Photo: Kirby Smart Takes Helicopter To See 5-Star DT Derrick Brown

Five-star defensive tackle Derrick Brown, as we just noted earlier this morning, will be making his final decision on where he'll play his collegiate football next Wednesday - on National Signing Day. One head coach made sure to make it clear that he's interested in the 6-foot-4, 320-pound star.

Thursday morning, Georgia's Kirby Smart arrived in a helicopter at Brown's high school - Lanier - to make one last push. The school itself tweeted some photos:

Brown, earlier in the day, refuted a report that he was down to Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee. Could Smart's grand entrance help solidify the Bulldogs a huge recruit?
