Branch talks OSU offer
Earlier this month the Buckeyes threw their hat in the ring for one of the most underrated defensive back prospects in the entire class of 2020.
With previous scholarship offers on the table from the likes of South Carolina, Cincinnati, Louisville and Indiana, Sandy Creek High (GA) safety Brian Branch took to his Twitter page to share with the world his opportunity to line up for the Big Ten power.

“Coach Grinch gave me the offer,” the 6-foot, 175-pound Peach State junior stated to Land-Grant Holy Land.
“He (Grinch) calls me every week and this week was different. I didn’t know he was going to pull the offer out but he said I was one of the best playmakers in the class of 2020, and they’re going to be recruiting me hard. He said he really wants me there.” Branch went onto add.
Finishing his season at Sandy Creek with over 40 total tackles, and four interceptions, Branch, who is currently unrated by recruiting outlets, could watch his name skyrocket up the recruiting rankings in the coming weeks.
Still yet to make it to the OSU campus, that could soon change, as Branch is hoping to make it up to Columbus to watch the Buckeyes battle Michigan.
“I want to see Ohio State’s defense get back to the way it used to be. I think my prediction is that Ohio State beats Michigan, 24-17,” said Branch.
