2013 RT Brandon Bridgers (6’4, 295) of Robertsdale HS in Alabama claims verbal offers from West Alabama and Louisiana-Monroe. He hears regularly from MTSU, Troy, Arkansas, Auburn, and Minnesota.
He talked about his camp schedule this summer. “In the beginning of June I went to Louisiana-Lafayette and Monroe’s camps,” he said. “I think I stood out, handled all the one-on-one drills well. Everything that was put in front of me, I handled well. I got better as a football player and I think I stack up favorably against elite competition.”
Bridgers will be attending MTSU, Troy, and Arkansas St. camps in July.
He feels he has multiple strengths on the football field. “I’d say my footwork, reach, and strength are the best parts of my game,” he said. “I want to improve my endurance and get even stronger this offseason.”
Bench pressing 345 pounds, squatting 450, and cleaning 285, Bridgers wants to play in a competitive program and listed several other factors that will determine his college choice. “I’d prefer to stay closer to home. The school I play for doesn’t have to be in Alabama, but I don’t want to be too far away.
“Academics is just as important as football. I have a 3.0 GPA and scored 19 on the ACT.” He’s still undecided on a major.
Bridgers told Deep South Recruiting that his relationship with the coaching staff will help him make his decision. “I want coaches that I can learn from and be inspired by. I’m also seeking a family atmosphere,” he said. “Family is important to me and I want to feel comfortable in the program.”
Robertsdale’s talented lineman can play all the positions across the line except center, and he thinks his versatility will translate into early playing time. “I understand coming into a program and getting bigger, stronger, and faster. I’m willing to redshirt, learn the offense, get used to college life. I would like to start contributing sooner rather than later.”
