JC offensive lineman Trenton Brown has officially de-committed from UGA.
The move did not come as a surprise for UGA, as Brown had been hinting at it for a couple of weeks. Two recruiting websites, ESPN and 247sports, went ahead and removed Brown’s name from the list of UGA’s 2013 commitments last week.
On Wednesday, Brown’s coach at Georgia Military junior college said the 6-foot-8, 360-pounder had informed UGA’s coaches last week that he was opening back up his recruitment, according to the Athens Banner-Herald’s Marc Weiszer:
“From what he told me, he felt like he wasn’t shot straight with what their plans for him were,” Bert Williams said. “I can tell (Brown and his father) were kind of upset with things as far as what they anticipated him playing.”
Brown wanted to play offensive tackle, but was worried that UGA might play him at guard.
The Bulldogs now have 27 commitments for its 2013 class, including four offensive linemen. The Bulldogs will likely sign at least one more. Brown is now looking at Florida, Texas A&M, Arizona State, Ole Miss and UGA, according to the report. Brown told ESPN, even before he de-committed from UGA, that Florida is his leader.
