Cary Angeline was not able to attend any college camps this summer. Offers are flowing in, anyway.
Word is spreading quickly that the Exton, Pa., Downingtown East four-star tight end is a serious talent. This week along, Big Ten program’s Ohio State and Iowa threw their hats in the ring. The two schools join North Carolina as the latest to offer the 6-foot-7, 230 pound junior.
“I didn’t really think it was coming,” Angeline said of the Ohio State offer. “I noticed a few of the coaches started following me on Twitter, and then they contacted my coach to call them.”
Angeline placed a call to the Buckeyes’ offensive coordinator, Ed Warinner, to see what was up. An offer was waiting on the other end of the line.
“He was saying how they have tight ends now that are seniors and juniors, and that they are looking for someone in my class,” Angeline said. “They liked my film and think I could fit.”
“I know they’re always one of the best teams in the country just about every year, and Urban Meyer is one of the best coaches out there. I’m definitely excited.”
At North Carolina, Angeline met the Tar Heels’ tight ends coach, Seth Littrell, during a visit earlier this year to Chapel Hill.
The junior enjoyed the trip, and considering the program’s recent offer, it enjoyed his film, too.
“I was very excited by that offer,” Angeline said. “It was just awesome, the football facilities were great, and the Tar Heel blue was just everywhere. It looked really cool.”
Littrell made an impression, too.
“He seems like a very cool guy, and was very upfront,” Angeline said. “He was just telling me they had [Eric] Ebron last year, and that they used him very well. They use the tight end well, and could get me the ball but also have me blocking, as well.”
Iowa is a program the junior is still learning about, but like many of the 14 programs that have offered to date, it feels he could fit in not just in its scheme, but also its university, too.
Angeline added he hopes to take as many unofficial visits as possible to games this fall, though he has yet to pick which schools he will travel to.
