Hannah Is High On Mizzou

St. Louis WR gives us the latest on his health, recruiting and Mizzou

It has been  a busy year for Chaminade WR Brandon Hannah 6'3"236lbs 4.5 forty. The talented WR who we first spotted as freshman at a Mizzou one day camp has won a state basketball championship, suffered an serious knee injury, and dealt with school transfers all in that time frame.

I caught up with Brandon Hannah to find out the latest with his health, football and school location.

" I am doing well. My knee is coming along great. I was just at the doctor's office and he said that I am way ahead of schedule on me rehab and healing." said Hannah." I am being cleared to start running next week."

Brandon had tore a couple of ligaments in his knee during fall camp and had to sit out the season. He also transferred from Chaminade to Hazelwood West in the first semester of the 09-10 school year, but he has since returned to Chaminade.

"Yes, sir. I am back at Chaminade and it's great. I won the state championship here and I really enjoy it. It's tough not being able to play basketball again, but I will be back healthy next year to play hoops."

Despite the injury and school transfers, colleges have kept track of Hannah. He reportedly had an early offer from Missouri and is being recruited by several other Big 12 and Big 10 schools.

" I am hearing the most from Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Michigan." Hannah said.

"Iowa invited me to their junior day. I did not go to that one. I was also invited to Missouri's junior day on the 30th and will be at that one for sure."

Brandon seemed excited when he talked about his Missouri junior day visit, so I asked him his thoughts on the Tigers.

"I love Mizzou. I love everything about it. The coaches, the school, the campus. I have been up there for AAU ball and got to check out the campus and town, so I am familiar with it. Plus, it's close to home so my Mom and Dad could come to all my games. I also like their offense and they have my major which is going to be computer technology."

I asked if it would be fair to say that Missouri was his favorite at the moment.

"Yes, sir. Missouri, USC and Florida are my favorite colleges.Those would be my top 3 if I had to list them."

Hannah displayed a lot of ability along with his size as both a freshman and sophomore. He has great hands, which also was obvious on the basketball court as a power forward. His forty time was in the 4.5-4.6 range when healthy.He also showed great composure and awareness on the field.

"I know you always need to continue to work hard and learn as a player. That is what I am going to."

Hannah tells me he is being recruited as a WR although he could continue to grow into a TE in college.
