After three official visits, Houston Lamar three-star receiver Brandon LaFell still has no clear leader.
“I went to Nebraska, Missouri and Arizona on official visits, but one day I’m leaning toward one and the next day another,” LaFell said. “The stadium, fans and the atmosphere at Nebraska was really impressive, and I really bonded with the players at Missouri. I liked Arizona also because I know so many guys there. It wouldn’t be hard to have a good network of friends right away.”
LaFell caught 31 passes for 809 yards and 11 touchdowns this season, and had a Greater Houston-area-high eight interceptions. His athleticism also shines on the hardwood. He is starting back with the Lamar basketball team this week.
“Basketball is my first love,” he said. “I’d really like to try and play basketball in college. Baylor, Texas A&M and Houston have offered me in basketball.”
Kansas, Tulane, Texas A&M, Houston and Tulane have also offered the versatile athlete in football, but one school is entering LaFell’s top five, maybe. Utah is vying for an official visit from LaFell and was on Lamar’s campus to see him, and teammate Quincy Driver.
“I’d like to take a visit there, but I don’t want to go up there and their coach be leaving for a new job,” he said.
Driver would also like to hear from LSU, which was one of his earliest suitors after his junior season.
“I haven’t talked with them much lately, but I’d like to take a visits there,” he said. “They were at the top of my list in the beginning and were the first ones recruiting me. I really like their program.”
