Under The Radar: Aaron Berry

<P>Bishop McDevitt could be the team to beat in Pennsylvania this year. The Crusaders feature five D-I prospects. On Friday, most of those key components visited Penn State. Aaron Berry may not be the most heavily hyped of the crew, but some major schools are taking notice.

On a Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt roster that is loaded with talent like LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Ricker, Jason Kates and Tucker Baumbach, wide receiver Aaron Berry seems to get lost in the shuffle. Now if you watch film of thee star quarterback Ricker, you’ll notice that most of his passes are thrown to No. 2.

That’s Berry his 5-foot-10, 170-pound wide receiver. Berry has recently picked up a few offers of his own.

“I got written ones from Minnesota, Virginia and Michigan State,” Berry said. “Florida and Maryland have told me they would be sending me an offer.”

Over the past few weeks, Berry has taken a handful of unofficial visits to Penn State, Florida and Miami. Berry was in State College on Friday prior to the Blue-White Game with a handful of his teammates.

Penn State: “It was good, it’s most definitely a football town there.”

Miami: “It was nice, its right on the beach. They have a nice campus there.”

Florida: “It’s another football town, I really liked it down there.”

In 2004, Berry missed five games with a separated shoulder and still managed to snare 40 receptions for 999 yards and 11 touchdowns. On defense he intercepted five passes. Berry was named first-team All-Conference (Mid-Penn).

Berry will participate in the Elite College Combine May 4. He has been invited to the Scout.com Combine at the University of Akron on May 28.
