Tarpon Springs OT/DT Clay Paino is down to two schools -- Brown and Holy Cross -- and right now Brown holds a slight lead.

Paino will visit Brown this weekend.

The Bears have been one of the top teams in the Ivy League in recent seasons. They were third in the conference standings in 2009.

“I think he’s going to end up at Brown,” Tarpon Springs coach George Kotis said. “It’s an awesome program. He got to meet with (the Bears’) head coach a couple weeks ago. They have a very similar philosophy to the offensive line that we have.”

Paino’s older brother also plays in the Ivy League; he’s a linebacker for league champ Penn.

Brown‘s list of alums includes: Chris Berman of ESPN, Ted Turner and John F. Kennedy Jr.
