Ware Talks Interests
Brandon Ware could have a future on either side of the ball at the collegiate level and is going to attempt to take more snaps at offensive guard this season to make himself a more valuable commodity with that two-way versatility. At 6-foot-4 and weighing in around 340 pounds Ware is certainly a space eater on either side of the line. "I have changed my diet recently and have actually gotten myself down to the 340 pound area because I was up around 355 for a while there," Ware said. "I am going to continue to try and shed some weight here for the season I think. Other then that there have just been a lot of schools stopping by to see the players. I spoke to coaches from Connecticut, Temple, Tennessee, Akron, Iowa, Pittsburgh and Virginia this month and I think there were a few more as well." Connecticut - "I talk to Coach Hank Hughes and he is a really nice guy. He told me to keep my grades up and all the usual stuff coaches tell you, but also took time to ask me how I had been doing and all that which was cool. I don't know much about Connecticut, but my boy from around here Danny Lansanah starts at MIKE linebacker for them and said they've got really good facilities there now. I have seen pictures and they looked real good, so I am going to try and make it up there this summer." West Virginia - "A couple of my coaches and I went down to West Virginia to check things out on an unofficial visit and it was really nice down there. They had an indoor field and weight room that were both real nice and I spoke to the staff for a while who told me they would be keeping in touch and planned to come see me play this season." Tennessee - "Coach (Larry) Slade was in and said that he liked my film and wanted to get me down on campus for a visit. I was kind of surprised because I know they like those quick, undersized defensive tackles and that just isn't me, but if they like me then I am very interested. They put a lot of defensive tackles into the league like Turk McBride and Justin Harrell this year and Jesse Mahelona last year and I heard their stadium was huge and crazy on game days." Pittsburgh - "Pittsburgh has actually been out three times now. The first time Coach (Brian) Angelichio came in and talked to a group of us on the team and then the second time he came by he brought Coach (Dave) Wannstedt with him to talk to a few of us. The third time they came in I had a test I was taking and couldn't say hello unfortunately. I have never been out to Pitt before, but I was talking to LeSean McCoy at a party the other night and he told me that it is real nice and I should definitely take a visit out there, so I will." Iowa - "I feel bad, but I can't remember the coaches name that was out to talk to me, but I think he coached linebackers. Anyway, he was a really nice man and told me a bit about their program. I know that Iowa usually has a really good defense and just sent two linebackers to the NFL last season, so I am interested in learning more about them." As a junior at Harrisburg High School, Ware made 45 tackles, 8 sacks, a fumble recovery and deflected two passes and also started on the offensive side of the ball at tackle.
