Sesay already has boatloads of offers

There was a ton of talent on the field at Citrus College this past weekend and one player who opened some eyes was College of the Sequoias DE Brandon Sesay (6-6, 265). He's an impressive athlete with good size and speed and he's a player that knows he'll have options when it's all said and done, but he's focused on three things.

"God, Grades and Games," Sesay said shortly after posting an impressive 4.6 forty time. "Those are what are most important and they help me to keep my mind on the right things."

Sesay only played football his junior and senior seasons at Frederick Douglas High School in Atlanta, Georgia, but he was good enough to garner a ton of offers.

"I had in the 60 to 65 offer range," Sesay, who signed with Georgia, said. "I played defensive end, tight end, fullback, all the special teams and I was a kicker."

He didn't qualify out of high school, so Georgia's coaching staff helped place him at Northwest Mississippi College to get his grades in order and to work on his game, but he didn't feel comfortable there.

"I just didn't fit in very well there," Sesay admitted. "I started looking around and made a call to COS to see about coming out here and they said ‘Come on out' so I'm here now."

Sesay redshirted in 2006 while he acclimated to his new surroundings and is set for a big year.

"I'm working on getting bigger and stronger and faster," Sesay said. "Everyone says that, but I feel it every day. I just haven't played that much ball so I feel like I have a higher ceiling than everyone else."

As far as recruiting is going, Sesay's mailman is probably going to need a chiropractor with all the mail and offers he's had to deliver.

"UCLA, Washington, Washington State, Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Tennessee, basically I've gotten offers from everywhere," Sesay said. "I don't have a top five at all right now. I'm open to everyone and will check out and research anyone who offers me.

"I'm basically looking at what the school offers as far as academics and how the coaching staff is at coaching guys up and making them better. I've only got two years, so playing time will be somewhat of a factor."

Distance however, won't be.

"I talked it over with my mom," Sesay said. "She wants me to take my visits and just play my season and then decide. It's a possibility that I could move back to be near where I grew up, but that won't be that big of a deal.

"My mom doesn't care and neither do I. I just need to best place to keep playing. If that's out (west) then great. If it's in Texas that's great. It doesn't really matter to me to be honest."

Wherever Sesay ends up he'll have two years to play two. He'll graduate in December and plans to enroll in time for spring practices.
