One of the most impressive athletes at the Nike Camp in Gainesville, Florida was Brandon Siler from Orlando (Fla.) Evans High School. And he fits the word athlete. Siler, 6-2 and 206 pounds, ran a 4.59 forty (Nike Camp) and last season he played tight end and linebacker. This season, he will play wide receiver, running back and linebacker. And after watching him run routes against some quality defensive backs in the one on one drills, Siler more than held his own. He flat out dominated the competition.

"That was a good time," Siler said. "I think the best think about my game is my versatility. I really don't know what position I will play at the next level. I just know I am strong and fast and this season, playing receiver and running back, I will get a lot more touches."

Siler carries a 4.2 grade point average and has already scored a 1000 on the SAT. This past basketball season he averaged 16 points and 8 rebounds per game and he is now the anchor for his high school team's 4x100. According to Siler, he has scholarship offers from USC, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Central Florida and West Virginia.

"I believe I have 8 total offers but I can't remember the rest. I just want to go somewhere big, play and compete for a National Championship. I want to take my visits and see what is out there. I need to fit in. I like Miami (childhood favorite), USC, Georgia Tech, South Carolina and Stanford."
