Brandon has been diligently working out this summer and is currently 230 pounds.  He is headed up to Penn State this Friday.  Thoughts abound as to which position Brandon will play for the Nittany Lions. 

"They say they want to try me at tailback, but I really don't see that happening," he laughed.  "I don't picture myself as the tailback type.  I'm a blocking fullback, what can I say?  Let's stick to what we all do best."

Linebacker is another possibility.

"I guess I'll find out when I get up there, but they've talked nothing but offense to me."

When asked if he like's offense better, Brandon responded, "Yeah, just a little.  Like I said, let's stick to what we all do best."

Brandon would like to make an immediate contribution.

"The plan was not to redshirt.  If I can get on the field, hey, I have no objections to it."

Although Brandon waited until signing day to announce his college choice, he favored the Nittany Lions throughout the entire recruiting process.

"I was rooting for Penn State the whole way during this whole recruiting thing, I just wouldn't tell anybody.  I was 90% sure I was going to end up there.  I just went to Miami to see if I could actually go to school down there, but I found out that  couldn't be true, too many distractions.  I have a teammate down there (Orien Harris) and he's doing a good job at it though."

What can Penn State fans expect from Brandon Snow?

"Hard hitting and hard work, that's all I can give."
