Greg Brown, Michigan's first commitment in the class of 2011, finally got to experience Ann Arbor. In an official visit form, that is. Brown, who has frequented Ann Arbor throughout the past two seasons, finally took his Wolverine official over the last weekend.
"Things went really good," Brown told GoBlueWolverine. "I got to see the
academic center at Michigan and that was
really cool. They had a nice, broad
campus. I got to meet with the other
players on the team and really get a feel for the academic side of things so

so if I
ever get homesick, I can just shoot back real quick and visit."
If you haven't been under a rock over the past month, you've
noticed an article or two on the future of Rich Rodriguez and the Michigan
program. Brown has noticed too, but it hasn't had any
bit of effect on him.
"I didn't get a chance to sit down with David Brandon, but
he spoke to the recruits and he wasn't talking much about the future, but Coach
