Today we have two No. 25s just like we had two No. 26s yesterday. Let’s go to the defense first.

Brandon Shuman – So.

Miami, FL (Gulliver Prep HS)

5’11”, 170 pounds

Cornerback

2017 Projection: Contributor at Cornerback

Shuman had a modest debut as a freshman last year, giving him a chance for more playing time this year if he can nab a starting spot. He ended up playing in four different games, but only had a single tackle in terms of stats.

He does bring a decent amount of speed to the field, which helps. He was a four-year letter winner at the prestigious Gulliver Prep in Miami. He also lettered in track. He is also taking a grueling academic program by majoring in engineering. This season he could play a little more on special teams, but there is also cornerback spot up for grabs too.
