Maryland OT Is One To Watch talked with 2012 prospect Michael Boland from Georgetown Prep in North Bethesda, MD. The talented offensive tackle prospect has a big upside and that isn't going unnoticed by college coaches.

Michael Boland is blessed with size and strength. He stands 6'7"/285 and benches 340 pounds. He also has good feet and spends the winter season playing basketball which helps his conditioning and footwork. He is back focused on the sport he will play in college and it will be an important offseason for him. He is receiving interest from several schools and talks about a few he has visited already.

"I went to junior days at Rutgers and Maryland recently," said Boland. "I had a good time at each. I also went to Virginia Tech last season for a basketball game. I will be going to North Carolina, Duke and North Carolina State in two weeks as well."

Boland talks about each school.

Rutgers – I got to meet Coach Schiano. He is building a strong program there. I really like the facilities there as well. They were real nice.

Maryland – I spent time with Offensive Line Coach Tom Brattan. He has been there for a while now. I have been to several camps there over the years. It is close to home. I went to a basketball game and the atmosphere was awesome.

Virginia Tech – I went to see a basketball game last year. I just sent them some film so I hope I hear more from them soon.

Boland doesn't have an offer yet but he has been hearing from several schools.

"The schools I hear the most from are Maryland, Boston College, Penn State, Duke, North Carolina and North Carolina State."

He doesn't have his summer schedule planned out yet but will definitely be going to one school for sure.

"I definitely want to get up to Penn State this summer. I don't have the rest of my schedule set yet."

Boland talked about what will be the important factors when deciding which school he will attend.

"I need to know the coaches well. The school has to have tradition and play in a big conference. The academic success of the school is important as well."
