The puzzle of rebuilding Georgia's depth-depleted offensive line got another piece Wednesday with a commitment from Chester Brown, a 2012 prospect from Bradwell Institute in Hinesville.
Brown confirmed his decision to Dawgs247, saying he called UGA coach Mark Richt with the news.
"He was surprised," Brown said. "He was like 'I thought you would never call' ... It was just the people at Georgia, the coaches and the atmosphere I felt when I was there."
The 6-foot-6, 335-pound Brown emerged recently as a sleeper prospect. He visited campus leading up to DawgNight and picked up an offer in the process.
He becomes Georgia's 12th commitment to the 2012 class and the second offensive lineman, joining five-star prospect John Theus.
A California native who later moved to Georgia, Brown projects as an offensive guard at the next level but it hasn't been ruled out that he could play tackle as well.
