Youngstown (Ohio) Ursuline four-star offensive tackle Brandon Braxton, all 6-foot-6 and 300 pounds of him, has lined up all five of his official visits. But the problem is that he’s not sure of when three of them are.
When you’re the nation’s No. 5 offensive tackle, you can imagine the long list of suitors. At this point, Braxton said he has more than 50 scholarship offers, but he’s reduced his list to seven teams – Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Miami, Georgia and LSU.
“I’m going to take a visit to Nebraska on December 5 and then the one to Oklahoma will be on December 12,” Braxton said. “After that, I forget what the other dates are. I know that I’m going to take three visits right in a row in December. I’m going to take official visits to Nebraska, Oklahoma, Miami, Georgia and LSU. My trips to Michigan and Ohio State are going to be unofficial visits.”
Those unofficial visits are set up for Ohio State on November 15 and Michigan for November 22.
“I’ve been to both places a bunch of times, so I don’t know if I need to take visits there,” he said. “That might end up being official visits, but right now they’re unofficial ones.”
Braxton, despite being from Big 10 country, said he’s still very open to all the teams remaining on his list.
“I’m going to see if it’s easy to get along with the people and see how it is on campus,” he said. “I want to be sure that I get along with the coaches. The main thing is that I feel comfortable with the coaches.”
Braxton has already transitioned from football to basketball. Playing power forward and center, Braxton ins one guy that people get away from when it’s time to slam it home.
“I like to go up with one hand and bring it hard,” he said. “I’ve already blistered my hand from dunking the ball.”
