His Best Fried Plays at UM

When reviewing the tape of incoming freshman defensive tackle Orien Harris from Newark, Del., you can't help but notice a dominating fullback/linebacker, #33.

So I called Newark Coach Butch and asked him who 33 was. Sure enough, it was Brandon Snow.

Snow, who finished second on the team in tackles and sacks behind Harris last year, says he's being recruited mainly as a fullback. Snow says he was 6-1 and 215 when measured at the school last week. That frame goes along with what is probably 4.60 speed, fast enough either way.

Which schools have sent you scholarship offers in the mail: Virginia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Virginia, Penn State, Michigan State, Syracuse, North Carolina, Maryland, and so on and so on.

If signing day were tomorrow, what's it looking like: I really can't say because everything will be based on my visits.

Which schools do you plan on visiting: I don't have any scheduled yet.

What's Miami talking about: Well, they came by here three years in a row now. They recruited Kwame (Harris), then Orien last year. They came by in the spring and also called me on the phone. They're a great program, and should be ranked No. 1 this season. Orien's my best friend, and I'm pretty sure Miami will get one of my official visits.

If those offers are legit (and I believe they are), then Snow is one of the most heavily recruited players in the Northeast region. He says Miami is recruiting him to play fullback, but he's open to having an opportunity at linebacker if he's placed there instead. He's a kid that sounds to me like he just wants to go out and play football, then worry about recruiting after the season, sort of the same approach Kwame and Orien had over the last two years. We came close on Kwame, landed Orien, so hopefully we can grab a Newark star two years in a row.
