Marlon Brown, 6-5, 205 pound wide receiver from Memphis-Harding Academy had a good visit to Tennessee despite the Volunteers loss. He reported of his visit to Tennessee, "I went in really open minded and I thought the same thing when I left. They are an amazing school and they have an amazing coach."
Even though Tennessee did not perform well against Florida Brown was not phased by the performance. He explained, "I know it is the SEC and teams will win some games in the SEC and lose some games in the SEC." Brown went on to say of his experience at Neyland Stadium, "It was real live on game day. There were people at 7:30 in the morning tailgating, they all wear orange and they are all loud."
Brown, a 6-5, 205 pound playmaker from Tennessee likes what the Tennessee coaches had to say about his role in their offense. He commented, "He told me that they have some good receivers, but they are trying to find a receiver who can be a playmaker in the offense." Brown was able to meet one of those playmakers on his visit. He explained, "I talked to Zach Rogers. I like him because he is real cool and laid back."
The tour of the SEC continues this weekend for Brown as he will take a trip to Athens to watch the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Alabama Crimson Tide. He reported, "I'm heading to Georgia on Friday. Then I am going to visit Ohio State, Florida, and then LSU." The Bulldogs have paid a lot of attention to Brown in the recruiting process especially commitments like quarterback Aaron Murray and offensive tackle Austin Long. He commented on commitments helping him in the recruiting process like Murray and Long, "It feels real good because for the next four years I am going to be on a team with those guys. It's cool."
When asked if Brown would be able to make a commitment before the end of his senior season he commented, "I highly doubt it." He went on to say, "The next time I will have a cut in my list is when I decide."
Another SEC school recruiting Brown hard is Florida. On his visit to Tennessee he was able to get a good idea of the Gator's strength. Brown commented on the Gators, "Florida is fast. They are the fastest team in the nation. I don't care what anyone says." He also said of an upcoming visit to Gainesville, "I'm going when they play LSU."
The 2008 season has gone well for Brown and the Memphis-Harding Academy Lions so far. He commented, "If we keep playing the way we are playing then we should go all the way."
