North Carolina Lineman Still Considering MD

Stadnik, 2012 Lineman, is wide open in his recruitment

For Western Guilford (Greensboro, NC) offensive tackle Brock Stadnik, the college recruiting process has been a busy one. Already sporting 10 offers from Division 1 schools, including Maryland, Stadnik has been proactive in his recruitment by learning about and visiting various schools up and down the East Coast.

One of those schools that the 6’5” 280 pound lineman is eyeing is the University of Maryland. “Maryland was my first offer. Then came South Carolina, Wake Forest, Duke, ECU, Clemson, Florida, UNC, NC State, and Virginia Tech. Maryland offered me last summer. That was very exciting news. That first offer is always special.”

Maryland has reciprocated the interest in Stadnik, who has proven to be one of the premier offensive tackles on the eastern seaboard. “There have been a few coaches that came down to visit my school. I spoke with one of the position coaches who was very friendly and he talked about me trying to make a game this year but I don’t think that’s going to work out. He was talking about the program and all the good things about it.”

When asked about his thoughts on Maryland, Stadnik viewed the Terps favorably. “They’re doing pretty good this year. I think Maryland’s a great school, a great ACC school. It’s somewhat close to home, which I like. I’m just eager sometime in the future to take a visit.”

The coaching staff will play a vital role in Stadnik’s recruitment. “The coaching staff [is important]. I want to see the chemistry and how they value the players. I want them to value me as a person, not just as a number. I want the coaches to care about me and that will push me.”

Stadnik also has a rare opportunity to play Division 1 college football with a sibling. “The other thing is I have a twin brother and he’s getting looks from colleges so we’ll see what happens with him. Ideally we would like to play together but that may not work out.” Brock’s twin brother, Clayton, does not have any offers yet, but he has been receiving interest from schools such as South Carolina, East Carolina, Maryland, NC State, and Wake Forest.

So far Stadnik doesn’t have an idea of when he is going to commit, and he is still open to hearing from and learning about various schools.

So far, Maryland is in a good position with Brock Stadnik and it looks like that relationship will continue for quite some time.
