Recruiting started fast and furious for offensive lineman Aaron Brown of Cincinnati (Oh.) Princeton. Brown's early offer list rivaled that of any of the country, and since then, colleges just kept coming forward with offers. Now, however, the time has come for Brown to focus on the final list of candidates from which he will choose his college.

The recruiting process has been a hectic one for offensive lineman Aaron Brown, as he has had five dozen colleges extend a scholarship offer his way. Aaron and his father George have decided that the time has come to focus on the final contenders.

"It was time to narrow things down and get focused on making a decision," George Brown said. "All the schools on the list are now at ground zero. They are all
starting over. It is time for the five coaching staffs to make an impression on Aaron."

George Brown is leaving that final choice entirely up to Aaron.

"He is about to make the first real adult decision of his life," George Brown said. "It will be his decision and his decision only. It doesn't matter where I want him to go.

"We talked over his final list of five, but now it is on him. He is going to spend at least three years and maybe as many as five years of his life wherever he decides to go, so the choice must be his."

In the meantime, Aaron has been working out hard.

"Aaron is working out five times a week come rain or shine," George Brown said. "He is squatting over 500 lbs for one rep and he is benching 225 for 13 reps. We are working on hand fighting techniques.

"He was checked just yesterday and weighed in at 292 and was 6-6 1/4 in his stocking feet. It now all about preparation. He is going to be more ready and in better shape than at any time in his life. One thing Aaron is determined to do is not be outworked."

Aaron Brown is scheduled to take an official visit to Ohio State during the weekend of Sept. 10. He plans on visiting Auburn on 9/3, Louisville on 9/17, Virginia Tech on 9/24, and Miami (Fla.) on 10/1. Purdue is also reportedly still under consideration. All six schools have offered scholarships.
