The Inland Empire always produces plenty of big-time prospects and every spring there is a handful of players that pop up out of nowhere. One of those players that's popping up after coaches have visited his school this spring is Diamond Bar (Calif.) Diamond Bar cornerback Brandon Sermons.
The 6-foot-1, 178-pounder stars both in football and in track. He's been timed at 10.53 seconds in the 100 meters and schools from all over the area are coming after him hard.
"I have an offer from San Diego State University and Colorado," he said. "I'm expecting offers from other schools. I'm expecting offers from ASU, Oregon and Oregon State. I really don't have any favorites at this point. I'm kind of keeping my options open. Oregon State was at my school today and Oregon was at my school yesterday. My parents play a huge role because they don't want me to go very far, but I have to do what I have to do."

At this point, though, a few schools have been in the most contact and one coach has really stood out to him.
"The most active recruiting me would be Arizona State and Colorado I've really built a good relationship with coach Greg Brown from Colorado."
Sermons said he's already thought a little bit about what the perfect school will have.
"I'm looking for the school to have my major – Kinesiology," he said. "I want a good school for athletics. I think I'll take my time and do it after my senior year."
Sermons said he's going to be working hard this summer, trying to get better and hit a few camps.
"I need to get more aggressive," he said. "I mean I'm aggressive I just want to be really aggressive. I want to take everything to a college level. I don't really feel like going to camps. I would rather people see what I do on the field during the season."
"I'm thinking about going to go the USC camp maybe."
