Top Kentucky football recruiting target George Brown announced Wednesday night that he has cut his list to eight schools and will announce his college decision July 25.
Brown — a 6-foot-5, 265-pound offensive lineman from Cincinnati — narrowed his list to Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, Oklahoma and Virginia Tech. Rivals.com ranks Brown as the No. 13 offensive tackle and No. 118 overall prospect in the class of 2015. He’s the No. 5 overall recruit from the state of Ohio.
Kentucky already has commitments from six offensive linemen from the class of 2015, but Brown has long been the Wildcats’ No. 1 priority at the position. His cousin and former teammate is defensive back Mike Edwards, who will be a freshman at UK this fall.
Brown’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page is trending heavily toward UK, which has 25 of the 26 predictions in its favor.
