Brandon Linder plays on the best high school football team in America, that’s a fact. His St. Thomas Aquinas squad won the National Championship last season, and Linder was a big part in that. During the summer however, Linder has focused on recruiting, and has recently narrowed things down. What lucky four schools made his list? Get inside to find out.

Linder’s Aquinas’ squad, as mentioned before, won the National Championship last year, but he and his teammates are staying focused and want to repeat the success they had on the field a season ago.

“We won the national championship (last season),” Linder said. “We’re doing good, we should win at least another state championship again.”

“It’s really cool you know, just to play with those guys and they have your back and everything.”

On the recruiting front, Linder has been a hot commodity, as a top shelf offensive linemen, like himself, are a rare breed these days, and many of the top programs in the country have made the heralded player a top priority.

“About 28,” Linder said, guessing on how many offers he had. “I have a top four of Miami, Florida, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.”

“They’re all the same thing, there’s great education, great coaches, and just somewhere where I could feel like I could fit in.”

Linder has taken a couple of unofficial visits this summer- to Florida and Miami- and has a plan as to where he is going to take his official visits.

“Yeah I was just at Miami the other day and I was at Florida a couple weeks ago.” he said. “They were both good visits and I just enjoyed hanging out with the coaches and getting to know each other.”

“Yeah, I will definitely take official visits to all of my top four.”

Though Linder doesn’t know when his much anticipated decision will come, he has a good idea as to what he’s looking for in his ideal college.

“I don’t know when I’m going to make a decision, just when I know it’s right.” Linder offered. “I’m just looking for great academics, coaches, and somewhere where I could fit in.”

Linder currently ranks as #39 in ThaRinger.com’s Top 300 for the Class of 2010, and the #17 player in the state of Florida.
