5-Star DT Andrew Brown Planning Visit

Submitted by icefins26 on May 20th, 2013 at 10:39 AM

From gathering various bits of information around the Twitterz, it sounds like DT Andrew Brown is visiting in the next couple months.

Rivals hints at it with his photo on TheWolverine.com on Rivals:

Hoke and company doing work in the Mid-Atlantic states.  Yes, please.

i read an article today from a recruiting guy who said because of Mattison's coaching and previous experience coaching a huge DT with great strength he could see Mone being a first round pick in a couple of years. That would be a great turn out for us i would say

Weird to think about how Mone could be our "under the radar" guy when its all said and done, as far as the line is concerned. He really shouldn't even be under the radar. I've seen different sites say that if he just went to more camps, he'd probably be a top-100 recruit.

Here is the Hudl.com video (LINK)

According to this, last season he had 83 tackles, 14 TFLs and 11 sacks. The video highlights a fair number of the tackles for loss and the sacks, but they all look pretty good overall. Brown seems like he could dominate up front.

or at least a sleeping top 25 team. It's a lot like Michigan: great academics, beautiful campus and they're in a talent rich state. They just lack a 100,000 seat stadium and football tradition. They strike me as a UCLA or Texas A&M. There's so much talent in their area that someone's going to figure it out eventually and make them a good team

Since Mattison likes to rotate on the D-Line (I mean, but, what DC doesn't), he should recruit like six 5* DT/DE guys for 2014 and it'll be like unfair by the time the 4th quarter of a game rolls around.  Who cares who "starts"; they'll all play and they'll all get drafted.  You can never have enough of those guys (see: SEC), a deeper DL makes way more difference than a deep secondary or linebacker corps.  Keep 'em coming.

You know, I was fairly nervous on the long term prospects of OL coaching (given how bad we were up front this season, which was inexcusable) but with the OL now being forced to go up against a sick DL every day in practice, we should be fine.

Normally I'd agree with you, but how do we go from having a great rushing attack in 2011 with Denard and Fitz to an essential implosion in 2012, sans Denard? No one in 2011 was recruited for Hoke's scheme on the O-Line, nor were any starters for 2012. Maybe it just means that Molk was really that important to the success of the line, but I don't know.

Brown has family members and coaches who went to UVA and they have been pushing him in that direction.  He is definitely not going to VT and his mom wants him close, but he isn't in love with UVA.  They are the school that has gone after him most often, and many people in his life (that he doesn't wanna dissappoint) have been pushing him, so he's entertained them.  He made a comment that Hand's visit made him take a look at Michigan..plus they have camped together for years.  Michigan with a great visit (as expected) will jump to the front fo the line.  Brown doesn't like the spotlight and is looking to end his recruitment soon
