Alan Branch: "Man, That was Impressive"

That is what Cibola High School (Albuqurque, NM) DE <b>Alan Branch</b> had to say about Michigan's 38-0 trouncing of Notre Dame. GBW spoke to Branch Saturday evening. Is a visit to Ann Arbor set?

"I talked to Coach English and Coach Sheridan recently. Coach English is setting things up for me to visit on October 17th," said Alan Branch (U-M Camper, US Army Combine stats: 6-6, 305 lbs., 5.2 in the 40, 4.65 in the shuttle, 2.5 GPA/17 ACT). "I have a game that Thursday so I'll be able to fly up to Michigan early Friday."

Branch said he's watched all of Michigan's games this season, including Saturday's game against Notre Dame, "Man, that was impressive. Beating Notre Dame like that was something else." Along with many of the Wolverine faithful Branch was concerned in the beginning of the season, "After the Central (Michigan) game things looked like they needed some work," Branch said. "But things have looked real good since."

Cibola played Sandia on Friday, coming back from a 12 point deficit to pull out a 13-12 victory, their first of the year, "We struggled last week and started off slow last night, but we pulled it out," Branch said. "I had 2 catches for about 40 yards. On defense I had two sacks and four tackles."

Branch has said in previous interviews that he wishes to discuss school choices with his father, he said this evening, "No, we still haven't really found the time to do it. We are on such different schedules it's hard to connect."

He does have another visit set though, "I'll be visiting Arizona State on October 4 for their game against USC. Other than that I don' have any other visits set up. I am looking at Washington as a possible visit, as well as Texas A&M but nothing is set up yet."

Cibola plays Del Norte at home on Thursday September 18.
