GA OL turning heads at new position

<b>Philip Browning Jr.</b> is proving his versatility on the football field.

One player in the state of Georgia that high school fans and recruitniks are not quite as familiar with is Philip Browning Jr. of Westminster in Atlanta. One of the reasons why he is coming in off the radar is because he spent his junior campaign at Hargrave Military Academy.

Having helped lead his team to a 2-1 record, including a big 20-3 upset of a loaded Grayson team, recruiters and recruitniks alike are beginning to take notice. Browning started the season at offensive tackle, but to help solidify the line, he has been moved inside to play center.

"I've really liked the move," said Browning. "I played center when I was younger, and I'm enjoying playing there now."

Browning pulls double duty and is a standout at defensive tackle as well, but it's his versatility on the offensive line that will be his meal ticket to the next level.

Speaking of meal ticket, Browning has gotten considerably bigger in the short time that he has been back from Hargrave. He weighed in at just under 250 pounds at the Nike Camp last spring, but he's pushing 270 pounds right now.

"I've spent a lot of time in the weight room, and Mom's cooking sure didn't hurt anything," added Browning with a laugh.

Who are some of the teams that are looking at Browning, and who is he looking at in return?

"The teams I've been hearing the most from are Georgia, Florida State, Duke, Vanderbilt, Harvard, and Virginia. I don't really have a favorite out of those teams."

Westminster has a big showdown with Banneker tonight. Browning is not planning on taking in any games this weekend, but he is scheduled to be in attendance for the Georgia/Alabama game.
