Cincinnati Football Recruiting: George Brown Jr. Receives Offer From Illinois

George Brown Jr. may only be a 2015 recruit, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting an early start on the recruitment process. The 2015 recruit received his fifth offer on Sunday from the Illinois Fighting Illini.

The tight end from Ohio has received five early offers from the Illinois Fighting Illini, Bowling Green Falcons, Cincinnati Bearcats, Kentucky Wildcats, and Vanderbilt Commodores.

Brown Jr. has also received some early interest from the Duke Blue Devils, Florida State Seminoles, Iowa Hawkeyes, LSU Tigers, Miami Hurricanes, Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Ohio State Buckeyes, Virginia Tech Hokies, and West Virginia Mountaineers.

The Big Ten as a conference has shown some early interest in him.

Right now, he has five Big Ten teams interested in him with one offer. However, he did attend the Purdue Boilermakers’ Junior Day on February 24th.

Even though it is VERY early in Brown Jr.’s recruiting, one team to look out for will be the Virginia Tech Hokies. This is because he has family ties to Virginia Tech. George’s older brother, Aaron Brown, was an offensive tackle for the Hokies in the mid-to-late 2000’s.

Brown Jr. is a 6’6″, 253 pound tight end from Cincinnati, Ohio. He is currently a sophomore at Colerain High School.
