Hello: Brandon Brown (who is not a recruit)

Good news, everyone! We have expanded our team by one around here by adding Brandon Brown, late of The M Block, as a recruiting reporter. He is pictured at left above.

We found it hard to have Ace be both the recruiting analyst and the reporter at the same time since those roles often conflict, and now that he's moved into basketball pretty heavily we had a gap in our coverage. Brandon will fill that by talking to recruits.

Credentials time: Brandon started doing this himself after an offer to write for another burgeoning site went under when the primary author shut the thing down suddenly. In a relatively short time Brandon established himself as a guy on top of things, correctly identifying the mystery quarterback recruit out of Virginia who would soon become Wilton Speight, commit and George Campbell closer. He also pegged the direction the Drake Harris and Chase Winovich recruitments were going seemingly before anyone else. In a relatively brief period of time he's established himself as a guy who gets things.

He'll be posting two to three things a week, mostly interviews. A Central Michigan grad, Brandon's day job is teaching middle school science in South Carolina; he also coached that level of football. He'll have something coming up in the next couple hours that's rather cool.

Welcome Brandon!

No slight to anyone but always felt that trying to merge Tim and Tom's old roles was never going to fit. Too hard to do what Tom would do while being a beat-type reporter.

Nice to see an added recruiting presence on the blog.

I don't know... He looks shiny, red and shaped like a flower. That guy on the right looks pretty cool though.

Welcome, Mr. Brown

I won't respect him or his opinion until he has as many points as I do because those things matter!

Welcome, and good luck, we're all a bunch of monsters.

was Brandon properly vetted?  What was his middle school football won - loss record?  When will he release his high school transcripts?  We are going to be living our pathetic lives through you now - we need to make sure you are legit!

 

Welcome aboard

I mean, they just show up on MGoBlog which is fine but that just means an even higher percentage of my e-time is going to be sent here on the blog. MVictors and UMHoops are next I suppose

Coach, long time follower of yours at the M Block and prior at benji's blog. You picked up where Benji left and took it to another level. You will be a great addition here.

What's his fake WPM speed?  Did AGoBlog in Alabama offer him?  How many spots does this move us up in the Scout university blogging class of 2013?  Does Brian plan to use him as a 5 technique writer or a 3 technique? Details people...details.

When I read comments by and about "Coach Brown" I always pictured somebody who was a mix of Cass Tech's Coach Wilcher and Laurence Fishburne.

Glad to see I was basically correct.
