Radi Nabulsi/ESPN.comThree-star OL Chester Brown still plans to play college football, noting that he hopes the USC Trojans will consider offering.
“I decommitted from UGA,” Brown told DawgNation moments ago. “It was not due to anything bad, and we were not on bad terms. We have never been on bad terms. It was all because of love. It was due to family issues and personal reasons. I still have a lot of love for the UGA family. But there were personal reasons my family was going through that I was trying to deal with. It just came down to the decision of me decommitting from Georgia. When I talked to Coach [Mark] Richt and Coach [Tony] Ball, my recruiter, they were OK with everything, considering the situation that I am going through.”

Brown’s decommitment from Georgia could be the most shocking news of the season so far. He has been a tireless promoter of the Bulldogs and a vocal recruiter among Georgia’s remaining uncommitted targets. He even has a tattoo of the date he committed to Georgia on his left forearm. Brown did not want to discuss the family issues or personal reason that led to his decision. He still plans to play college football.
