"Financially, it was better for me and my family and it's also a opportunity for me to go against some great competition and put myself up against some of the best wideouts which I believe they have in this conference," Brinson told when asked about why he made the move from Contra Costa to Highland.

As a redshirt freshman last season, Brinson started four games while working his way into the Comets' talented secondary, finishing with 14 tackles, two tackles-for-loss, an interception and a team-leading nine pass breakups.

"I can play man-to-man press all game as well as off-man. That is definitely one of my top strengths - I shadow the best receiver all game," Brinson noted. "I don't just stay on one side of the field, which I feel separates me from a lot of other corners, my coaches give me the challenge and I want that challenge."

This offseason, Brinson hasn't focused on one area of his game. He's working to perfect everything.

"It doesn't matter if I think it needs work or not, I'm working on things every day," Brinson said. "Every offseason I try to perfect my game as a whole."

On the recruiting front, Brinson still has the two offers he received earlier this summer, from Colorado State and Texas State and he's been hearing from several other schools as well.

"I've been talking a lot with Colorado, Utah State, Middle Tennessee and Buffalo lately," Brinson noted. "My coaches expect my recruiting to take a huge jump when coaches get to see me perform against some of the top talent they have here and I am doing everything I can to be ready for the challenge."

Brinson enjoyed a solid prep career at Boca Ciega High School in St.Petersburg/Gulfport, Florida and he signed with Youngstown State where he enrolled the following summer, but he wasn't happy there, so he left after redshirting in 2013.

Brinson will finish up his two-year degree this December and he will have two years to play two following the 2015 football season.
