Tigers Offer Godfrey

Brandon Godfrey, the nation's 20th-ranked center prospect, added a new offer today from the University of Memphis. Read further to get the details on Godfrey's recruitment.

Brandon Godfrey (6-4, 280) discussed his most recent offer.

"Coach (Galen) Scott from Memphis wanted me to call him today so we could catch up on things," said Godfrey. "I called him and he told me how Coach (Vance) Vice, the offensive line coach, had looked at my highlight tape, and he said Memphis was offering.

"I also talked to Coach Vice. He said they're looking for physical guys like myself who get after people hard. The Memphis coaches said they want me to be a Tiger. Coach Vice likes offensive linemen like myself who can play multiple positions."

Godfrey has started at both offensive tackle and center for John Curtis, which went 14-0 last year and captured the Class 2A title in convincing fashion with a 33-3 romp over Winnfield.

Tulane, which was Godfrey's first offer, remains the leader but don't count out Memphis.

"I haven't looked deep into Memphis but I'm going to visit," said Godfrey, whose older brother played offensive line at Tulane. "Coach Vice said I'm going to be stunned by the facilities at Memphis.

"Tulane is still the leader. I was on the phone with Tulane tonight. I talk to the offensive line coach two or three times a week, but Coach Lamb also wants me to talk to him regularly. Coach Lamb is my area recruiter who recruits John Curtis. He said they're going to be at our Blue vs. White spring game on Saturday, and that he's looking forward to meeting with me again soon."

Godfrey is considering summer camp at ULM, Louisiana Tech, the UL Ragin' Cajuns and possibly Alabama.

He expects to make a decision and possibly commit somewhere after taking summer visits and camping with the aforementioned schools.

Godfrey set a preliminary date of July 4th for making a decision. He has a teammate, '13 RB Sherman Badie, who also holds offers from Memphis and Tulane.
