Brandon Spikes is one of the top linebacker prospects in the country. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound talent has over 20 offers, but has his list already down to five. "I like North Carolina State, Florida, Oklahoma, Michigan, and Virginia," he told GoBlueWolverine. "I don't really have a favorite." He recently told Scout.com that Michigan, Florida, Florida State, and LSU were recruiting him the hardest.
Spikes told GBW he's looking for a school that offers everything for him academically, athletically, and socially. Is staying close to home abother criteria? "Location is not a problem," he said. "All the schools on my list have what I'm looking for."
He also told GBW that he calls and talks to his Michigan recruiter (Coach Campbell) all the time and likes Michigan because, "It is a winning program, and they are always one of the top teams in the country."
At this time, Spikes said he is planning on hitting the Nike Camp in Atlanta, and isn't sure about school camps.
One thing Spikes is certain of -- his position. "I see some sites have me listed as a defensive end," he said. "I don't play defensive end, I'm a linebacker all the way."
For his junior year Spikes reports 98 tackles, four sacks, seven forced-fumbles, and four interceptions. "I missed two games last season because of a hip-pointer," he said. Crest is coming off back-to-back state titles.
Spikes said he would like to major in communications, and reports a 2.95 grade-point-average.
He is considering graduation early, but said if he doesn't, he'll wait until Signing Day to make his decision.
