Brandon Reddish, Fort Hamilton’s dynamic wide receiver/safety, is so tough in the open field because of his patience, his ability to wait until the final second to let his speed take over. He’s treating the recruiting process the same way.

“It’s about where I’m most comfortable at,” he said. “I’ve thought about it, but I have no answer yet. I like [all the schools] the same.”

The 5-foot-11 Reddish, who was recently named our All-City football Player of the Year, recently took official visits to Syracuse and Connecticut, but he doesn’t play on making a commitment until National Signing Day on Feb. 3. He hopes to take all five of his official visits before then and wants to see Penn State and Maryland. He has yet to decide on what school would be No. 5 — West Virginia, Virginia, Boston College and Rutgers are in the mix, too.

Reddish enjoyed his two visits, spendinga lot of time with the two coaching staffs andplayers. When he was in Storrs, Conn., he was with Boys & Girls standout Wilbert Lee, a Huskies commit. At Syracuse, he was joined by national prospect Ishaq Williams of Lincoln. Under coach Doug Marrone, the Orange have gone after the city hard; the roster currently includes four city standouts – Michael Hay (Holy Cross), Steven Rene (Canarsie), Jason Bromley (Flushing) and Mario Tull (Xaverian) – and they already have one commitment from the city in Christ the King quarterback Terrel Hunt.

Reddish enjoyed a memorable career at Fort Hamilton. A three-year starter, he led the Tigers went a remarkable 36-2, reaching at least the semifinals each season. Reddish also scored 18 touchdowns in 11 postseason appearances and helped the Brooklyn school to its third title in six years.
