Maryland Junior Adds NU Offer

Damascus, Md., 2013 athlete Zach Bradshaw pulls in two more offers to reach the double-digits. Now that his season is done, what's next for the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder who hopes to pick his college destination before his senior year?

The offers keep coming in for the 6-foot-3, 205-pound athlete out of Damascus, Md. According to pop, Zach Bradshaw recently added Duke and Northwestern to the plate.

Not only does the 2013 prospect standout on the field, but also in the classroom as he carries an impressive (for lack of a better word) 4.0 grade-point-average.

He is a commodity.

And schools like Duke, Northwestern, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Maryland, West Virginia, Boston College, North Carolina State, Rutgers, and Virginia (just to name a few) have already taken notice.

With Bradshaw's 2011 season coming to a close, the family will direct all their focus on dissecting his double-digit offer list. His father hopes his son can make a decision before the 2012 season.

"It would be nice for him to get it out of the way before the season begins, so we will try to get to all of the schools," said Mike Bradshaw."Zach will not be playing basketball either this winter so we will have more time to focus on football and his decision"

This means that any last minute offers would most likely not have a chance, but then again, it's too early to tell.

The first stop on their road trip: The Battle of the Palmetto State.

"We are really trying to get down to that game. It will be a great game to see and South Carolina is his first and only SEC offer, so that will be great to see. We might try to see Clemson as well," added dad.

A Maryland native, Bradshaw has already watched his hometown favorite play four times this year. While most schools have him listed an an "athlete," the Terps are recruiting Bradshaw on the defensive side of the ball.

"Coach Edsall said if he had to choose today he would play Zach in the linebacker position, where [Kenny] Tate plays."

Quite the compliment for a kid who is only sixteen years old. Not to mention his father is an All-Conference linebacker, but there is still room for this 6-foot-3, 205-pounder to grow. He shows a lot of upside. His grandfather is 6-foot-5 and his mother also an All-Conference athlete. He has big hands and runs a 4.55 forty. This is a kid who could quite possibly could grow into a tight end or stay at wide receiver.

What will come of this 2013 standout? Only time will tell.
