Poggi: I play basketball so I was busy with the season until just recently. I have been working out hard getting ready for next season.
Scout.com: Are you doing any camps or combines this spring/summer?
Poggi: I don't think so. I have some offers and I want to go to some of those schools that have offered me instead.
Scout.com: What schools have offered you so far?
Scout.com: Which schools are you planning to go to?
Poggi: I am going to Iowa for some spring practices and to Penn State for their spring game.
Scout.com: What do you like about each school that has offered you?
Iowa – Coach Ferentz is a great coach. The team plays hard for him. They seem like a good group of guys working hard and having fun. They enjoy playing football.
Penn State – Tradition. Joe Paterno. It's linebacker U. They just have a great team.
Virginia – Always liked them. We had a friend that worked there and I always liked the team. I just like their whole set up.
Ohio State – Our coach Stan White played there. I went there a couple years ago for the Penn State game. I got to meet Coach (Jim) Tressel and the whole trip was a good experience. Since then I have followed them even closer. They have a huge stadium and everyone loves the football there.
Boston College – Another of our coaches, Coach (Keith) Kormanik played there. It's a great area. A great conference. I really like the way they play as well. They play tough football.
Scout.com: Did you have a favorite team growing up?
Poggi: I grew up liking Penn State and Ohio State. Those two stood out the most.
Scout.com: Are there other schools you hope to get an offer from?
Poggi: Well actually my father just told me that an Auburn offer is on the way. That would be great. Good team and a nice southern school. Texas may be deciding soon about me as well. I would love an offer from them too.
Scout.com: What are the factors important to you when looking at a school?
Poggi: The team play. Their attitude on the field. I want a team that is a family off the field. A team that loves to be together. That is how my high school is and we have been very successful that way for a number of years. I want the same thing in college.
Poggi reports an 85 average and will be taking the SAT soon.
