WR Brandon Kaufman of Heritage High

Heritage wide receiver Brandon Kaufman is healed from an injury that took away his senior football season and he is ready to show recruiters that his game is still ready for the next level.

During his sophomore and junior seasons, Brandon Kaufman of Heritage High School established himself as one of the top receivers in Colorado. During that period, Kaufman gathered 97 catches for nearly 2,000 yards while averaging right at 20 yards a catch.  At 6-4 nearly 200 pounds and running in the 4.5 range, Kaufman was gaining D1 attention as he prepared for his senior season.  This summer, at the University of Colorado camp, while working out for the Buffs, Kaufman, running routes, cut back and tore up his knee, prematurely ending what would have been a very strong senior season on a talented Heritage squad.

After sitting out  post surgery and getting rehab during football season, Kaufman looks ready to once again compete.  Heritage football coach Mike Griebel says Kaufman is, “doing great.”  The time off during the football season allowed Kaufman to hit the weights hard and he is now up to a very solid 205 pounds and is once again dunking the basketball.  After the holiday break, Kaufman is cleared to play basketball for his Eagle squad.  Last season, Kaufman scored over 13 a game for an Eagle team that made playoffs.

Before his injury, Kaufman was getting looks from Pac 10, Big 12 and Mountain West schools.  Due to the injury and lack of a senior season, schools may be hesitant. Griebel, the ever loyal head coach states, “any school that doesn't go after him should have their head examined. He is drawing moderate interest and will sign with somebody, with who is hard to say.” Griebel says Kaufman will visit the University of Colorado soon.   With 6-5 size and a proven record as a playmaker, Kaufman may be a sleeper pick for the right school willing to take a chance.
