Godfrey goes with Green Wave

Brandon Godfrey

Tulane took its fourth commitment in the '13 recruiting class today when John Curtis Christian offensive lineman Brandon Godfrey pledged his services to the Green Wave. Read further for details.

Tulane added a pledge this afternoon from Brandon Godfrey, a 6-4, 280-pound offensive lineman from local program John Curtis Christian in River Ridge.

Although Godfrey didn't go public with his intentions until today, his mind had been made up for a couple of months.

"I'm very excited," said Godfrey, who has logged time at both offensive tackle and center for Curtis. "I've been wanting to commit since Tulane's spring game on March 24th.

"I really have been committed to myself since the spring game. Last night I talked it over with my parents, and let them know I wanted to go to Tulane today and commit."

What happened when Godfrey and his family visited the Tulane campus?

"I was talking to the offensive line coach and my area recruiter (Coach Lamb) and Coach C.J. (head coach Curtis Johnson) walked in," said Godfrey.

"Coach C.J. told me he was offering me a $55,000 education with this scholarship. He said he was offering me again, and that this was the third time he had offered. He said he really wants me, and then it looked like he was getting up to go into a meeting. I told him I was taking him up on his offer; that I was committing, and all the coaches got excited."

What else did Godfrey say?

"I feel great," he exclaimed. "My parents and my brother (Jerry Godfrey, who played at Tulane and coaches at John Curtis) told me before I committed to make sure Tulane is where I want to go.

"It's a dream (come true). I've been around Tulane since I was six months old and here we are 18 years later. My dad told C.J. that he is glad to be back."

Now that Godfrey (pictured below, left, with teammate Anthony Taylor) is in the fold, he has his first assignment from Coach Johnson.

"C.J. said, 'You're one of us now. We need you to help us get the other two,'" recounted Godfrey, who was referring to teammates Sherman Badie (RB) and Duke Riley (LB).

"I have talked with Sherman and Duke about playing together in college at Tulane, but not to this extent because I didn't want anyone to know I was committing until today. I would love to play with them in college."

John Curtis went 14-0 in 2011 and won the Class 2A state championship.

All four of Tulane's pledges hail from the metro New Orleans area.
