Holding a baby gator during his announcement, Winston Woods (Cincinnati, Ohio) offensive tackle George Brown verbally committed to play for the Florida Gators.
According to Rivals.com, Brown is rated as the No. 118 overall prospect in the country and No. 13 overall offensive tackle.
Rivals.com recruiting analyst Josh Helmholdt was on the scene during Brown’s commitment and spoke to him about his decision.
“I picked the University of Florida because of the coaches there, I know some of the players there and it seems like a great fit for me,” Brown said. “I have a great relationship with Coach (Mike) Summers, and he has known my dad for awhile. Also, the people around the campus, you can tell they actually care about you.”
“I have been talking to Chaz Green a lot, Duke Dawson and David Sharpe,” Brown said. “They say they like it a lot down there. Chaz Green, I think, is going to be a fifth-year senior and he said he’s loved it, it’s a great place to be and I should come there.
Brown chose the Gators over Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and LSU. It is obvious Brown appealed to the idea of playing for the best conference in the country, the SEC.
“It’s the best conference out there right now, and I want to play against the best,” Brown stated.
