Penn State Covets Delaware Fullback

Brandon Snow knows he can take his time deciding which college to attend. The 6'1 ½", 220 pound FB/LB is one of those special players that can make college coaches wait for him to feel comfortable with his decision.

Brandon is from Newark High School in Delaware and is considered by some to be the number one FB prospect in the country. He has started at FB on offense and DE/LB on defense for the past two seasons. He successfully made the switch from DE to LB last year in the middle of the season.

Most schools, however, are most impressed by his play at the FB position and are awestruck by his ability to pancake opposing defenders with devastating blocks. Although he doesn't get the opportunity very often, Brandon is a very talented runner as well and has been measured at 4.53 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Last time I spoke with Brandon, he had about 16 offers.

"You can practically double that," said Brandon. "I have about 25 to 30 offers now."

Some of the schools that have offered Brandon include Miami, Florida, FSU, Virginia, PSU, MSU, Wisconsin, Maryland, Rutgers, Wake Forest, NC, NC State, Syracuse, WV, Pitt, ND, VT, Arizona State and several others.

Brandon maintains that he does not have a current list of favorites at this time. There was at least one source that reported a list of favorites attributed to him, but he said that was not the case.

"That guy got that interview wrong. He asked me who offered me and I started with the Florida schools. Later, I found out that he said I favored them for some reason. I told him they were in no particular order. I really don't have any favorites right now. It's wide open. It really is."

According to Snow, PSU and Virginia are recruiting him the hardest and are both recruiting him primarily as a FB.

Brandon is being recruited by Coach Fran Ganter and was at PSU for a Junior Day in February where he attended a PSU-Indiana basketball game.

Brandon says he will be going to the 9/1 PSU-Miami game with his head coach Butch Simpson and teammates Erec Spiese (QB) and Steve Selk (TE/DE). Brandon's former teammate, Orien Harris, will be playing for the University of Miami. Snow refers to Orien as "Big-O" and says Harris is trying to recruit him.

He is not planning on making a decision until after he takes his official visits.

"In about a month or two, I'll know which schools I will be taking official visits to," said Brandon. "As far as making a decision, we're talking February, most likely signing day."
