Brandon Minor Raves About Michigan Visit

Recruiting is now the focus for Richmond, Va., running back Brandon Minor. The Varina High School star played in only three games this past season due to injury, but his outstanding sophomore and junior seasons make him a hot prospect, and his top four consists of some of the biggest programs in college football. He enjoyed his second official visit this weekend, spending time in Ann Arbor with the Michigan team. He spoke with about this visit, and how it affected his choice.

Running back may not appear to be a big need to Michigan this recruiting season. Mike Hart, Kevin Grady, Max Martin, and others bring a wealth of young talent and experience to the team. However, that fact doesn't seem to faze Varina High School star Brandon Minor. "It's just like anything else," he said. "If you work hard you get results. I got to hang out with those guys (Hart and Grady) and had a great time."

Minor was on his second official visit of this recruiting season, and said the trip was better than he expected. "I really liked hanging out with the players and especially the coaches; we got along great," he said. "I was very impressed with the facilities, the weight room and the rehab center, the training table. Everything was very nice."

Morgan Trent hosted the 6-foot-0, 210-pound Minor. "I also got to meet (fellow visitors) Obi Ezeh and McKenzie Mathews," Minor said. "I know Ezeh committed, but Mathews didn't. We all got along well."

Minor has already visited Tennessee, and will trip to Miami next weekend. He will complete his official visit schedule at Virginia Tech on Jan. 6. "I got to see more of the players and coaches during my trip to Michigan," he said. "At Tennessee they were playing a game, so were thinking about that. At Michigan they were all on us." Even with the high marks for the visit, Minor said none of this top four lead for his signature in February.

He also participates on the track team, running the 100 and 200-meters, along with the 4X100 relay and the high-jump. He said he also throws the discus. "I just do it to stay in shape," he said. "I won't do any track in college."

Expect a decision as close to Signing Day as possible, according to Minor.
