Known as "B.U." amongst his teammates, Brandon Underwood recorded 50 tackles, 15 pass breakups, 3 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles last season. At 6'1", 175 pounds, Brandon runs a speedy 4.4 forty. He is a hard-hitting cornerback with good size and is an aggressive player who will be returning kickoffs this upcoming season because he has such good field vision.
Brandon has already displayed his talents at the Tennessee and Indiana camps this summer, and he is going to camp at Ohio State, Notre Dame, Iowa, and Michigan. He has already received offers from Indiana, Penn State, Arizona State, Maryland, and Cincinnati to name a few. However, Brandon said he is going to wait until the end of the season to decide where he is going to go.
Brandon had 2 interceptions in one game last season and was named player of the game. However, he says he laughs at himself after watching the film of that game. "After my second interception, I cut back instead of hitting the open hole. I thought it was going to close up so I made a ridiculous cut. I laughed at myself after watching that on film."
In the off-season, Brandon has been improving his hips and his footwork. He says he has been doing a lot of tone drills and conditioning to keep his speed up too.
Brandon plans on majoring in Computer Science in college. "I love computers. They can do almost anything," he says. He is a long time Charles Woodson fan and cheers for the Steelers on Sundays.
If his past performance on the field is any indication, football fans can expect a big season from Brandon Underwood. He is one on the top prospects in Ohio, and has what it takes to be a legitimate Division I football player.
