NJ Lineman Narrowing the Field

Shadu Moore has received 20-30 scholarship offers. What has Penn State's level of interest been in this super prospect from the neighboring state of New Jersey?

Paterson Catholic, Paterson, New Jersey

According to Shadu, he has received between 20 and 30 scholarship offers.  He has already begun the process of narrowing thing down to a few, select teams.

"I don't have any official visits scheduled yet, but I have a few ideas," Shadu said as he listed his current finalists.  "Syracuse, Boston College, Virginia, Maryland, Pittsburgh and Miami.  I visited Maryland, Syracuse and Boston College [unofficially].  I don't really have a favorite."

Has Penn State offered Shadu a scholarship?

"I haven't really spoken to Penn State.  When I spoke to them one time, they were telling me that they did, but I don't know.  I spoke to Penn State like once.  They've been calling for a while, but I'm never home."

Apparently, Penn State has not been pursuing Shadu as hard as many other teams have.

"Back in May, they didn't look at me as hard.  I didn't build a relationship with their coaches."

Shadu is looking for a school with good academics and a good social life.
