Miami (Fla.) Norland is off to a 5-0 start on their season and a big reason why is playmaker, wide receiver Brandon Snell. The 5-foot-11, 160-pounder contributes in a number of ways to the Vikings, including as a quarterback, receiver, running back, and on special teams.
"My junior year is going pretty good," Snell said. "I am having a breakout season. I have been working kind of hard and trying to help my team go to state."
As Snell racks up the yards and touchdowns on the field, colleges are taking notice. He said that he is hearing more from two in-state schools than anybody else.
"I have been getting a lot of letters," Snell said. "I have heard from Coach (Stan) Drayton at the University of Florida and Coach (Aubrey) Hill from the University of Miami the most."
Snell, who does not yet have any offers, said that growing up he has always been a fan of the hometown team.
"I am a big 'Cane fan," Snell said. "I grew up watching them all my life. To hear from them was pretty good."
As for an offer from Randy Shannon's program, he has had some conversations in regards to that subject but nothing official yet.
"Coach Hill from Miami has just asked for my highlight tape and said we would go from there," Snell said.
Two of Snell's junior teammates, running back Randy 'Duke' Johnson and linebacker Keith Brown, have already committed to Miami, but that doesn't mean it is a sure thing he makes it a trio in Coral Gables.
"It is a possibility but I am going to do what is best for me," Snell said. "I feel I fit their offense pretty good. I look like one of their kind of receivers. They look for good route runners and playmakers in their receivers."
Snell said he attended the Miami game against Florida A&M earlier this season.
