Omaha's Brandon Teamer - The Latest

Omaha Central Head Coach Joe McMenamin comments on his prized recruit, Brandon Teamer. Teamer talks about his offers, favorites and summer plans.

Omaha (NE) Central is known in the prep circles as I-Back High and with good reason. Central has produced the starting tailback for the University of Nebraska 10 out of the last 12 seasons.

Keith Jones, Ahman Green, DeAntae Grixby and 2002 Husker recruit David Horne have all walked the halls of Omaha Central.

Central head coach, Joe McMenamin said there won't be an I-Back from his program to sign a D-1 Letter Of Intent in 2003. That will have to wait for 2004 when Brandon Gunn will be the next highly recruited running back at Central.

McMenamin does have a couple of solid D-1 prospects and the best of the bunch may be 6-foot-5, 270-pound, offensive lineman Brandon Teamer.

"Brandon has unbelievable speed for his size," McMenamen said. "He's probably the fastest interior lineman I've ever coached.

"Nebraska and Colorado have both offered. Notre Dame should offer a scholarship soon. Brandon is about a 4.8 or 4.9 guy in the 40-yard dash.

"He wanted to go out for track and run the 100 meters and 200 meters but I told him not to get carried away."

We asked Brandon Teamer if he feels the pressure to become a Husker.

"I hear it all the time," Teamer said. "There's pressure for every Nebraska athlete to attend the University of Nebraska. I hear it when I'm at school or if just hanging out away from school.

"I'm going to take my time and make the best decision for myself. My favorites are Colorado, Nebraska and Iowa.

"Iowa is probably recruiting me the hardest. I'm also going to look at Notre Dame, Michigan and Oklahoma."

Brandon Teamer is also a member of the Central basketball squad. He'll be camping at Nebraska and Colorado this summer.
