Brandt-Sims has some favorites
Isaiah Brandt-Sims has put up big numbers in football and track and the Wenatchee, Wash., 2014 athlete hopes it pays off in his recruitment.
SMU and Wyoming have offered so far and the 5-foot-11, 178-pound prospect said Oregon State, UCLA, Stanford and some other major schools have reached out recently as well.
"I've been talking to Stanford's recruiter since I was a freshman," Brandt-Sims said last week at the Army National Combine.
"During the season I was talking to the Oregon State offensive coordinator for a while and UCLA has been sending me a lot of mail."
Because Brandt-Sims is such an outstanding athlete, he has the ability to play all over the field. That has been the feedback he's gotten from college coaches as well and the Wenatchee standout is open to any position.
"I think Wyoming wanted me to play a slot receiver and then SMU told me I could play running back, wide receiver or defensive back," Brandt-Sims said. "Stanford said they don't really know for sure what I'd play and I haven't really asked the other coaches.
"It doesn't really matter to me as long as I get to play. That's the most important thing to me."
Another program has piqued Brandt-Sims' interest and an unofficial visit could take place in the coming months.
He said Notre Dame has always been one of his favorite schools and getting to South Bend soon is important.
"I like Notre Dame a lot," Brandt-Sims said. "I'm going down there for a trip over the summer and I'm going to see their school. Oregon State is also standing out a little bit."
In his junior season, Brandt-Sims rushed for about 1,400 yards with 23 touchdowns. He is also the 4A state champion as a freshman and sophomore in the 100- and 200-meter races.
