Cinci commit Brown enjoys Big House visit

Linebacker Preston Brown, out of Northwest high in Cincinnati, is a hometown-school commitment, but he made the trek up for the Michigan barbeque. He came away impressed with the whole experience.

Many recruits came to the Michigan barbeque to see what the Wolverines had to offer -- meaning not just the food! For some it was the first time they had been to an Ann Arbor; Preston Brown was one of those recruits.

"I had never been up to Michigan before," he told GoBlueWolverine. "So I wanted to come up just to see how everything was."

Preston had a chance to soak up all Michigan had to offer, and things went very well with the time he had to spend on campus.

"It was a great atmosphere at Michigan. They have a good stadium, a good team and good fan support. It was really nice being up there."

The young man really appreciated how well Michigan put the event together for everyone to enjoy.

"They were really organized and structured ... the food was good ... it went very well. I talked with the coaches Robinson and Hopson; my conversation with Coach Robinson was brief. With Coach Hopson we talked about school and how things were going with my conditioning and lifting weights."

He also enjoyed what the Wolverines had to offer in that regard -- conditioning and becoming a better football player.

"Michigan's facilities are nice, I talked with Mike Barwis, the strength and conditioning coach. He seemed like he really knows what he is talking about with football players. He talked about getting players to play better football with what he does. I liked that."

Brown committed to Cincinnati back in June of 2008 ... but he has decided to look at all of his opportunities just to see what is out there. He has offers from Minnesota, Akron and Kent State Presto,n also has interest coming from West Virginia, Iowa and Duke as well as Michigan.  

"I am committed to Cincinnati right now," he said. "But I am keeping my options open. After I get out from school (June 12) I will consider taking a look at some other schools."
