Greg Brown Recaps Michigan Official

The Wolverine's first commitment for the class of 2011 has been no stranger to Ann Arbor, but he finally took his official visit. GBW caught up with him to hear his feelings on his visit, amongst other things.

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 that was cool."

On his visit, he was hosted by another defensive back that the Wolverine's plucked out of the Buckeye State.

"Courtney Avery (was his host). He just really said that they have a young secondary and they need help in it and I just really want to help in it as much as possible."

Brown, who could play both positions in the defensive backfield, hasn't had the coaches cement anything for him.

"They haven't really hammered anything down, but it's either going to be corner or safety. Whatever we need."

Brown will also be one of the Wolverine's early enrollee's this coming January as he prepares to graduate from his Fremont-Ross high school in mere weeks.

"I'm just really excited. I graduate in a few weeks from here and I just can't wait to get up there. I think there is some nerves going on, but eventually I'll have to overcome that."

Leaving behind your final high school semester and entering college early can be a difficult thing to overcome, but Brown isn't nearly as worried as some might be.

"Yeah, that's such a cool thing about it. We're only an hour and a half away, 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 Rodriguez was telling us he was planning on staying there for at least ten more years."

Either way it shakes out, it won't have an impact on Brown, as he is a Wolverine, regardless of any outcome.

"I'm Maize and Blue all the way through. I just got a sneak peek for what's going to happen with me for my next four years and it was just a really great experience."
