Four-star running back Brandon Minor out of Richmond (Va.) Varina has narrowed down his list to eight schools. The 6-foot-0, 213-pounder has also set up official visits to two. Who does Minor like and where will he be going?
"We've set up an official for him at Miami and Michigan, but I can't remember the dates," said Varina coach Blanda Wolfe. "Right now, he's narrowed his list down to those schools and Florida, LSU, Ohio State, Tennessee, North Carolina State and Virginia Tech. He's still trying to narrow down his top five."
Any reason Minor chose those schools?
"He wants to get a good education and be able to play for a national championship and bowl games,' he said. "A lot of the schools that he chose fit him offensively and would allow him to get on the field."
On September 4th, Minor will be attending the North Carolina State game for an unofficial visit when they host Virginia Tech.
"He's got former teammates on both teams," he said. "He went up to Virginia Tech right around August 5th and saw the players and met up with Macho Harris and talked a lot to him. He said he really liked the visit there and the opportunity to see and be around the players. At first he was always saying how he wanted to go out-of-state and I think they've gotten into his top five because he really loves their offense since they give the ball to the tailback. He's still keeping everything pretty wide open though."
Minor is hoping to narrow his list in the next month or so. The Rivals250 back still plans to decide on or near Signing Day.
The No. 1 fullback in the country is currently preparing for his first game of the season against Garfield next Friday night.
"Brandon's been doing really well and has been an excellent leader so far this year," Wolfe said. "We played in a scrimmage last week and he carried the ball three times for I think 102 yards. His first play from scrimmage was for 65 yards and a touchdown. As for the team, we're young and have a tough schedule. I think if we get through our first game we'll be ok."
Minor ran for 2,091 yards and 30 touchdowns as a junior. The No. 6 prospect in Virginia was named all-district, all-region and second team all-state.
