By Joe Vitale:
The top player in the state of Georgia, Derrick Brown, has committed to Auburn University over the in-state Georgia Bulldogs.
Derrick Brown is a five-star DT out of Lanier High School in the class of 2016. At 6’3″ and 317 pounds, the 17 year old recruit ranks as the nation’s No. 9 player, 4th DT and the state of Georgia’s top overall player.
Missing out on the state’s top overall player definitely hurts, especially considering who we lost him to, but this class is loaded nonetheless and will certainly do great things for years to come in the Classic City.
