Sammy Brown Recaps Georgia Visit

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image source="featured_image" img_size="large"][vc_column_text]In a loaded 2024 class in the state of Georgia, Jefferson High School’s 5-star Sammy Brown leads the way. The 6’2, 223 pound Brown plays both running back and linebacker for Jefferson but projects as a linebacker at the next level. Despite just finishing his sophomore year, he is already a priority recruit for several schools including the reigning national champions Georgia Bulldogs. Recently, the high-profile Brown visited Georgia to get a better feel for what they can offer him as a program.

On the unofficial visit, he was able to talk to Georgia co-defensive coordinator and inside linebackers coach Glenn Schumann. Brown said his connection with Schumann is a major part of why he is interested in Georgia. “He’s really a genuine person. He’s not going to say one thing and do another. He really cares about me as a person, not just a recruit.” This genuineness has kickstarted the relationship between the two and has placed the Bulldogs in a good spot with the 5-star.

Schumann isn’t the only coach standing out to Brown, however. The entire staff has stood out to the recruit. “It was fun to see all the coaches competing against each other and see their competitive natures.” This competitive nature that they carry onto the practice field, film room, and ultimately game day drives the constantly winning program on the field and the recruiting trail. “It really plays a great reflection on the elite coaches that Georgia has. Their success can almost directly be pointed back to their coaches’ [competitive nature].” Their recent recruiting classes and the success the staff has had developing those recruits into a champion team support this claim.

Georgia is making the in-state Sammy Brown a priority early for the 2024 class. Despite going to school just 30 minutes away, Brown says that distance will not play a major role in his recruitment but rather the people will. “When I make my decision, I want to go to a place that has great people with the right mindset to help me on and off the field. They’re going to help me past college football into the years ahead.” Georgia’s coaching staff seems to be making a genuine connection with the five-star and that will go a long way in how he views the Bulldogs.

While Georgia is working hard to build a connection with Sammy Brown, they are not alone. Brown tells us that several schools are recruiting him hard currently. “Schools that are recruiting really hard would be Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio State, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma.” This spring, he has visited the likes of Tennessee, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Georgia. There is a lot to love about the player and person. On the field, Brown is a competitor at heart. “I really pride myself in the physicality and effort [I play with] as well as my speed.” Despite just playing 6 games, the two-way star put up 750 rushing yards and 52 tackles. His high school, Jefferson, went 9-2 last season with both losses by a combined 7 points. Brown was on the sideline with injury for both of those games and he’s not taking this season for granted. He is challenging himself and the rest of the team to give everything they have on every single rep, down, and play. With Brown back for Jefferson, the Dragons have high expectations this season.

Sammy Brown has quickly become a priority linebacker target for several of the top programs in the country. He has all the athletic tools needed with great size, strength, and toughness. Add in his blazing 4.35 speed at that size along with his state champion wrestling skills and his potential is through the roof. As he continues to step up in leadership during his upcoming junior season, he will quickly become a household name at the next level. Georgia, Tennessee, and Clemson are schools that have made an impression early on the standout linebacker.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
