Brighton narrows field, has favorite

Allen Park, Mich., defensive back and wide receiver prospect Derek Brighton has a few scholarship offers on the table, and it may not be too long till he selects a college.
"I have three offers," Brighton said. "Eastern Michigan, Ball State, and Bowling Green.
"Right now I'm pretty much looking at Bowling Green, Boston College, Eastern Michigan, and Michigan State. Then I'm going to Cincinnati on Wednesday.
"Bowling Green is probably my favorite. They're the ones looking at me as a wide receiver. The others say safety or cornerback. And I like the coaches at Bowling Green.
"I wanted to decide before the season starts, but I might wait till a couple games into it."
The 5-foot-11 and 173 pound Brighton rushed for over 1000 yards and scored 18 times during his junior season. He also intercepted three passes. However he prefers a move to wide receiver at the next level.
Brighton attended football camps at Boston College, Michigan State, and Bowling Green. He is the No. 10 prospect in the state of Michigan in the Rivals.com player rankings.
