With over 35 offers, OL Orlando Brown, Jr. (6-8 343) of Suwanee, GA has USC, Georgia, Florida, Ohio State, Alabama, Michigan, Iowa and Oregon as his top eight in no order.
Brown also has an offer from Clemson. "They're recruiting me pretty hard and I'm interested in them too," said Brown. "Just because a team is not in my top eight, it doesn't mean I'm not interested."
As for USC he said, "They write me a letter pretty much every day and are recruiting me hard. I talk to coach (G.A.) Mangus. They're a great program and they like big offensive linemen."
Brown has not visited USC but plans to do so "in the very near future". He said that he would also like to visit Southern Cal and Oregon, among other West Coast schools, as well as Iowa, Michigan and Wisconsin.
Never miss a local story.
He will narrow his list, "when the time is right." Brown does not have a leader.
