"Texas just called me and said they are evaluating my film now and may want me to travel down there for their spring practice," Lauro explained. "Some of the coaching staff has already signed off on it, but the rest have to see it too. They are definitely a great program and I'd love to visit down there."
"Pittsburgh is definitely my No. 1 choice because my father Phil played offensive guard when Tony Dorsett was there and my uncle Mike was a linebacker on the same team," Lauro said. "I have been to a ton of Pitt games and think it's awesome that they play at an NFL stadium in Heinz Field. Another cool thing about Pittsburgh as a city is that there aren't many professional sports teams, so Pitt football is a big deal to those people. There is a ton of history there which is awesome and I can't wait to get down for camp this summer."
"Penn State is another program sending me mail, but not as much as some other schools," Lauro stated. "A funny fact is that Joe Paterno is actually my third cousin as he's my grandmother's cousin. I need to send them some film as I haven't done so yet and I like them because they have a ton of tradition there."
Iowa, Connecticut, Boston College, Maryland, Duke and North Carolina have also been in contact with the Avon, Conn., product.
