball and I also have some power to my game."

Brown did not grow up in Tucker. He said that when he was in 4th grade he moved from the City of Atlanta out to the suburbs. Brown was on track to attend Atlanta's Mays High School before leaving the city.

"There are lots of athletes that have come thought Tucker," he said. Patrick Pass, Corey Robinson, Jabari Davis, and Darrius Swain all attended Tucker and all went on to play in the SEC. "Tucker has always had a pretty good coaching staff," Brown added.

Defensive line coach Rodney Garner is recruiting Brown for the Dawgs. But Brown admitted that as of right now nothing has set Garner and Georgia apart from the rest of the pack. But that could change this week.

"I am going to Georgia on Tuesday for an unofficial visit," Brown said. "I went to Athens a lot when I was young to see Pat and Corey play."

Brown said that his final decision will come down to which ever school puts him most at ease. "It is going to come down to wherever I feel most comfortable at. I want to play early I don't want to regret the decision that I made in picking the school," he said.

Brown, being recruited as a running back and perhaps also as a defensive back, said that he would rather play running back if given the choice.

"I would prefer playing running back, but I can play Defensive back as well. I'll play whatever is best for the team," he said.
