The football season is fast approaching and Canton (Ohio) GlenOak linebacker Brandon Long says he and his teammates are ready to go.
"Saturday is our first game," Long said. "It's going great so far. We wrapped up two-a-days with a scrimage against Cleveland St. Ignatius and Akron Garfield. We did pretty well."
Long has had a busy summer.
"I went to Ohio State's camp," Long said. "And I went to the NIKE Camp at Ohio State. I also went to a few other camps like Bowling Green and Cicinnati."
"I'm looking at all the schools that have offered me, Cincinnati, Akron, Bowling Green, Kent State, Iowa, and Michigan State. I'd say Michigan State, Iowa, and Cincinnati are the top three of those."
"I'm looking at Ohio State of course. They've talked about offering, but they haven't yet. They want to see some game film."
"The ones I'm most serious about are Michigan State, Ohio State, Iowa, and Cincinnati. Ohio State and probably Michigan State are my favorites, but it's a tough call."
"I think I'll wait and take official visits. I want to make sure I make the right decision. I plan on visiting Iowa, Michigan State, and Cincinnati right now, but I haven't scheduled anything yet."
"I just opened my mail today and got tickets to the Ohio State-Cincinnati game. I'll probably go. Ohio State is recruiting me as a fullback or tight end. All the schools say a different position."
The 6-foot-2 and 220 pound Long made 32 solo tackles and had 36 assists during his junior season. Long has played inside linebacker, defensive end, and tight end for GlenOak.
