Rivals.com and Yahoo Sports have reported that the 5A Defensive Player of the Year from Coppell (Texas) High, Brandon Mullins, has turned down Division 1 football offers to play lacrosse at Syracuse.

Rivals.com states:

According to the Dallas Morning News, Mullins has stuck to his original decision that he will play lacrosse — and only lacrosse — when he attends Syracuse next fall. That comes despite the linebacker’s outstanding senior season that earned him one of the state’s most prestigious honors: the Associated Press Class 5A Defensive Player of the Year award.
