Nearly a week after his trip to Michigan, offensive lineman Brandon Braxton is still keeping his options open. And with offers from almost every major program in the country, he has a lot of schools to choose from.
"The trip to Michigan was great," said Braxton, who saw Michigan destroy Notre Dame. "The stadium, the atmosphere and fans, and the performance by Michigan were all incredible. I'm definitely more interested in them now, after experiencing that. But I'm also not ready to make my decision just yet. There are a lot of other top programs that I want to see, or hear more from."
The 6-foot-6, 300-pounder from Youngstown (Ohio) Ursuline runs the 40-yard dash in 5.1 seconds is ranked the No. 51 player in the entire nation by Rivals.com. What will be some of the factors in his decision?
"With the offers I have, I have the ability to go to a prestigious school and football program. So how successful a team is on the field is going to be important. I would also like to go to a school that puts an emphasis on running the ball. Michigan did a great job of that from what I saw. I just love that style of football."
Schools like Ohio State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Georgia, LSU and many other top programs have offered and are in the mix.
"After I visit a few more schools and look harder at all of them I should be ready to narrow things down. Then after a while I'll make my decision. I don't have a timeframe or anything like that. When I feel like it's the right time, I'll commit."
