ATHENS - Georgia has picked up a very large commitment to its 2013 recruiting class.
Trenton Brown, who stands 6-foot-8 and weighs a bit over 340 pounds, is a sophomore at Georgia Military College. Brown committed on Friday to play for Georgia, and plans to enroll in January.
Bert Williams, the head coach at GMC, said Brown had offers from a number of other schools, such as Florida, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Arizona.
"Anybody that needed an offensive tackle," Williams said.
Williams said Brown is athletic and has "huge reach," which isn't surprising for someone at his height.
"He can do everything you want a tackle can do," Williams said. "He's got good strength for a long-armed guy."
Brown is thus in position to give the Bulldogs' some much-needed help immediately. He will have two years of eligibility, with the ability to take a redshirt year. Brown is originally from Albany.
This gives Georgia 24 commitments for the 2013 class, and Brown is the fourth offensive lineman.
Georgia only signed three offensive lineman in the 2013 class, and all three are already working second-team in preseason practice.
Brown's commitment is also important because the Bulldogs are seeking as many early enrollments as possible, in order to reach their goal of signing up to 34 players in the 2013 class.
