T.J. Brown Checks Out Georgia Tech

Lovejoy High wide receiver T.J. Brown visited Georgia Tech last Saturday. Even though he had already visited the school several times, Brown was able to see a couple of things he hadn't seen before. GAVSV.com spoke with Brown about his trip to see the Jackets.

"It went real well," said T.J. Brown. "I had visited Georgia Tech a few times, so I had seen some of the campus already.  I did see two things that I hadn't seen before. I saw the equipment room and the Business Center.  It was pretty impressive."

"Georgia Tech is one of my top schools.  I talked to Coach Charles Kelley and Coach Buddy Geis, the wide receivers coach.  I like the Georgia Tech coaches a lot."

Brown visited Auburn a couple of weeks ago and he was equally impressed with the Tigers.

"I love Auburn," Brown said. "I liked that they stress academics.  They do everything they can to help you exceed academically.  I like their campus and everything.  I hung out with Mario Fannin while I was there."

"It was their "A" Day and I like the fact that they throw the ball more than they run. It seemed like they ran the ball a lot more last year. I met Coach Greg Knox, the receivers coach. He's real cool. They want me to come to their one day camp and I'm gonna make it down there for that."

Before joining Lovejoy last season, Brown played for St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.  He moved to Hampton, Ga. to live with his grandmother when hurricane Wilma destroyed his home in Southern  Florida.

As a junior, the 6-foot-2, 183-pounder made 18 receptions for 264 yards with three touchdowns while backing up Lovejoy standout Kevin Lewis (Tusculum College).

Brown has not recived any offers yet, but he's getting interest from Auburn, Middle Tennessee, Florida State, Florida, Georgia Tech, and Florida Atlantic.

"Most of the schools that have been recruiting me say they are going to come see our spring practice," he said. "They say their waiting to see how I perform, so I guess that's why they haven't offered yet."

He said it was still too early in his recruiting process to list any favorites.  It's very important to Brown for his family to be content with the school he chooses to attend.

"I don't really have a favorite right now," he said. "I really want my parents and my grandparents to see all the schools interested in me. I want them to see the campus and stuff before I make a decision because I just want them to be comfortable about where I'm at."
