According to KSR’s Nick Roush, Barion Brown will be on an official visit with the Kentucky Wildcats this weekend as they take on the 10th-ranked Florida Gators at Kroger Field. Brown was originally scheduled to visit Kentucky for the Week 2 clash with the Missouri Tigers, but it was ultimately postponed.

On3 has Brown ranked as the No. 14 overall player and No. 2 wide receiver in 2022 (their top 20 players are 5-star recruits). Rivals has the Nashville (TN) product ranked No. 53 overall and No. 7 among receivers.
The 6-foot-1, 173-pound Brown has taken three visits, one being to Alabama and two to Ole Miss with Alabama being seen as the favorite to land Brown as of now.
