So far this season Brandner and Heathwood Hall sit at 2-3 on the season with Brandner playing on both sides of the line of scrimmage. In his most recent action, Brandner recored 11 stops against Orangeburg Prep. At Duke he projects as an interior offensive lineman most likely.
"I've been in touch with Coach Jones and Coach Latina about that, and the plan seems to be that I'll most likely be red-shirted next season."
One thing the future Blue Devil believes, however, is that Duke is on the right path and building a positive direction for the future. It's why Brandner turned down several offers including childhood favorite Clemson in favor of Cutcliffe's program.
"It's definiltey headed in the right direction, and I'm really excited to be a part of it. Duke simply overmatched NC Central, and then against Memphis they got 500 yards of offense - there's not really much to say aside from that."
