Big bad Brown talks Dawgs

Georgia is in the mix, but it appears that the Dawgs will have to fight off regional and national powers to get Brown to come to Athens.

Big and bad, Michael Brown is starting to rack up the offers from all over the country. Georgia is in the mix, but it appears that the Dawgs will have to fight off regional and national powers to get Brown to come to Athens.

Brown has been to the Classic City several times and says that it is different than his Atlanta home.

"I have been up there three times," he said. "I met with Coach Garner up there and Coach Callaway. I met Coach Richt too. It's quiet up there. When I went to Athens there were not that many people around campus."

Brown said, however, that the trips that he had to Georgia were great. He said that he felt like he was already between the hedges. "It was like I was on the team," he described.

Brown said that he has heard little from the Georgia coaching staff lately. "It's been about a month or two," he said. But NCAA regulations limit calls this time of year.

Brown will be in Athens one more time this year as he is planning on visiting during the July camp in Athens. "I am going to come up to the camp," he said. But with scholarship offer in hand Brown might not workout at the camp. Instead, he said, he might just show up to the camp. "They said that they already know what I can do," he explained.

Virginia, Florida State, Auburn, Alabama and Louisville have all offered Brown but Michigan, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and LSU are his top five. All of his top five have offered as well.

He said of his top five: "I like the way that their defenses are great. I like their defensive style.

He said that he is staying busy this summer. "I am working out every day and run a lot," Brown said.

He also thinks that this season could be a good one for his high school, Westlake. "I think that we could take it all of the way. We have the kind of team that can win. Our defense is all seniors," he said.

Brown said that his relationship with Georgia's Coach Garner is going well.

"We just talk about Georgia and how it would be a good school for me. He talked with my mother about academics at Georgia and some of the players that have gone on to the NFL from Georgia," he said.
