The top defensive back on the Bulls recruiting board is 6-foot, 180 pound Brandon McGee from Plantation high school. Last season McGee played quarterback and threw for 934 yards, 9 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions as a junior. He also added 262 yards on the ground. As a senior McGee will play corner, the position he plans on playing in college.

"I have good footwork and speed at corner. I think playing QB has helped me on defense. I know what to expect from the quarterback, all the little things. Even when he walks out of the huddle I can pick up things like audibles and other changes and figure out where the ball is going to go before the play even starts."

Most of the time the best athletes on the team play quarterback in high school and that's the case for Brandon who was most recently offered by Illinois, bringing his offer total to 29. With so many offers, does the 4-star prospect have a favorite?

"At the moment I don't have a favorite, I'll probably narrow it down sometime over the summer. Until then I'm wide open."

He may not have a favorite, but McGee says while growing up he was always a Florida State fan.

"I've visited up there a few times, they've offered, but I'm still looking around. They are my favorite team, a lot of people expect me to commit there, but I'm going to be level-headed and make a decision that is best for me not because I'm a fan."

Although he's not naming leaning toward any one school in particular, McGee says the Bulls are in the mix.

"I like the fact that they are an up and coming program. I talk with coach Scott a lot and he tells me that the players make the program, the program doesn't make the players. They were number two in the nation last year and that really caught my eye."

McGee will visit Ohio State next weekend for their spring game and doesn't have plans yet for the summer. He has a 3.4 GPA and is working on graduating early, that's why he's not sure if he'll do much traveling this summer because he will likely be taking courses over the summer to reach his goal of graduating in January. However he says if he has a chance he'd like to take another trip to Tampa, possibly for the Bulls annual Senior Showcase Camp in July.
