WV TE Receiving Offers

Nick Stefanow put together an impressive performance in front of the Penn State coaching staff during the Nike Camp in April. He now has three offers. Are the Nittany Lions one of the three?

Name: Nick Stefanow
Position: TE, DE
Height: 6'4 1/2"
Weight: 215 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.66
Bench Press: 350
School: Wheeling Park High, Wheeling, WV

"I have 3 offers: Ohio University, Purdue and Duke," the lean tight-end who is now up to 215 pounds said.  "A lot of schools are looking at me as a tight-end that they can split out and do a bunch of different things with.  Maryland came to my school and they were looking at me at defensive-end, but everyone else is [recruiting me as a] tight-end."

The other teams Nick mentioned as expressing the most interest are Virginia, Penn State, West Virginia, Pitt and Stanford.

Stefanow previously named Pitt and Penn State as his two favorites, but now he is more open and taking a look at several other schools as well.

"This next month, I'm going all over the place.  I'm going to visit Purdue, Ohio, Virginia and possibly Duke.  I'm going to camp at Pitt, Penn State, West Virginia and maybe a one-day camp at Virginia."

Stefanow is still very interested in Penn State.

"They came to my school the day after the Nike Camp.  They also called on the
phone and then I went and visited.   I like it up there a lot.  Coach Carter and I correspond through email."

Nick, who attended both the Blue-White game and the Nike Camp in April, returned to Penn State on May 10 with his whole family.  Coach Carter gave them a tour of the campus.

"I know they're waiting on a couple of kids because he (Carter) said I was like on the middle of their list.  I'm going to go to camp and see what happens."
