    5* Derrick Brown ranks high on Tennessee's board. Size, strength, agile for a big man (reminds me a little of Big John), with a mean streak. Stripling is his primary.

    Released his top eight

    Looks like it'll be tough for anyone to get this kid away from UGA.

    Best way to steal recruits like this is to give em a beat down and win the east.

    Brown impressed. Apparently, had "one hell of a visit"

    Still, it will be near impossible to overcome #1 Georgia #2 Auburn, imo

    Brown on one of his five OV choices

    I think he's going to see how much money he can get. Understandable.

    If Tennessee can't outbid MSU, there's something wrong

    These won't be bids. These will be deposits.

    The one thing that can't be forgotten in this, with his family all over Starkville, they will be getting new jobs. It's hard for the out of town schools to compete with that.

    We made up ground here and he will take his final OV to UT. I like where this one is headed.

    Derrick Brown -- Georgia's No. 1 prospect for 2016 according to 247Sports, said to be considering both Georgia and Tennessee as finalists -- spoke to Scout following his unofficial visit to Neyland Stadium and appeared to come away very impressed.

    "This visit definitely helped Tennessee," said Brown. "It beat my expectations by a lot.

    "It was definitely a great environment Saturday. It is the loudest place I have ever been. After talking to the coaches a little bit after the game, I put my headphones on to listen to music and my ears were still ringing from the noise in the stadium. I could barely hear the music."

    Brown even compared his experience to being at Auburn during Chris Davis' famous Kick Six play against Alabama in 2013.

    "I was at Auburn a couple of years ago when Chris Davis ran that ball back against Alabama, and it was louder than that."

    Could Tennessee have pushed passed the in-state Bulldogs for Brown with the win? Likely not, while the game environment was impressive, the time spent with the Tennessee coaching staff may prove to be the biggest pull for Brown.

    "They just keep telling me they want me to be a part of it there at Tennessee," said Brown. "They have told me it is about family there, not about individuals, and I see that."
