Cascarano Is a Cavalier

Glenbrook South (Glenview, IL) offensive tackle Sean Cascarano has seen his recruitment pick up steam as the process went along. A host of schools jumped on his bandwagon and when the dust cleared, he sat with seven offers, but it was one school who topped the list and stayed there.

Sean Cascarano is a Cavalier. The 6'5, 260-lb Glenbrook South offensive tackle ended his recruitment yesterday, committing to Virginia, following a recent visit to Charlottesville.

"I knew going into the trip that Virginia was my #1 school," he said, "it was the place for me and didn't want to draw out the process any longer than it had to be for a number of reasons."

Sean and his mother got to campus Friday afternoon and did not leave until midday on Sunday, allowing them both to have plenty of time to see the area, the campus and establish relationships.

"We got in on Friday and we took a tour of the campus, walked around a little bit and on Saturday, we met with the coaches for junior day function and I hung out with three other players."

Afterwards, Sean went home with an even stronger feeling about the Cavaliers. However, his father, who was unable to take the trip was back in Illinois, waiting to be briefed on the visit and together, the Cascarano's decided on what would be best for Sean.

"We came home and Sean talked to my husband and I together," his mother Tracy Cascarano said, "we said, we've been to a lot of schools who haven't offered you, what if they came through? And he said, I want to go to Virginia."

When asked what I liked about the school, Sean said, "I'd say it was the best combination of academics, athletics, and my level of comfort there. It was the right place for me."

His mother agreed, saying, "I loved it too, I had hoped in a way that he would play some schools out to evaluate every school in the same way but he had conviction, he knew what he wanted and he found it and wanted to commit."

Although he has offers from other programs like Michigan State, Indiana and others, Sean says he is completely done with process and there will be no more camps, visits or anything else except looking forward to suiting up for Al Groh and the Cavaliers.

"On Sunday night I talked to Coach Borbely, he was very excite and glad to have me on the team next year and glad for me to a part of the Virginia family. Monday morning, I talked to Coach Groh and he was also very excited. It feels great, they have a great program and their school and academics meet my needs, great fit for me and my family."
