Brandon Sebastian Returns to Syracuse for Spring Game

One of the top players in Connecticut, Brandon Sebastian, took his second visit to Syracuse in recent weeks. This time, he was there to check out the spring game and hang out with the coaches.

Three-star prospect Brandon Sebastian is listed as a wide receiver prospect in Scout's database. One of the schools on him the hardest is Syracuse, who likes him as a defensive back. Sebastian visited Syracuse in February and loved his time on campus. 

Over this past weekend, he returned to the campus to see the spring game and more. 

"The visit was more personal with the coaching staff," he said. "I liked the spring game. Since it was an overnight, we watched the UNC vs Syracuse game."

Sebastian was able to further bond with the Syracuse coaches during this trip, something he started on the last visit. The staff continues to tell the Cheshire Academy standout that he is a big priority. 

"We talked about how I can come in and play as a freshman, which I liked," Sebastian said. "I love how the coaches took the approach to talk about my recruiting. The coaches were so cool because we ate pizza and played Madden with them."

Assistant coach Mike Hart played Madden against C.J. Holmes in a rematch of the previous visit. Sebastian said coach Hart won again. 

During the spring game, Sebastian was watching the cornerbacks. While he was impressed by what he saw, he did see room for his skill set to make an immediate impact. 

"I notice they are very small in length," he said. "Now college teams want tall DBs to cover tall wide receivers. I love how they played with intensity."

Sebastian claims no favorites, but says Syracuse is "high" on his list. He plans to visit again soon, he said. 

The 6-foot-1 athlete is visiting Boston College on April 9th and Wisconsin on the 16th.
