One of Ohio's top 2015 prospects is offensive tackle/defensive end George Brown, and the Cincinnati Colerain lineman is off to an impressive start to his recruitment.

Although only a sophomore, Brown (6-foot-6, 255-pounds) currently holds 25 offers, with more possibly headed his way. He is soon to embark on a southern camp swing through the state of Florida.

"I'm taking my first camp visits the end of May," Brown stated. "I'm going to camp at Florida, Florida State and Miami. Florida has offered, and I'm hoping to earn the other two offers. Distance from home will not be a problem for me in choosing a school, and I'm just looking for the right fit."

"Florida's Coach (Tim) Davis came to watch me work out at my school, and I like them a lot," he added. "I'm working out as a defensive end and offensive tackle for them, and they like big defensive ends. I talk to Tank (Cornelius Carradine) a lot about Florida State, and we've worked out together before. Miami has been to my school a lot, and I'm excited to get down there and see Coach (Art) Kehoe again."

Brown also has plans to head west later in the summer to check out some of the top programs. Other camp visits are in the works as well.

"I know we are going to visit UCLA and USC," he explained. "I've been talking to UCLA and I'm very interested. I speak to Coach (Tee) Martin at USC, and he said the staff loves me and wants to see me in person before offering."

"I also talk to Coach (Mike) Elder a lot, and I'm going to visit Tennessee this summer for sure," he continued. "I'd also like to see schools like Baylor and Syracuse, but I'm not sure. Ohio State is also a place I want to camp, and I think it will be at their Friday Night Lights camp."

With an impressive combination of size, speed and athleticism, Brown could project to either side of the football.

"Florida is recruiting me as an offensive tackle, while Miami and Florida State think I could play defensive end," Brown stated. "Kansas State thinks I could play tight end for them. Most of the schools have not specified a position, and want to see where I fit in best."

"I like defensive end a lot, because it just feels more natural to me and I seem to have a lot more energy on defense," he added. "It really doesn't matter to me, and I just love to play football."
