Michigan's 14th commitment, Georgia RB Carlos Brown, had officially DROPPED the Wolverines about a week ago. But -- he DID have an 'off the charts' Michigan visit the Nov. 18 OSU game weekend, as he told Sam Webb at the time, a couple days after the visit weekend.

NOTE: this interview took place November 21, 2005.



When Georgia running back Carlos Brown got off the plane for his official visit to Michigan last (that is, the Nov. 18th) weekend, he wasn’t quite sure what to expect. He had heard things about what it might be like, but none of the descriptions captured what he ultimately experienced. “It was off the meter, man,” Brown said of the visit. “I liked everything about it. I came in and went to the hotel with the players and coaches. Then I went and had a real nice dinner at Real Seafood.”

Things only got better the next day when Brown went to the Big House for the first time. Even though the Wolverines lost to arch-rival Ohio State, the southern star was blown away by the game-day atmosphere. “Aww man … the game was off the meter!” he exclaimed. “I know they lost, but they gave it their all. On top of that, the crowd was great! It wasn’t even really that cold. As a matter of fact, the weather won’t even be a factor.”

After the game was over Brown got his first opportunity to speak with the players and coaches at length. They put their disappointment aside and showed their guest a very good time. “The best part of the visit was getting a chance to talk to the players,” Brown said. “I really like the team chemistry there. I had a great host in James McKinney and I got a chance to hang out with Mike Hart that night. The coaches also talked to me. They told me that with hard work I could potentially come in and get some playing time right away.”

With his visit to Ann Arbor now out of the way, Brown looks upon Michigan in an even better light than he did prior to the trip. “I learned a lot about the school and the program when I went up there,” he said. “Michigan definitely has definitely moved up with me now.”

As far as his timetable, he reiterated, "I still plan to graduate early, so I want to make my decision around December 20th.”



Brown picked the Wolverines over Georgia and South Carolina, which he visited the past two weekends.
