2017 3-star offensive guard signee Aiden Brown joins Mark Rogers to discuss his signing with Virginia Tech, and the recruiting process as a whole
2017 3-star offensive lineman Aiden Brown, a 6’3″ 285 lbs. signee, joined Mark Rogers on Sunday afternoon to discuss his signing with the Hokies, why he committed so early in July of 2016, and what he expects when he arrives on campus this summer.
The Hokies have a number of early enrollees on campus now participating in spring practice, but that has not deterred the expectations of Brown, who hopes to compete for a spot right away and do whatever he can to get on the field early on at Virginia Tech.
Marshall University was the very first school to offer Aiden Brown, but the offers did not start flowing in rapidly until he attended the Nike SPARQ combine as a junior. After performing well at the scouting combine, which included a 4.5 shuttle run, Brown received 16 offers in total, despite many bigger schools passing on him because of his lack of size.

Virginia Tech was one of two ACC schools to offer a scholarship to Aiden Brown, according to 247Sports, with Wake Forest being the other school to offer Brown during his recruitment. Brown also received interest from the University of Maryland, which makes sense given that he is a native of Potomac, Maryland, where he attended The Bullis School.
