The word must of gotten out about four-star cornerback Brandon Sermons (6-1, 183, 4.42) from Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch cover ability because Pasadena (Calif.) Muir only threw one pass his way on Friday Night and that was an incomplete.
The talented corner had about as much to do as the Maytag repair man, but still he accounted for five tackles and had one fumble recovery in a losing cause 16-6.
"My night went pretty good, but the loss kind put a damper on it," Sermons said. "We had too many penalties and when we would turn the ball over, they did a good job capitalizing."
The phone has been busy at the Sermons household since September 1st, Sermons has received calls from the likes of Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Colorado, Utah and Fresno State.
UCLA was in the audience on Friday Night.
At this moment, Sermons has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA, Washington, Washington State, Colorado, Colorado State, San Diego State, Utah and Idaho.
"I know I have to narrow things down soon, but haven't as of yet," Sermons said. "There are some schools that are stepping out. Those schools are Colorado, Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA, also Oregon and Oregon State."
What is Sermons looking for in a college?
"I am looking for a school that is strong in my major," Sermons said. "I'm going to major in kinesiology, which is helpful for occupational therapy.
"I also want to play early so the depth chart will be something that I will look at," Sermons said. "I don't really know when I will make my decision, because at the present time I am concentrating on my senior season.
"I haven't set any visits, yet," Sermons said. I will visit Colorado, Arizona, and Arizona State and maybe one out of Oregon and Oregon State.
"I don't think I'll take an official visit to UCLA because they are right in my back yard," Sermons said. "I'll be able to visit UCLA at anytime I want."
