Maryland OL Camped With Duke; Has Options

Pat Boyle traveled to nine schools this summer hoping to show his talents off to coaches around the nation and met moderate success, bagging two scholarship offers in the process and catching the eyes of many recruiters along the East Coast. This fall will be huge for the lineman as with a solid season more offers could certainly be on the way.

Pat Boyle had a busy summer, camping at Temple, Connecticut, Clemson, Maryland, Syracuse, Boston College, Duke, Wake Forest and William & Mary. Along the way the 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive lineman impressed coaches enough to pick up offers from both Temple and Towson and recruiters will be awaiting his senior film which will play a large role with other teams. The Calvert Hall College High School standout spent some time with us recently discussing his summer endeavors.

"Syracuse and Clemson camps really got rained out, so we did not get to do much or see a lot of the campuses there, so there is not much to really comment on at this point," Boyle said. "Duke was a camp that I really enjoyed because I liked the offensive line coach and his way of doing things."

Temple - "I didn't really know much about Temple going into the camp and I can tell you that I was very impressed with the coaching staff and there way of doing things right off the bat there. They worked us very hard and it was a regimented camp which is something that I really liked. The campus is like a little town within the city and was pretty nice as well."

Connecticut - "That was the last camp that we went to, so while I was very tired I was also very excited that I would have a break after it. Most of the work we did at Storrs was fundamental, but I did learn a few new things there. I was very impressed with the new facilities they have built and liked the campus because it had more of a rural feel to it."

Maryland - "That was my second year in a row camping at Maryland and it was great because it was the one camp we got to throw on the pads and hit people at. They had some great players there, so the competition was stiff and I would say that was my favorite overall camp. I have loved Maryland since I was little and really just love everything about the school and the program."

Boston College - "I have to tell you, I really liked Boston College too as they ran a very organized camp and have a quality coaching staff. Chestnut Hill is probably one of my favorite campuses and I like that while it does have a rural feel to it, the city of Boston is close by too. The facilities there were also impressive."

Boyle will spend his senior season working hard to earn himself more options at the collegiate level and has set no timeframe on a decision at this point
