Junior DB Brandon Underwood

We have a recruiting update on a junior prospect for you today, DB Brandon Underwood.

We are getting into the time when we start to talk about juniors, and we're going to talk about one today who is seeing his stock rise.

One of the top defensive backs in Ohio's upcoming senior class is Hamilton's Brandon Underwood.  Underwood is the younger brother of Ohio State cornerback E.J. Underwood. He is making a name for himself and is one of the hottest prospects in the state right now.

He is bigger than E.J. was at this time, and I think he could grow into a safety, but he plays corner now, and most schools are looking for big corners, so he will at least get a shot at playing that position in college. While down in Tempe for the Fiesta Bowl, he stopped by to take an unofficial visit to Arizona State and was offered. Penn State, Ohio State, Virginia, Boston College, UCLA, Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa lead a list of potential suitors. He has been to Penn State for a game and has been to Ohio State many times.

Ohio has a very talented class of seniors coming up, and Brandon's name will be near the top of the list.
