The three-star offensive tackle flipped his pledge from Florida to the Tigers on Saturday during his official visit. The Ohio native had been committed to Florida since July but started to reopen his recruitment with the coaching change in Gainesville.
That left an opening for the Tigers on which they capitalized.
Brown made his flip official Saturday on the second night of his official visit. He met with Les Miles around 9:30 p.m. and took to Twitter to notify the public.
Brown becomes LSU's fourth offensive linemen committed for the 2015 class and the second tackle. He was one of the first prospects Jeff Grimes offered upon taking the OL job at LSU, and he serves as another major get for Grimes.
According to Brown's father, his son's decision is final.
"George will not be taking any visits," George Brown Sr. said to Scout's Bill Greene. "Recruiting is over. Coach Miles told him he can play next year, not redshirt."
Brown ranks as a three-star prospect, the No. 38 offensive tackle in the country. The Tigers feel he's underrated though and will have a very high ceiling on the next level.
Brown also has some familial ties to LSU. He's cousins with former Tiger running back Spencer Ware, and he also has a relationship with Sam Montgomery. Those connections helped build Brown's interest in LSU, and that ultimately boiled into a commitment this weekend.
