OT Feder A Big Target

Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep class of 2015 offensive tackle Kevin Feder has one offer and several other suitors, and he spoke to Scout.com about his recruitment and a recent visit.

Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep class of 2015 offensive tackle Kevin Feder went to South Florida in the summer to prove he was offer worthy, and he left Miami's campus with one.

The 6-foot-9, 305-pound Feder's lone offer is from the Hurricanes, but he is also getting interest from Penn State, UCLA, Boston College and Rutgers, where he took in Saturday's game against Houston.

"Before the game I was talking to the offensive line coach (Damien Wroblewski) and the coach who used to coach at Bosco, (assistant) coach (Anthony) Campenile, and I like him," Feder said. "I was also talking to a few of the current freshmen players there, and they were telling me about how the environment is there.

"After the game, they gave us a little tour and took us to the weight room and saw the facilities there."

The Scarlet knights are yet to offer, but with three former Ironmen on the roster, it is a school Rutgers obviously recruits hard.

"The offensive line coach was talking to me, and at the end of the season I'm going to get some film out to him," Feder said. "He wants to see more film on me before he gives an offer."

Also close to home is Penn State, where Feder camped this summer and caught the eye of the offensive staff.

"They've been in contact with me a little bit, just saying keep on improving my game," Feder said. "When I was at the camp, they were mainly working on my small technique, and during 1-on-1s they were liking how I was working.

"I really like the whole entire (campus) and the locker rooms they have there and everything."

The school Feder is in the most frequent contact with is Miami. He speaks regularly with coach Al Golden, offensive line coach Art Kehoe and assistant Mark D'Onofrio.

"I have a ton of contact with them," Feder said. "I'm talking to almost all the coaches every other day. I've been talking back and forth with them, and it really started when they came to my school and they wanted me to come down to their camp, and I really performed well.

"They loved my size and the way I was playing, and they know I come from a great coaching staff here at Bosco, so they knew I could very well. They offered me at the end of the camp."

And Feder said he makes sure to take a look on television whenever the Hurricanes are on.

"I want to see how their program is doing and because they offered me," he said. "I make a little bit more of an effort to watch their games and see how they're doing."

Feder also camped at Boston College, where his team goes each summer for a few days.

"The campus is really nice there," he said. "They have a lot of new coaches this year, and it's really good for the program. The offensive line coach over there is great, too."

Feder's recruitment isn't relegated to the northeast, though. He has the Miami offer, and also is getting interest from UCLA.

He said the Bruins' interest picked up after Don Bosco played at Mission Viejo (Calif.) High last season.

"I only talked briefly to one of the coaches," said Feder, who was unsure of the coach's name. "He wished me good luck on my game, and after the end of my season he wants m to come out and visit out there. He wants me to get out to a camp there and see what I can do, so I am going to try and get out there.

"I know the history of the team is really good."
