Zach Bradshaw Is a Multifaceted Athlete

While it is still early in the recruiting process for the class of 2013, Damascus (MD) High athlete Zach Bradshaw has already garnered seven offers from FBS teams before the end of his junior season. Bradshaw's early collection of offers can be attributed to his success on the gridiron this season.

"It's going pretty well," Zach Bradshaw responded when asked about his team's season. "We are 7-1 right now, and we play our rivals, who are also 7-1, this Friday. Individually, I think I have around 800 yards of total offense and 10 touchdowns on the year."

Spending time at quarterback, wide receiver and outside linebacker for his high school team, Bradshaw has already received offers from Maryland, West Virginia, Boston College, Georgia Tech, NC State, Rutgers, and South Carolina. Although Rutgers is recruiting Bradshaw as a wide receiver, Bradshaw says that the majority of the schools have not indicated which position he would play if he were to commit to their program.

"A lot of schools don't know where they want me to play in college. Most of the schools are just recruiting me as an athlete. I don't really have a preference for which position I play in college, so it won't be a factor in my decision."

Despite the fact that the Yellow Jackets do not currently have a player from the State of Maryland on their roster, Georgia Tech certainly meets the criteria for what Bradshaw is looking for in his college destination.

"Academics are pretty high up there as a factor because I'm not going to play football forever. I kind of want to stay somewhat close to home, but I don't really know what the boundaries are for that yet. My family is used to taking ten hour trips every year, so maybe it will just have to be within driving distance."

Considering the fact that Bradshaw does not have a timeline for a decision as of yet, Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Al Groh, who is Bradshaw's recruiting coach for the Yellow Jackets, should have ample time to make a positive impression on the talented youngster. Bradshaw is already used to playing close to the line-of-scrimmage as an outside linebacker, which would certainly make for an easier transition if he were to end up in Atlanta.

With no more unofficial visits planned at the time, Bradshaw will be a busy man during the summer camp season, as he will try to visit numerous schools to narrow down his list of suitors.
