Well, there’s not much to mention about Brandon that I didn’t write a week ago. He’s a big, strong inside linebacker who fills gaps well and tackles through the ball carrier. Also, according to Lions247, he’s a Nittany Lion. With Penn State in the shadow of what’s going on in Bellefont, just a few miles away, they’ve picked up their 11th verbal commitment of the 2013 class in the new Jersey linebacker.
It almost seems as though Brandon visited back in April and had his heart set on committing ever since. He didn’t visit any other schools between then and now, but once he received his offer to Penn State in late May, he didn’t waste too much time planning a return visit to Happy Valley.
Brandon told me last Wednesday night that he intended to take some visits before committing, including a trip to Rutgers which happened earlier this week.
Brandon is the first linebacker in a recruiting class that should include at least two more, if not a fourth. The linebacker recruiting has been thin over the last two years and the Penn State coaches will need to add some depth with this class.
