Brandt-Sims Hoping For More

Isaiah Brandt-Sims

Wenatchee (Wash.) 2014 athlete Isaiah Brandt-Sims broke down where things stand in recruiting…

Wenatchee (Wash.) 2014 athlete Isaiah Brandt-Sims just finished his junior season. His performance on the field earned him the Big Nine Conference MVP award and a first team All-League selection.

"I am just training for track season now, my first indoor meet is on January 13th," said Brandt-Sims. "I used to do basketball but I stopped this year so I can focus on track and football."

Wenatchee missed the playoffs, but Brandt-Sims was pleased with the way his team improved over the course of the year.

"At the beginning of the season we had trouble meshing," said Brandt-Sims. "We started working hard and by the end of the year I thought that we were one if best two teams in the league. We would have made playoffs if we had won any of our early games."

The 5'11" 175lbs prospect also talked about the areas where he saw his game improve over his sophomore season.

"I think I had better vision on the field and my cutting was better," said Brandt-Sims. "I had more fun this year."

Brandt-Sims holds a scholarship offer from Wyoming and is hearing from a long list of Pac-12 programs.

"The Oregon State offensive coordinator was talking to me for a while," said Brandt-Sims. "Washington a little bit, coach Joel (Thomas). Arizona, Oregon, UCLA and California have been sending letters. Cal sends me a bunch of hand written letters."

He was also able to get out this past summer for unofficial visits to Stanford, UNLV and Washington. This summer, he plans on seeing another top program.

"I am going to go to a Notre Dame camp this summer and went to a Stanford camp last summer," said Brandt-Sims.

For now, Brandt-Sims isn't worried about recruiting. He is focused on getting better and defending his 100m and 200m state track titles.

"I am just trying to get bigger, I am between 170-175lbs right now," said Brandt-Sims. "I need to gain 10-15lbs to play running back in college. I want to keep my speed, so not just upper body weight."
