Buckeyes impress Orlando Brown Jr.

7/14/2012

Orlando Brown Jr. (Duluth, Ga./Peachtree Ridge) saw Friday how big Ohio State is and the 6-foot-8, 370-pound offensive tackle loved it. Brown was in Columbus to visit the campus and the Buckeyes made an impression.

“It was pretty interesting,” Brown said. “I got to meet some of the coaches. I got to check out the campus, which is huge. I got to learn a little bit more -- definitely got to learn a little bit more -- about what they have to offer.”

What Ohio State has to offer might just fit into Brown’s future as the 2014 recruit will no doubt feel the pressure as schools pick up the intensity for his services.

For now, Brown leaves Ohio with a better understanding of what the Buckeyes are all about.

“It’s definitively one of my favorite schools,” Brown said. “I love what they’re doing with the program now and things like that.”

Brown planned on visiting Michigan this weekend as well, but with many of the coaches on vacation said a trip to Ann Arbor has been postponed for a little while.

He’s also going back home with something else.

His father, the late Orlando Brown, played for the Cleveland Browns and Brown Jr. got to reminisce about his days living in Ohio.

“It brought back a whole lot of memories,” Brown Jr. said. “It was nice.”
