The Florida Gators hosted Georgia Military College (Milledgeville, Ga.) offensive tackle Trenton Brown this past weekend for an official visit.
“It was an eye opener,” said the 6-foot-8, 350-pound Brown, a UGA commit. “I saw an opportunity there to come in and play there at left tackle. Their left tackle, well, two tackles are leaving at the end of the year. Both of them are seniors. They got a freshman behind that guy, the left tackle, and I guess they don’t know if he’s ready or not or they might move him to guard, but they said I would be playing tackle.”
Brown touched on his favorite part of the trip.
“Being around the other JUCO guys from Florida," he said, "explaining how their transition was and how everything the coaches told them in their recruiting process has came into fruition.”
When asked where his commitment to the Bulldogs stands at this time, Brown admitted he is considering opening up his recruitment again.
“I don’t know. I was going to talk to my coaches about opening things back up,” Brown said. “I want to see all my options.”
Prior to the Florida visit, Brown used officials to Texas A&M and Ole Miss. He currently has visits scheduled to Arizona on Oct. 25 and Georgia on the weekend of Nov. 24.
While he mulls over the idea of opening up his recruitment, who does Brown have as his current favorite?
“Florida,” Brown said bluntly. “I feel like they are being more upfront with me than Georgia, because Georgia didn’t say anything to me about playing guard when I went on my unofficial visit in early June.”
In the end, the four-star junior college prospect is looking for an opportunity to play tackle on the next level.
“I want to get a degree, first of all," Brown said, "and I want to go somewhere I like the people and I can come and have an opportunity to play tackle and not guard."
247Sports currently ranks Brown, an Albany, Ga., native, as the nation’s No. 10 junior college prospect.
