Duke In Early Top Three For Jersey Backer

Alexander DiSanzo his first written scholarship offer two weeks ago and some new schools have joined the fray for his services. With camp season just around the corner, DiSanzo could see more offers come his way over the next few months.

Alexander DiSanzo, a 6-foot-3, 221-pound linebacker from Don Bosco Prep School in Ramsey, N.J., picked up his first scholarship offer from the Cincinnati Bearcats and now has a few schools like Duke, Boston College and Colorado vying for his interest. DiSanzo will camp at Boston College in the month of June and hopefully will leave Chestnut Hill with another offer.

"Cincinnati offered me a few weeks ago," DiSanzo stated. "I haven't really spoken with the staff much since they offered however they spoke to Coach Toal about it and he spoke with my parents to keep them up to date. I got the chance to speak with Coach (Charley) Molnar a bit and have texted with him, but I don't know much about the program to tell you the truth. I did get to see the facilities when we played out there last year for the Herbstreit Challenge and thought they were nice."

"Colorado is another school that has just recently come into the picture," DiSanzo added. "Their head coach Dan Hawkins and Coach (Kent) Riddle flew out to New Jersey and made a stop by our school to talk to me a bit. He just told me about his coaching background and what not. Just your basic football discussion, but he came off as a really cool guy. He's definitely my kind of coach and I'm learning more about them now as I research."

"I'll be going for camp at Boston College in June and just talked to Coach (Bill) McGovern about my situation with them, so I am hoping that they will offer me at camp, but I don't know what is going to happen," DiSanzo explained. "Coach (John) Strollo has been in contact with me from Duke too recently and I actually grew up a huge fan of Duke as a kid in every sport, so on top of their great academics that is a huge draw. I don't know where I stand with them as this just started, but I do like them."

As a junior, DiSanzo recorded 45 tackles and three interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. On offense, he caught 25 passes for 500 yards and
