U of L strong with lineman Aaron Brown

Aaron Brown of Cincinnati Princeton High School has already collected over 40 scholarship offers. The highly sought after offensive lineman visited U of L for the spring game and InsidetheVille.com has the latest on the potential All-American selection.

Aaron Brown can choose to play at just about any major college program in the country. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound offensive lineman has over 40 scholarship offers, which includes schools such as Auburn, Florida State, Louisville, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Purdue and Tennessee.

With interest so high, Aaron and his father George Brown have hit the road this spring, visiting a number of programs and getting an early idea on what different schools have to offer.

The pair have taken trips to Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and a number of others.

"We have made about 20 different trips," George Brown told InsidetheVille.com. "We've tried to stay busy and see as much as we can."

The busy schedule included a visit to U of L in February, when he attended the Cardinals hoops game against Saint Louis, as well as a trip to Louisville this past weekend to attend the annual spring game.

While Aaron is in no rush to make a decision, his father explained that Louisville will be strongly considered when that time does come.

"Louisville is second to none right now," he explained. "Louisville is definately one of the school's that will be there until the end."

Aaron's father also explained that a large part of his son's decision will be based on the relationship with the coaching staff.

"The coaches are the main thing with Aaron," he continued. "He wants to go somewhere that he feels comfortable with the coaches, especially the offensive line coach."

And, according to George, the U of L offensive line coach Mike Summers has already scored high marks with his son.

"The offensive line coach at Louisville is one of the best that we've met and we've met over 20 different coaches," said Aaron's father. "I'm not going to name others, but Coach Summers is one of the best."

With Bobby Petrino's staff seemingly meeting the the coaching criteria, just how does Louisville stack up against the others?

"Louisville has a great chance," said Brown. "Aaron loves the coaches there."

Aaron is currently spending five days a week in the weight room and will be doing speed training in the coming weeks as well.

"This summer we'll take a break and probably won't go anywhere," Brown added. "He want's to narrow down his top school's by the end of the summer."

Brown and his Princeton teammates will open their season as part of the nation's biggest high school football event, the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown. Princeton will host McNicholas on Thursday, August 25th at 8:00 p.m.
