Former Westover star Trenton Brown had a great true freshman season at Georgia Military College, where he started every game and didn’t allow a sack all year. Major colleges have taken notice, and this week Brown was offered a scholarship by UGA.
MILLEDGEVILLE — At 6-foot-7 and 330 pounds, Trenton Brown is hard to miss.
And Georgia saw him right away.
The Bulldogs offered the standout lineman for Georgia Military College a scholarship this week, marking the former Westover star’s second major offer from a Division I program.
“I’d say it’s my first big offer,” Brown told The Herald by telephone Friday. “I also got an offer from Louisiana-Lafayette, but Georgia is one of those schools I’ve always liked, and they’re in my Top 5.”
Brown just finished a stellar freshman season at GMC, where he started every game and didn’t give up a sack all year.
“I was pretty happy with how I played as a true freshman,” Brown said. “Not allowing any sacks was something I was really proud of.”
Brown, of course, has plenty of time to mull UGA’s offer and hasn’t signed anything yet. After all, he expects —and hopes — more offers are on their way.
“My Top 5 is Georgia, LSU, Florida State, Alabama and Texas,” said Brown, who added he did have a favorite on that list. “Growing up, I really liked Florida State.”
FSU is coming off a 2012 National Signing Day during which the Seminoles snagged the No. 2-rated class in the nation, while Georgia, the defending SEC East champs, was No. 5, according to ESPN.com. Alabama was ranked No. 1.
Brown, who was an Albany Herald Dynamite Dozen selection his junior and senior years at Westover, said he heard about the offer from GMC head coach Joe Windon.
“He just came up and told me he had good news,” Brown recalled. “He said Georgia offered me a scholarship. We were both excited.”
Brown graded out at 93 percent on the offensive line his senior season at Westover.
