Georgia Tech has had success in recruiting defensive linemen from the state of Louisiana. Hahnville High School recruit and Louisiana Tech commit Fred Brown is one of the latest Tech targets.

Georgia Tech Coach Ted Roof was at Hahnville Monday to evaluate Brown. Coach Roof let Brown's coach know that Tech is interested in Brown, after watching his film. "Coach Roof asked if anything would stop me from making a visit to Georgia Tech and he was told there would be nothing that would stop me from making a visit."

Brown is looking to visit Tech this summer and he has indicated that he is interested in Tech. "I know players like Daryl Richard, Greg Gathers, Kerry Watkins, and few others have come out of Louisiana and attended Georgia Tech. It is a school in which I have interest."

The connection he's made with Coach Roof is important to Fred. "He is very personable and I like him a lot." Brown knows that Coach Roof played linebacker for Tech and feels he could learn a lot from him.

Texas and Mississippi State are two of the schools recruiting Brown the hardest right now. "Now that Georgia Tech is showing interest, it makes it even better."

Fred currently holds four offers. Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, McNeese State, and Arkansas State are the schools that have offered Brown.

He is listed as a defensive tackle but schools are recruiting Brown to play both tackle and defensive end. "Ideally, I'd prefer to play on the edge and be a pass rusher. I feel I do that the best."

Although he is committed to Louisiana Tech, Fred considers himself wide open right now.

Brown wants to major in engineering so education will play a role in his decision. Distance will not be a factor in his decision. Brown is looking for a school where he feels comfortable. "If I were to go to Georgia Tech, that is not too far. I have two cousins that live in Atlanta and I like the city."
