As a junior, Brandon Gouin completed 102 passes on 240 attempts for 1,240 yards and eight touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He ran 105 times for 291 yards and two touchdowns. Gouin was named honorable mention all-region. "I have a good work ethic and I am a leader on the field," he explains. "I read defenses well."
He is hearing from a plethora of schools early in the recruiting process. "I have been getting mail from Colorado, Iowa State, Kansas State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Alabama, Stanford, Georgia Tech, Purdue, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Columbia."
He has been invited to junior days by CU, KSU, ISU, Princeton, and Miami. "I am not sure if I will attend any of them. I will be going to the Elite 11 try-outs at Texas A&M on April 22nd and then I'll be at the Nebraska Adidas Camp on April 29th. I might also go to some spring games but I am not sure which ones, yet."
Growing up in Boulder, Gouin has always been fond of the Buffs. "I like Colorado, Stanford and the Ivy League schools. I am looking hard at academics. As far as CU is concerned, I have lived here pretty much my entire life. I like the atmosphere at CU and I hear good things about the new coaches."
Gouin has not yet been to CU on an unofficial visit since the new staff has been in place.
