Personal Life

Zachariah Branch’s brother, Zion, is one of the most decorated defensive backs in the 2022 recruiting cycle. Zachariah Branch led Bishop Gorman to the Nevada Class 5A Southern Region track championship as a sophomore by winning the 100- and 200-meter dashes with times of 10.43 and 21.14 seconds, respectively, and the long jump with a personal best of 24 feet. Branch could have made it four-for-four but opted not to compete in the triple jump to focus elsewhere. His best leap of 46-4¼ on April 30, 2021, was the state’s best of the season. Branch’s parents are Sheva and Renee Branch. Both went to school at San Jose State. Branch plans on majoring in dermatology in college. His hobbies include spending time with family and friends, reading and playing chess.

2021 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 6
The comparison between Zachariah Branch and Jaylen Waddle is uncanny and one that is shared among college coaches. Branch’s ability to change direction and quickly gear down, cut and burst in rapid succession remind us of Waddle. They're both dangerous deep threats who have the ability to come down acrobatic catches despite being around 5-foot-10, 175 pounds. Waddle posted strong track times, but Branch has the edge in that regard, running a 10.33 second 100-meter dash and posting a long jump over 24 feet as a sophomore.
