Brandon’s one of my (Bill’s) favorites in this class. His legs never stop churning. From his original commitment post:
Two things are certain: a) he occupies a lot of space, and b) he operates well within tight spaces. His combination of girth and quickness helped him to win conference player of the year this season.
Mizzou desperately needed help at defensive tackle and might have to move players around just to have enough DTs in spring practice with Terry Beckner Jr. and Markell Utsey recuperating from respective knee surgeries. Brandon won’t help in spring, but he could provide a major boost in fall camp.
