About three months ago, George Brown received a scholarship offer from Army.
This past July, the Chancellor (Fredericksburg, VA) defensive lineman took a visit to the military academy at West Point, NY.
On Monday, Brown announced his verbal commitment, to what NFL Hall of Famer Al Davis used to refer to as, “The Black Knights Of The Hudson”.
“I’ve always been interested in serving, and just the networking for after I’m done finishing my service is just amazing,” he said. “It’ll really help me be successful in life. And it’s big time football. Who doesn’t like that?”
It’s certainly enough to like for Brown, considering he does not plan to visit any more schools, except Army this upcoming college season. He also holds offers from Monmouth and Robert Morris, and experienced a plethora of trips last Fall with unofficial visits to West Virginia (Sept. 12), Virginia (Sept. 25), Maryland (Oct. 3), Virginia Tech (Oct. 24), Charlotte (Nov. 14) and Rutgers (Nov. 28).
“Strictly Army this Fall,” Brown said. “I’m fully committed.”
The Black Knights coaching staff believes the nose guard position is the incoming senior’s best fit. Brown possesses natural skills at the interior of a defense, which fit in both 4-3 and 3-4 defensive schemes, along with nickel, dime and quarters sub packages. The 2017 prospect provides the hand technique off the line of scrimmage to get to the quarterback and support the run.
“I plan on leading my team to state,” he said of the upcoming high school campaign. “I truly feel we have the potential to win it all or at the very least, wake some people up.”
