Brown enjoys visit to Athens

For Thomas Brown, it moved Georgia into his top five schools. But why? See more inside.

One trip to Athens can change lots of things. For Thomas Brown, it moved Georgia into his top five schools.

Brown said that Georgia had not previously been in his top 5 because he was worried that the Dawgs would move him to cornerback, instead of playing him at running back after he signed.

"I thought that the trip went real well," Brown said. "They took us on a tour and we talked to the academic coordinator," he said.

"I talked Coach Rucker and he said that he was very interested in me playing running back at Georgia," he added. That was what Brown was looking for from the Dawgs.

Brown's Tucker teammate Brandon Lang also attended on the trip to Athens.

"The trip put Georgia in the top five for sure," he said.

Maryland, FSU, Virginia, and Notre Dame close out Brown's top five schools right now. All of his favorites have offered him. I asked specifically about why he liked Virginia and he replied: "I like Virginia. I think that I could play early there."

He added about Coach Rucker: "He seemed really cool. He talked to me about how many running plays that they run and things about the program."

Addressing the cornerback issue further, Brown felt more at ease saying that he is convinced that he will play running back if he were to choose Georgia. "I did worry about them moving me to CB," he said. "But Coach Rucker said that I would be at running back"

Brown said that he will be in Athens for Georgia's July 11th and July 12th camp.
