Where Does Brandon Bullock Stand?

Brandon Bullock [6-foot-3 and 305-pounds] has seen his recruitment pick up in recent weeks. Holding a trio of early offers, has anybody stepped up with additional interest? Moreover, where does Bullock stand in regards to his recruitment?

Brandon Bullock, by way of Absegami HS in Absecon, NJ [located just outside of Atlantic City] picked up a trio of early offers from New Mexico State, Rutgers, and Syracuse. While Bullock continues to keep in contact with the aforementioned schools, an additional Big East school has also stepped forth with an offer.

"Cincinnati also offered a couple of weeks ago," stated Bullock.

That brings Bullock's offer list to four. However, a number of Big 10 and ACC schools continue to recruit the south Jersey standout, including Virginia, North Carolina State, Minnesota, and Purdue.

Bullock was on hand for the Greg Schiano 7-on-7 shootout this past June but due to transportation issues was unable to make it to the Rutgers camp. Despite this, Bullock remains very interested in Rutgers and has them high on his list.

"They're [Rutgers] at the top of my list because I really feel at home there. A lot of kids are looking toward Rutgers, and not necessarily because of football, but because of the academics and because it's such a good all-around school. Football-wise though, Rutgers is on the map. They are in the Big East conference, they continue to get better, they got to a Bowl Game last year. These are some of the reasons why I like Rutgers, because there's a future there," said Bullock.

Besides listing Rutgers at the top of his list, Bullock also had very positive things to say about one of the Scarlet Knights Big East brethren: Syracuse.

"The coach from Syracuse, Tim Cross, I really like him also. He seems like he can really motivate you and he seems like someone to look up to."

Bullock continues to train hard during the off-season, but on this particular day had a rather interesting event planned out.

"We have a clinic where we go and we have younger kids that come in and we try to teach them about football and we practice with them," stated Bullock.

Having the opportunity to work with and coach prospective youth players from the second through fifth grade (this past Wednesday) and sixth grade through High School (this past Thursday) is indeed a rewarding experience whereby Bullock can give back to his community.
