As December is now upon us, the mid-year junior college signing period is just over two weeks away, and things are going to continue to heat up. As is the case for Damarius Brinson of Highland Junior College (KS). He's close to making a final decision, and four programs are still standing: Colorado State, Prairie View A&M, North Texas, and Texas State.
The Bobcats originally offered Brinson over the summer and the coaching staff has been in contact as recent as last week. Corners coach Ashley Ambrose has been the lead recruiter and has told him that his size, agressiveness, and ability to play man to man, are reasons why he's got an offer on the table.
Damarius is set to be a mid-year transfer, and has already officially visited Colorado State and Prairie View A&M, and although they've yet to offer, could be taking a trip to Western Kentucky. It's all contingent on whether he gets a visit lined up with the Bobcats to come down and check out the program.
Just last week Brinson spoke with Coach Ambrose, and he let him know that they would be waiting until the end of the season to start brining guys in on visits. He makes it clear that an official to Texas State would be an option if given the chance.
"Yeah, I would like to take a visit. I just want to go to a school with a defense that fits me, and a school that I want to be at for the next two years. Good coaches and coaches that can get me to the next level," said Brinson.
Wherever he transfers to, he'll he a 2 for 2, meaning he's got exactly two years of eligibility left to play on the field. Originally, he signed with Youngstown State out of high school in St. Petersburg, Florida, but he decided for a fresh start, and went the juco route.
Brinson reports height and weight of 6'0" and 193lbs. Look for a decision over the next 2-3 weeks. Getting to San Marcos for an official will be critical as he's narrowing it down to make his choice.
