Branisel says that the new attention and offers are nice. He knows that's better to be wanted than looking for the attention. However, if signing day was today he's pretty sure that he would be inking with the Bearcats.
"It's always great to pick up these new offers and know that people are interested in you; especially from a program like that (Nebraska). It's an honor to be wanted by so many schools.
"I think that I am, I know that I am, going to go with my gut and go with Cincinnati I am pretty sure. The coaches and campus are nice there and it felt like home there. I didn't feel like I had to visit anywhere else. I can play early there too."
If you ask Branisel about his status he'd say that he's "open". Open though isn't saying that he's not committed. In fact, all that it would really mean is that he's still talking to schools and still evaluating schools, but still committed to Cincy.
"I am open, for everything, but schools have got to know that I am committed to Cincinnati. I am going to keep talking to other programs that way if Cincinnati decides they didn't want me then I have other options."
