John Sullivan is, according to many recruiting services, the best offensive lineman to come out of Connecticut in the last ten years. According to TheInsiders.com, Sullivan is the 56th ranked offensive lineman in the nation. InsideCarolina recently caught up with Sullivan to discuss his recruiting situation.
Offers: Currently has approximately 30 offers.
Favorites: Boston College, Miami, Michigan, North Carolina and Notre Dame.
Some other offers: Connecticut, Maryland, Michigan State, Northwestern, Penn State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
While many of the recruiting services have Sullivan locked as future college offensive lineman, he is equally talented on the defensive line. Last season, Sullivan registered thirty tackles for loss as well as 12 sacks. He really has no preference as to which side of the ball the coaches place him, he just wants to play.
Sullivan also wrestles for Greenwich High School. He considers the wrestling skills a big plus for his football career.
So what are the goals of a young man who has already been selected twice to the all-state team, in both his sophomore and junior seasons. "I want to win the state championship. We got there in each of my last two seasons, only to lose the championship game. The individual awards are nice, but this is a team sport and a championship is the utlimate team goal."
Sullivan made it very clear that he has his five favorites, Boston College, Miami, Michigan, North Carolina and Notre Dame. He plans to made visits soon to his two favorites, "I plan to visit Michigan and Notre Dame soon, but I will take official visits to all five after the season."
Sullivan is a self assured, determined young man who knows what he is looking for and how to get it. Look for this one to go down to the wire and one team will be very happy with his choice.
