The Wolverines will be in search of corners for the 2005 class. With the pending graduation of two seniors after next season, landing a few prospects that can play out on an island will be of huge importance. One name that has surfaced recently is Dayton Chaminade-Julienne’s Brandon Harrison. The maize and blue joined the likes of Iowa (offer), Ohio State, Penn St, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Alabama, and West Virginia in showing early interest. With a number of Chaminade-Julienne alums that have moved on to Ohio State and the majority of his area being Buckeye country, one might think that Brandon is a huge Buckeye fan. While he has certainly followed the Scarlet and Grey, Brandon indicated that it was a little early to put them out front. “I don’t really have a favorite,” Brandon said. “I didn’t really have a team growing up. I just grew up a fan of college football.”
Brandon told the Pitt insiders site (for story, click here) that he wanted to make an early decision, which is something that he and teammate Javon Ringer have discussed with one another. Both are looking to eliminate that as a distraction heading into their final campaign. Brandon has already started taking unofficial visits and plans to make another one very soon. However, he hasn’t really thought about summer camps up until this point. “I already visited O-State and I’m going up to Michigan for their junior day next weekend,” Brandon said. “As far as camps go, I know I’m going to the Nike camp, but I haven’t made any other camp plans yet.
As with all prospects, there are certain things Brandon is going to be looking for in a school. “I’ll be looking at the relationship between the players and coaches,” Harrison said. It was also clear in our conversation that academics will also play a huge part. Brandon has already has determined what he’d like to study. “I want to major in medicine and minor in criminal law.”
Harrison's stats: 5-9, 190 lbs., 4.45 in the 40, 4.15 shuttle, 32 inch vertical. He is considered the #2 junior cornerback in Ohio, after Cleveland Glenville's Jamario O'Neal (OSU commit).
GBW will be in contact with Brandon again after his junior day visit.
