Brandt Taking It Slow; Has Pac 10 Visit Set

CHICAGO -- Scout.com attended the Full Package Athletics Fall league and following his game got a chance to chat with Angus Brandt about his college situation.

Angus Brandt is set on waiting until the second signing period to make his college decision.

"As of now I'm just talking to the schools and taking it slow," Brandt said. "I just want to watch the teams during the season."

The 6-foot-10, 220-pound big man became a hot recruiting target after his impressive play throughout the July evaluation period, and now is one of the top post prospects available.

Among the schools involved with Brandt, a standout at Lake Forest (Ill.) Academy, are Arizona State, Colorado, Michigan, Washington State, Oregon State, Georgia Tech and New Mexico.

"There have been a lot of coaches come through," Brandt said. "I'm just trying to take it slow."

Although the Australia native doesn't plan to make his decision until the spring, he has started taking visits. He recently took a trip to a Big Ten program and is planning a visit to a Pac 10 squad.

"I did an unofficial visit up to Michigan a few weekends ago," Brandt said. "I had a good time. I played with the team and I went to my first college football game. It was a cool atmosphere."

"I'm going to Oregon State on November 1st and I'm going to go to Colorado at some point," he continued.

With recruiting on the backburner, Brandt has spent a lot of time working out. Since moving to the United States, he's made strides on both ends of the floor, but it's his post game that he thinks he's improved the most.

"I guess I jump better and my upper body strength is better," the four-star prospect said. "I also shoot the ball a lot better. My low post game is about 10 times better."

Brandt is ranked No. 86 overall and No. 15 at the center position.
