2012 Georgia Football Recruiting: Chester Brown Beefs Up Georgia O-Line

If you’ve ever looked at the gigantic offensive lines of some of the major programs out west and thought to yourself, “Man, when’s Georgia ever gonna recruit a Samoan to our line?”, you’re in luck: The Dawgs signed native Samoan Chester Brown (6’5", 340) on July 20.

While Dawg fans may scratch their heads at why Brown wasn’t pursued by any of the big Southeast football powerhouses — he picked UGA over South Alabama and Georgia State — it’s hard to doubt his drive or athleticism. According to his coach, Jim Walsh Jr., Brown had never played organized football before starting high school at Hinesville’s Bradwell Academy, yet he was deemed worthy of a starting position on the varsity team as a freshman.

Georgia’s coaches are also excited about the fact that Brown’s size is already Division I-caliber. According to Walsh, linemen who have to add a ton of weight are often injury-prone because their bodies aren’t equipped to handle the extra bulk right away — and anyone who’s followed Georgia’s depth-chart saga over the past few months knows that injuries to the offensive line are something the Dawgs can ill afford.
