USC is good shape with big Georgia lineman

April 7, 2014 

USC is targeting another major offensive line talent in Georgia in Brandon Sandifer (6-3 326) of Warner Robins. In fact, the Gamecocks and Alabama are in the lead for Sandifer at this point according to his coach.

“Alabama and South Carolina are the two he’s leaning towards,” coach Kevin Kinsler said. “He’s been to South Carolina twice and he’s been to Alabama a couple of times. They are the two he’s most interested in. Alabama has been on him since the 10th grade. And Ohio State wants him to visit and he has talked to them.” Sandifer’s last visit to USC was for their recent junior day.

Sandifer holds offers from USC, Alabama, Florida, Cincinnati. Ohio State and Mississippi State.

Sandifer will be a three year starter this season and has excellent skills according to his coach. “His run blocking skills are good,” Kinsler said. “He has a good punch and a good first step. He’s worked hard on keeping a low, flat back and rolling his hips. When locks on, people stick to him. And he does a good job in pass protection.”

Sandifer is also a basketball player.
