Brandon Hoey is up to ten written offers; Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa State, Colorado, Wyoming, Indiana, Central Florida, Arkansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. "I really like all those schools right now," Hoey remarked. "I am not ready to rule out anybody so I am taking all of the schools that have offered me seriously."
Colorado, Central Florida and Nebraska like him as an offensive lineman. All others see him as a defensive lineman (most likely tackle). "I have always played some offensive line and some defensive line, so I like both sides of the ball. It really doesn't matter to me where I play when I get to college."
Hoey lists his strengths as a player. "I can control my opponent on either side of the ball. I also have good speed and agility."
He has not scheduled any official visits yet. Three Big 12 North schools have as good a shot as any of getting visits. "Iowa State has great coaches. That really sticks out to me about them - they have really good coaches. I can't emphasize enough how personable their coaches are.
"The main thing I like about Nebraska is their academics and how they always have a lot of academic All-Americans. They have a great program and have had many Heisman winners.
"Colorado is a good program with a good history. I don't know the coaches too well, yet, but I am assuming I will take a trip there."
Hoey's mom was nearby duirng the conversation and she says her favorite schools are Iowa State, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. "My dad isn't here so I am not sure who his favorites are."
The lineman carries a 3.0 core GPA and scored a 23 on the ACT. He is undecided on a major.
