Phelps Updates Recruitment

Brandon Phelps

Brandon Phelps is one the top athletes on the east coast for the class of 2011. GBW caught up with the Damascus (MD) product to discuss recruitment and summer plans.

GBW:   Any new offers to report since the last time we talked?

Brandon Phelps "Alabama offered not too long ago. That is my 21st offer."

GBW:  You obviously have a lot of options to choose from.  Are you going to visit or camp at any of the schools that have offered you this summer?

Brandon Phelps:  "I'll be sitting down with my parents to talk about it once school is out.  I plan to take visits so I can my decision before the season starts."

GBW:  The last time we talked, you mentioned that you wanted to visit Michigan this summer.  Did they visit you during the evaluation period?

Brandon Phelps:  "Yeah coach Dews came by twice to see me.  He was hanging out in the coaches office.  I like coach Dews, he's real cool.  He doesn't really talk about football, we talk about general stuff."

GBW:  What position is Michigan recruiting you to play?  Do you have a position of preference?

Brandon Phelps:  "Michigan is recruiting to play corner, most of the schools that have offered are recruiting me for corner.  I can play both offense and defense, it doesn't matter."

GBW:  A lot has been made of your connection to Virginia since your father played there.  Is he pushing you to be a Cavalier?  Are they the leader for your services at this point?

Brandon Phelps:  "My dad would love it if I committed to Virginia, but he's letting me make my own decision. I'm completely open to all schools right now."

GBW:  What are going to be the most significant factors in your decision?

Brandon Phelps:  "The education, and I'd like to have a chance at getting some playing time.  Also the environment, I'd like to play in big games that have a great atmosphere." Recommended Stories
