PA QB collects two offers

The consensus choice as the best PA QB in the Class of 2005 is starting to see the attention that comes with such a title.<br><br> Bill Stull of Seton-LaSalle HS in Pittsburgh just received offers from Kentucky and Akron, and others may be imminent.

"I was really excited," said Stull after Kentucky became the first to offer on Monday.

Bill Stull, Sr. says it was a relief to get the first one out of the way. "It finally hits you as a dad that your son is good enough to play for a major school like that," said Stull, Sr. "They have a beautiful campus and hey, they are in the SEC."

Seton-LaSalle assistant Damon Rosol, who is handling a lot of Stull's recruitment, says that Akron offered on Tuesday. Stull has now heard from approximately 40 schools, according to his father, and the race for his services is starting to heat up.

"Ole Miss called and said that they loved his mechanics and fundamentals," said Rosol, who, along with Stull Sr., credit Seton-LaSalle QB Coach Greg Perry. "They want to know if there was an interest on Billy's part, and if there is, they will be up to see him in May."

Two of the local schools are also getting into the mix heavily as West Virginia has invited Stull to their Junior Day at the end of March, where Seton-LaSalle coaches think a scholarship may be offered. And Pittsburgh invited him, as well as star teammate and other half of the lethal passing combo, Carmen Connolly, to the start of spring practice on Saturday.

Bill Stull continues to get much interest from Big 10 schools Iowa and Purdue, and Ohio State is still keeping in touch, according to Stull, Sr. Ohio State is the favorite team of the Stull family as they are originally from Ohio. Stull will, in fact, go to the Nike Camp at Ohio State, where he plans to match his skills with the best quarterbacks around.
