DE Has 40 Offers; May Visit UM

This outstanding defensive end prospect has been an absolute terror in the team's first two games of the season. He talks about those performances as well as the recruiting process. With over 40 scholarship offers, he's still strongly considering the Hurricanes. Read on to see what he thinks of the Hurricanes.

At 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds, Baltimore (Md.) Gilman standout defensive end Victor Abiamiri is a major reason why his team has started the season with two huge victories over nationally-ranked opponents. In those two wins, Abiamiri and his fellow defenders have given up just 12 total points and the standout defensive end now has 14 tackles and five sacks.

"We're off to a pretty good start," Abiamiri said. "The only thing is that they ran away from me in the first game and the second game, they used a lot of quick 3-step drops. I got four sacks in the first game and one the second game."

College coaches continue taking notice of the 16-year old defender, who is a full academic qualifier.

"Just in the last week or so a lot more coaches have been calling and asking me for a visit and stuff like that," he said. "I dont know what I'm going to do. Miami, Florida, Notre Dame, Stanford, Michigan, they're pretty much all calling again."

The talented defender said he's considering schools from every part of the country.

"Out West, I like Stanford, UCLA, and Southern Cal," he said. "I like Miami in the south. I like Notre Dame, Michigan, and Ohio State in the midwest, and I like Maryland and North Carolina on the east coast. I'm trying to figure out how to get that list down to five so I can set up some trips."

Abiamiri, who has a written scholarship from UM, talked about the Hurricanes.

"They called and talked about how they really want me," he said. "I think Miami's a place I could go in, play early, and make an impact. They're trying to set up a visit for me and I might do that. Miami's definitely one of the schools I'm looking at."

Abiamiri said he'd like to finish up his season before getting too involved in the recruiting process.

"I may set up a few visits or whatever but we're on a roll right now and I'd like to stay focused and help keep that going."
