Wakefield, Mass. center Brandon Flanagan has decided on four teams he plans to take official visits to. Who is the 6-foot-2, 308-pounder looking at and why did he choose those schools?
"I've set up or am working on setting up officials with North Carolina, Duke and Buffalo in December," he said. "I don't know the exact dates for any of them yet and I'm very close to offers from both Duke and North Carolina. I chose North Carolina because it's a great football school and academically they are very good too. I also have a lot of interest in them. I love coach Hunter's technique, he's a very hands-on, in your face coach and I've grown accustomed to that. They already told me if I send senior film they will give me a full scholarship.
"I chose Buffalo because I've already been offered a scholarship from them and I believe their program is on the rise. I'm also very close with the offensive line coach there and at Duke. I also really like Duke's academics, it's the fifth best school in the country and my uncle is an avid fan of them."

The two-star lineman plans to take his other two officials to Boston College and either Wake Forest or Syracuse.
"I sent off an email about a visit to Boston College and I'm just waiting for a reply," he said. "Growing up around Boston, they are here and I grew up liking them. I also like that they are in the ACC which is a great conference. Coach Horton is the in your face type coach that I like and I've developed a really good relationship with Dana Bible. I don't have an offer from Boston College yet, but they told me to hang on for a bit longer."
Currently North Carolina is Flanagan's leader after taking an unofficial visit to the Wisconsin-North Carolina game a couple weeks back.
"The game was great and it was fun being down there," he said. "It was completely different seeing the sea of blue color everywhere. The coaching staff and players were great and they are probably my leader now. I liked that I was finally able to talk to coach Hunter in person and see how things were going with him."
The No. 15 player in New England has helped Wakefield to a 3-0 start.
