PASwag7v7: Recruiting Notebook

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. -- Announcements, leaders, list trimming and offer updates on more than a dozen BCS recruits, including several in the Scout 300, from the PASwag 7-on-7 at Plymouth Whitemarsh High.

There was plenty of talent at the PASwag 7-on-7 at Plymouth Whitemarsh High, where Flash Training/Eastern Christian Academy (Elkton, Md.) beat Pittsburgh 412A to win the title.

USC class of 2015 quarterback commit David Sills was the MVP of the title game, and looked good Sunday with precise throws on short and intermediate routes.

There was also a ton of recruiting news coming out of the two-day event.

  • Liberty High (Bethlehem, Pa.) Scout 300 receiver K.J. Williams admitted he nearly committed during a recent visit to Michigan, but he held off. However, the Wolverines remain on his mind.

    "Since I took that visit, they're definitely at the top of my list," Williams said. "I'm going to Syracuse next weekend, and they're probably second on my list but I'm looking at other schools."

    Williams added he doesn't plan on making a decision in the next few weeks, but does want to wrap it up by the end of the summer.

  • Coatesville (Pa.) High cornerback Daquan Worley visited Penn State on Friday and picked up an offer. Worley wasn't expecting an offer until he camped at Penn State in June, so he said he was "surprised" by the offer.

    "The top two schools right now are Penn State and Rutgers," Worley said.

  • Middletown (Del.) High Scout 300 receiver Chris Godwin visited Rutgers last weekend with teammate Andre Patton (and Rutgers signee) and was at Penn State on Friday.

    "The only other visit I have is Virginia Tech for the spring game (Saturday)," Godwin said. "The teams I talk to the most are probably Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers and Virginia Tech."

    All four have offered.

  • Erasmus Hall High (Brooklyn) running back Curtis Samuel recently picked up an offer from Miami, and he said he was interested in looking at the Hurricanes. However, there are plenty of other schools Samuel likes as well.

    The only visit Samuel took was to Rutgers, but Maryland, Vanderbilt, Nebraska and Miami are all talking to him as well.

    "I want to make other visits," he said. "I just don't have anything set up yet."

  • Gateway High (Monroeville, Pa.) Scout 300 safety Montae Nicholson is starting to look at schools harder, and he plans on narrowing his list soon.

    "Possibly it will be 12 to 15, somewhere around there," Nicholson said. "Then, I'll take some unofficial and when the season starts, I will narrow more than then take my officials and then make my choice."

  • Cedar Cliff High (Camp Hill, Pa.) quarterback Andrew Ford said Pittsburgh is coming to see him throw Thursday, and Virginia, Maryland, Penn State, Vanderbilt and Tennessee are also showing interest. He added Oklahoma State has shown increased interest, and Ford is set to unofficially visit June 7-8.

  • Lower Dauphin High (Hummelstown, Pa.) tight end Trey Klock picked up offers from Boston College and Rutgers the last two weeks, and he is planning trips to both schools in the coming weeks.

    "We're going to go to the Rutgers spring game on (April 27)," Klock said. "We're going to go to Boston College this weekend. We've also been to Duke and North Carolina State."

  • Perkiomen Valley High (Collegeville, Pa.) defensive back Rasaan Stewart holds offers from Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Temple. He recently visited Pittsburgh for a spring practice.

    "I went (to Pittsburgh) and they showed me love," Stewart said.

  • Gateway High Scout 300 receiver Ricky Rogers is watching teammates go through the recruiting process, and said he is solid and thrilled to be committed to West Virginia. He also has turned his attention to recruiting Nicholson and cornerback Anthony Davis, who has WVU in his top three.

    "I'm in their ear," Rogers said. "I tell them it's close to home (and) the atmosphere down there is incredible. That's the kind of stuff I tell them. Let's see if they listen or not."

  • Middletown (Del.) High quarterback Darius Wade committed to Boston College a few days ago, and he will enroll in January try to compete for playing time quickly for coach Steve Addazio.

    "He really felt I could come in and make a difference early," Wade said. "The fact they don't have any dual-threat quarterbacks on the roster like me, he said he feels like I'm a guy who can make an impact and take over the offense."

  • Erasmus Hall running back Kahlil Lewin holds offers from Stony Brook, Connecticut and Fordham.

    "I like UConn," he said. "They've been looking at me since I was a freshman. I feel real comfortable at UConn. It feels like home."

  • Eastern Christian Academy offensive lineman Jamie Herr said he was offered by Florida State on Friday. He also holds offers from Rutgers, Hawaii, Temple, Boston College, North Carolina State, Florida State and Syracuse.

    "I'm going out to West Virginia for the spring game," Herr said. "They'll probably offer then. They said they want to see me first. …On April 27, I'm going up to Rutgers for their spring game."

  • Central Catholic High (Pittsburgh) quarterback J.J. Cosentino showed very good arm strength throughout the two days, and he also was displaying his Florida State gear proudly. The Seminoles commit said he shut down recruiting after his recent commitment.

    "It's amazing down there," Cosentino said. "With the whole coaching staff, and with what Jimbo Fisher does with his coaching staff, it's just something you want to be a part of. If you want to be a quarterback at the next level, you want to be down there and see what he can do and see if you can flourish as a quarterback down there."

  • Sills, the USC commit, was out on campus a month ago and got to watch a few spring practices and meet with the coaching staff.

    "I liked practice out there," Sills said. "It was very competitive. I like what's going on."

  • Cardinal O'Hara High (Springfield, Pa.) receiver Thadd Smith will announce his decision Monday at 2:45 p.m. during a ceremony at his school. Smith holds offers from Temple, James Madison, Rutgers, Toledo and Boston College.

    "It was a little bit hard (to make a decision), but I sat down with my mom and my coach and we figured it out," Smith said. "I just wanted to get everybody on the same page."
