Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby High School junior offensive tackle Brendan Loftus holds six scholarships offers heading into the off-season. The 6-foot-6 and 275-pound underclassman has also begun to hear from a pair of in-state schools and one SEC conference team.

Loftus has offers from Auburn, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Kentucky, TCU and UCLA. The rising senior has also been hearing from South Florida, Florida State and Vanderbilt. He also recently attended the Auburn-Alabama game and was very happy to have an offer from the Tigers.

"It feels good," said Loftus of the Auburn offer. "I have been talking to them of late. I think Coach Grimes (Auburn offensive line coach J.B. Grimes) is supposed to come through here (Godby) soon. Having an offer from a team like that feels good. They are playing in the National Championship game after being picked in the pre-season polls to finish in the bottom half of the SEC."

The big lineman also feels his style of play matches what Auburn ask of their offensive linemen.

"They run the ball a lot and of course I enjoy run blocking. I like coming off the ball as hard as I can and hitting somebody and that is what they love to do at Auburn," said Loftus.

This past summer Loftus visited UCLA on an unofficial visit and has been trying to keep up with the Bruins this season.

"I like (UCLA Offensive Line) Coach Klemm a lot. When I visited UCLA I got a chance to talk to him. He talked about their freshmen and how good they were and I got to see that this season. They run behind those two freshman lineman a lot," said Loftus of keeping up with Bruins and their offensive line situation.

Loftus has also been hearing from three schools he doesn't have offers yet.

"I have been getting a lot of letters from Florida State, South Florida and Vanderbilt. USF has sent some hand-written letters," said the underclassman.
