Scout TV: Matt Branch (TE/LA)

The Class of 2007 in Louisiana was loaded with tight ends that went on to sign scholarships with BCS schools and it looks like the 2008 class will be in that same boat.

There are several big athletic guys that play on the edge for 2008 that already hold scholarship offers and Sterlington's Matt Branch is one of them.


Branch, a 6-6, 245-pounder with 4.8 speed, was First Team Class 2A All-State selection as a junior. He hauled in 17 passes for 234 yards during the regular season and helped pave the way for the swift running of DeShanti Mitchell.


Check out Branch's junior highlights and see why he has landed early offers from Ole Miss and Tennessee, and why schools such as LSU, Auburn, Oklahoma and others are showing a lot of interest.
