Delaware TE Considering UNC

Despite having a self assigned deadline for his college decision of the end of summer, Andrew Sczerba won't dive deep into his recruitment until after this weekend. At that point, he will sit down with his parents and decide which schools he will visit over the next couple of months.

"I have a family wedding this Saturday, so we plan on really getting into the recruiting and stuff after the wedding," said Sczerba. "I definitely plan to head back to the University of Virginia, go check out Penn State again, and I plan on checking out the University of Maryland."

Sczerba, a 6-foot-6 250-pound tight end, holds scholarship offers from Duke, Iowa, Maryland, North Carolina, Penn State, Rutgers, Syracuse, Virginia, and West Virginia. He claims every offering school is under consideration.

"I'm still considering every school and [UVa, PSU, and UM] are the only schools that I have been close enough to get to and visit," said Sczerba. "I'm not canceling anyone out. After this weekend I'm going to really sit down with my parents and either eliminate some schools that I don't see myself being at or visiting some schools that I haven't already visited."

Outside the schools he has already unofficially visited, Sczerba has had little contact with coaching staffs.

"We can't receive phone calls from coaches – I have to call them, and I don't receive text messaging on my phone so that's the reason why I haven't spoken to most of the schools I haven't [unofficially] visited," said Sczerba.

"I've talked to [North Carolina] maybe twice on the phone and received a few emails. They were trying to get me down there during the summer."

Sczerba is reserving any thoughts on the Tar Heels until after a possible campus visit.

While he tries to stay away from the leader tag, Virginia is currently in the best position for Sczerba.

"As of right now, I really like Virginia," said Sczerba. "I'd have to say, if I had to make a decision right now, I might lean towards [Virginia], because I've been there so much and I've got to know the players and coaches. Penn State and the other schools are still up there, too."

During his junior season, Sczerba was a big part in Wilmington (Del.) Salesianum's state championship squad. In a run oriented offense, Sczerba received limited touches, but caught two touchdown passes. He earned first team all-conference and second team all-state honors.
