OL Brandon Shell Profile
Rising junior Brandon Shell out of Goose Creek HS has garnered some early interest in his recruiting.
And there's little doubt why - as an offensive tackle, he's already 6-8 305 pounds.
"When I started playing football they just stuck me there," he told CUTigers in a recent interview.
If the Shell name sounds familiar, that's because, of course, it is. He's the nephew of Hall of Fame lineman and former NFL head coach Art Shell.
Along with an early offer from Clemson, Shell's offers include South Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, South Carolina State and Florida. He'd also like to hear more and receive an offer from Georgia.
The only visits Shell has taken are to the two instate schools, and at this point, he doesn't have any favorites.
Whoever he decides to sign with in 2011, Shell said his school of choice would be decided after evaluating what kind of education he'll receive and which program suits him best.
"Clemson is a good environment. It's got a great education. It's a good school," he said.
Also a basketball player, Shell said he's getting interest from mid-majors for basketball. But his interest lies on the gridiron.
"I've been getting some letters for basketball too," he said. "But, yes sir, I would rather play football in college."
A transfer from nearby West Ashley HS, Shell will be in his first year at Goose Creek, where he and his teammates are talking about a region and 4-A state title.
Shell bench presses 310 pounds, squats 435 and has run a 5.0-second 40-yard dash.
