Earlier in the day, a report surfaced indicating five-star defensive tackle Derrick Brown had narrowed down his top schools to Auburn, Tennessee and Alabama.
Georgia and Mississippi State, two programs he’s held in high regard in recent months, were not among them.
But according to Brown’s mother, Martha, Georgia’s top-rated prospect has not communicated that to his family.
“No, that hasn’t been discussed with us,” Brown’s mother told SEC Country. “That would’ve been discussed with us if he had done something like that. Everyone is still in it. We haven’t actually sat down and talked about it. We have our board on the refrigerator, the ups and downs, and who is doing what on defense. When it comes to making a final decision … we haven’t sat down to narrow it down. That has not happened.”
Brown, one of the top remaining uncommitted prospects in the country, still has an official visit in place to Tennessee this weekend. Per his mother, he will arrive at a decision afterwards.
“We’ll sit down on Monday and talk,” she said. “We will get in touch with some of the schools that he’s not going to so maybe they can offer the scholarship to somebody else.”
The 6-foot-3, 317-pound senior from Buford, Ga., is rated as the No. 9 prospect in the country in this year’s recruiting class. Currently, the Bulldogs have a 62 percent chance of landing his signature, per the 247Sports Crystal Ball, which tracks the predictions of reporters around the country.
