Early 2016 Scotch Plains (NJ) five-star defensive tackle Rashan Gary busted onto the scene last summer as a big-time prospect to watch. He collected offers from Alabama, Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, Maryland, and Virginia.
Gary has added four more in the past week from Florida State, Miami, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina.
He discussed his past few months with Scout.
"Things have been going pretty good for me," said Gary. "I picked up a few more offers and got straight A's for the last two semesters. I take pride in everything I do and I was very satisfied with my performance on the field too. It's been unreal so far and I'm grateful for the opportunities that I have been given."
The highly-rated sophomore was able to stop at a few schools last Spring and Summer but has yet to schedule any trips this time around.
"I don't have anything set up yet," Gary mentioned. "I don't know what visits I'll be taking. I'd like to see them all."
One of the stops Gary made last summer was at Ohio State. He camped in front of the Buckeye staff which lead to his offer. He has stayed in contact with the coaching staff in Columbus since then.
"Ohio State has been up at the school to check on me," he stated. "I haven't spoken to Coach Johnson yet since he was hired by them. I'm looking forward to doing that, though. I met him when he was at Penn State and we hit it off big-time."
"It was Coach Warinner that stopped by my school," Gary added. "I like Ohio State. Their history, intensity, and the passion of the coaches stick out to me. I never got a feel for the team because I never met the guys but I want to."
