Hart is Turning Heads While on the Move

The future is looking bright for the 6-foot-5 and 270-pound offensive lineman. He has received offers from Maryland, Vanderbilt, Duke, Wake Forest and FSU.

The future is looking bright for 2011 offensive lineman prospect Bobby Hart. At 6'5 and 270 lbs, he is gaining interest from many top programs. He says he has received offers from, “Maryland, Vanderbilt, Duke, Wake Forest, and Florida State, but I am hearing from almost everybody,” he also added, “ I am open to anything. I am interested in any school that shows interest in me.”

“ I talk to Maryland a lot since they were my first offer. I talk to Coach Brown (defensive coordinator) and Coach Sollazzo (defensive line). I haven't visited Maryland yet, but I have brothers that go to Villanova and Towson, so next time I go to see them I will definitely visit Maryland. They said I could come in and fight for starting position right away since many of the offensive linemen are leaving. I want to play right away so that does play into Maryland's favor.”

Hart has taken unofficial visits to Alabama, Florida, and Miami. He plans on taking official visits to Florida and Florida State at some point in the future. When it comes to making a decision, Hart has not set a deadline. “I would like to hopefully decide during my senior season, but I may wait until after the season. It really depends on how the process goes.” Hart also added he will narrow his list down in the coming months. “I do not have a leader at the moment, but I will narrow down my top 5 after our spring game.”

Although no deadline has been set in stone Hart knows what is important in selecting a school. “ I want a school with strong academics. I am also looking for a school that has a strong fan base and opportunity for me to play fairly early. The location of the school is not a major factor, but it will weigh into the decision. “I do not mind going somewhere that is kind of cold, but I would prefer not to go somewhere really cold.”

The next couple months will be different for Hart. He is transferring from Cardinal Gibbons High School to St. Thomas Aquinas High School to finish his junior year and to play football next fall. This will allow for Hart to compete against stiffer competition, St. Thomas Aquinas being one of the top high school teams in the nation, and to show off his skills to college coaches. Hart also recently attended the National Army Combine where he won top offensive linemen for the junior class. He does not have any plans at the moment to attend other combines.
