<B>Football Recruiting</b> Queen of Peace (NJ) High School defensive end <B>Mike Gee</b> is rapidly collecting scholarship offers and the 6-foot-2, 235-pound prospect is planning to visit Louisville in the near future.

A former teammate of Cardinal signees Darius Mann and Brian Roche, Mike Gee, who transferred to Queen of Peace High School from Don Bosco Prep prior to the start of his junior season, has planned an unofficial visit to Louisville.

"I want to see the academic situation and get to know the coaches on a personal level," Gee told

The 6-foot-2, 235-pound defensive end will join his former Don Bosco teammates and visit the U of L complex for a few days during the start of spring practice.

"I have known them both since I was a freshman," said Gee of Darius Mann and Brian Roche. "They'll give me tips on how to handle [the recruiting process] because they have been through it."

Gee has previously unofficially visited Boston College, Connecticut, Rutgers and Virginia.

Following his transfer Gee was required to sit out most of the first half of the season. Despite playing in just six games as a junior, Gee totaled 45 tackles, 6 sacks and an interceptions.

"My only goal for my senior year is to win the state championship," said Gee. "Everything else will take care of itself. I haven't stopped working out since the season ended, so I'll be ready."

When it comes time for the highly sought after defensive end to make a college decision, he will have plenty of options. Schools such as Iowa, Louisville, Nebraska, North Carolina, Rutgers and Wiscosin have already extended scholarship offers.

"I couldn't tell you right now, I have no idea really," Gee said of possible early favorites. "I can tell you that I am looking at Louisville and Rutgers a lot right now."
