Spikes Holds Six Early Offers

Being a four-year starter for a perennial powerhouse like Shelby (N.C.) Crest will definitely open-up some eyes as Brandon Spikes has realized the last few months.

"I have offers from V-Tech, Virginia, [North] Carolina, Wake Forest, South Carolina, and N.C. State," stated Brandon Spikes. "And I'm getting a lot of letters from Tennessee, Clemson, USC, Notre Dame, Michigan, Penn State, Oregon, there's a lot more I just can't remember all of them."

As you can see, Spikes is receiving some level of interest from basically every division I-A program, with the exception of one noticeable absentee.

"I like the ACC conference and the SEC conference," remarked Spikes. "I really like Miami, but they haven't really sent me anything, yet.

"Out of my offers, I like Virginia, V-Tech, and Carolina. I want to come into a winning program and V-Tech won the conference this year; Carolina, their doing pretty good; and Virginia, I like them a lot."

Don't expect Spikes to be among the early verbal commitments, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound jumbo athlete figures to wait until Signing Day to announce his future school.

While helping Crest repeat as NCHSAA 3A State Champion last season, Spikes recorded 98 tackles including three sacks, seven interceptions and forced five fumbles from his linebacker position despite missing three games with an injury.
