This Braun kid sounds like he will be making his own decision based on which school gives him the best chance to get to the next level. He may choose UF just to see how he fares against SEC competition. At UM he would be facing the same teams he did at GT.

He may choose UM to prove he can pass block ,something he was rarely asked to do at GT. Whatever the reason, he doesn't sound like someone that will be influenced by the typical recruiting pitch. He knows what he specifically is looking for and that is where he will go.
Sounds like Braun has an active brain and is willing to use it... the typical pitch will not be very effective..
I .respect his due diligence, but I would still love the fact that he could seriously consider the U, and head for the Gables, as a final decision.
One question, how tight is his father with our Coaching group?..after Coaching at Lincoln and Leon up there?...

Giant gaping hole at LG gets wiped away by landing this guy, but he might shy away from here since we're the only team that plays GT.

Miami is playing catch up if he's searching out a top-tier football program. The move to Manny has things trending up, but Braun got a first-hand look when GT kicked our butts last fall. Believe this is a long-shot.

Not about winning for a guy like this. It’s about PT and showcasing his ability. He’s a lock to start here.

I’m not getting a real positive feeling about this guy.

He could’ve visited anywhere for the next weekend but he chose Texas. Just not feeling that his interest is that high in Miami.

If he wanted to visit here, he would visit here, and he would say he’s going to visit here. Period. Finito. End of story.

At this point they’re not even committing to making a visit. And as we all know, no visit, no commitment, no signing

He's damn sure not worried about PT. He's a multi-year starter and all-conference player at Georgia Tech. No matter he lands, he's gonna start.

Eh, being a linemen at GT & being a linemen elsewhere are much different.

Yes it is. Again, he's going to start no matter if he goes to Florida, Texas, Ohio State or Savannah State. And he'd be a starter at Miami from Day 1.

All I’m saying is he is a 100% lock starter here. No competition. But you’re prob right as well.

This kids experience has been diluted mainly due to scheme. He was successful at GT but only because of the scheme that they played with a triple option (more or less figuring out who you are blocking in presnap reads) I believe that he is trying to figure out where he will fit in on a normal offense and whether he will come in and start so that he can make it to the next level. Even though he played the same teams at GT, any new offense is a completely new ball game to him and he is trying to determine which one makes the most sense for him to compete on. Seems like a bright enough kid to go think things through and not rush a crucial decision. Hopefully he recognizes that his best opportunity is here and he comes to the U!

The kid is tough and talented enough that he'll start wherever he goes. If it was as simple as playing in a different scheme or "normal offense,'' he could just stay at GT as Paul Johnson has followed Mark Richt into retirement. Hopefully he'll find his way to Miami.

Agreed. He is probably not going to sign with us!

We’ve spanked Gt over the last 15 years... he’s been on the winning end once.
