Offer and visit lists growing for Valentine

Columbus Eastmoor's Justin Valentine's stock is rising. Duane Long caught up with him lately for an update.

Columbus Eastmoor's Justin Valentine is a player whose stock is certainly on the rise.  Ohio State has not offered, but his offer list is certainly becoming more and more impressive.

"I now have offers from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maryland, Boston College, Indiana and Arizona," he said.

Justin recently visited Minnesota and seemed to enjoy the trip.

"I just got back from Minnesota," he said. "It was a really good trip. There are 20 players from Ohio on the roster and 7 from right here in Columbus."

"Coach Mason is just great. There are some good young players. I really liked it a lot."

The rest of his visit schedule is almost set. 

"I will be going to Wisconsin this weekend, Maryland on Jan.10th and Boston College on Jan.17th," he said. "Coach Horton from Boston College was just here on Monday."

There has been some talk about where Justin will play on the next level, but he has made it clear he wants to focus on one position.

"Some schools have been recruiting me as a fullback and some as a linebacker, but the ones I am visiting want me as a running back."
