Phoebus DB Philip Brown finished his second official visit this weekend, returning from Clemson University.
His first ever visit to Clemson turned out to be a good one.
“It was a good trip,” said Brown. “It was the first time I have ever been down there. The overall atmostphere down there was cool. It seems like everybody knows everybody. I like the coaches and the feel of the school.”
Brown’s first official visit was to Maryland last week. At this point, the outstanding defensive back does not have a leader.
“I don’t have a leader,” said Brown. “I’m not going to have a leader until I am done with all of my visits. I couldn’t name a leader after each official visit, because if I did, it would always be the school that I just visited.
“I am going to take in all of the information after all of my visits and sit and think about everything after I’m finished. They are all good schools, and I’m not going to close the door on any of them. Everyone will know where I’m going on February 5th.”
The next trip will be to Virginia next weekend and Brown then hopes to go to Virginia Tech on January 31st.
“I’m thinking I will visit Virginia Tech on the 31st,” said Brown who is being recruited by Virginia’s Mike London and Virginia Tech’s Jim Cavanaugh. “I’m going to Virginia next week, and I’m going to take my SAT test on the 24th.”
Many factors will come into play for Brown in making his final decision.
“The major factors will be how me and the players and coaches get along,” said Brown. “I need to be comfortable and happy with the coaches, and I also want a good academic support system. I want to major in Communications, like TV or Radio.”
Brown has been a very busy person over the last month or so. In addition to taking his official visits, he is taking an SAT prep course and making a big effort to raise his grades and test score in hopes of meeting the NCAA eligibility standards. His decision likely will not come until signing day.
One of the top prospects in the state, Philip Brown looks like he will indeed visit both Virginia and Virginia Tech – he has offers from both. It looks too close to call...
