Brim receiving early interest

1062286
Lakeland (Fla.) Victory Christian Academy athlete Demeitre Brim may have landed his first offer already, but he isn't sure. He does know of a few schools that have shown a good bit of interest already.
"I am not sure who has offered, but I know some schools have been showing me interest," Brim said. "I know that my head coach asked me if I was interested in getting an offer from (Western Kentucky), but I am not sure they have officially offered me or not."
This past weekend, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect who plays both quarterback and safety for Victory Christian Academy took a trip to two in-state schools.
"I visited Florida and Miami over the weekend," Brim said. "I am going to USF on the 5th (of March)."
He talked about what he saw from the Gators and Hurricanes.
"Florida, the coaches are doing real well with everything there, and I talked with the players some and went around the school," Brim said. "I really liked it. I learned a lot of facts that they let me know about the school. Both of them (the schools) were like that. I liked both trips a lot."
Another school in the picture early on with the small-school prospect is the South Florida Bulls. He will see them in early March.
"I was getting interest from them during the football season but I haven't spoken with them recently," Brim said. "They invited me to their Junior Day (next) Saturday and I am going to see how it all goes."
As for his position at the next level, Brim has one idea but said that a majority of schools are showing him interest as a safety.
"I want to play quarterback but I play both of them so it really doesn't matter to me," Brim said. "As long as I am on the field."
The Central Florida native said that early on in the process he doesn't have a leader, but admits to one of the interested schools being a childhood favorite.
"Right now I am keep it open but I grew up a Gator fan," Brim said. "Right now though I am trying to keep every option open and available. It is going to depend on what schools offer me."
