Brandon Arrington adds Texas A&M offer, enrolls at Mount Miguel

Standout sophomore wide receiver Brandon Arrington has added six scholarship offers during the past week

When the NCAA’s contact period opened a little over a week ago, college football coaches were permitted to return to high school campuses to check in on underclassmen recruits.

Among those that have seen their recruitments skyrocket has been Mount Miguel sophomore wide receiver Brandon Arrington.

After playing his first two seasons at Helix, Arrington enrolled at Mount Miguel earlier this month, giving the Matadors another weapon, in what should be an explosive offense next season.

“I like it here,” Arrington said of his transfer to Mount Miguel. “I like the people that are around. It’s fun and I feel like you can be yourself.”

Offers from Penn State, San Diego State and San Jose State arrived for Arrington during the season with Cal, Oregon State, Sacramento State, BYU and Washington all arriving over the past week. He added his first SEC offer from Texas A&M on Tuesday morning after a conversation with Aggies co-defensive coordinator Jordan Peterson.

“It feels good to know that all my hard work is paying off. Scouts are looking at me and noticing my ability and how good I am,” Arrington said.

Paired up with AJ Logan, Parris Vernon, Delontay Williams and Braylon Cardwell, who have all added scholarship offers the past week, Mount Miguel is expected to have one of California’s best receiving units next season.

“You can’t double team all of us,” Arrington said. “It benefits us for winning games because they can’t cover us all.”

A standout on the track as well, Arrington claimed the 150-meter title and finished fourth in the 60-meter dash as a freshman at last year’s California Winter Outdoor Championships in Arcadia.

“I feel like my track times benefit me for getting these big offers because colleges love speed,” Arrington said.

Arrington caught six touchdown passes over two seasons at Helix and added a 65-yard punt return for a touchdown as a sophomore.

Mount Miguel flew through the playoffs this past season to take home the San Diego Section Division 4 title, their first CIF title since 1960. They’ll move up next season, likely to Division 2, with Arrington and others leading the attack.

“I’m excited because I feel like we can win two state championships in a row, that’s how I feel,” Arrington added.
