Dorian O'Daniel of Our Lady of Good Counsel (Olney, Md.) said Scarlet Knights assistant coach P.J. Fleck told him Rutgers was verbally offering.
Including the Rutgers offer, the 6-foot, 200-pound O'Daniel hit double digits.
O'Daniel was speaking after rushing for 133 yards and two scores on 29 carries in a 34-14 win against Red Lion Christian Academy (Bear, Del.), but he said most of the schools to offer view him as an outside linebacker, which is fine with him.
"For the time I've been playing, I think I'm a little better at running back, but I think this year I have the potential to be better at linebacker," O'Daniel said. "That's going to be my main focus now that Wes is healthy. I know he didn't play much (Saturday), but later in the season he should be 100 percent and I will be able to focus on linebacker.
"As of right now, I kind of like linebacker better because I know that's what I'm probably going to play in college, so I want to focus on that."
Despite double digit offers, O'Daniel's recruitment is in its infancy. He said he did not make any summer visits, and hasn't given a lot of consideration to what he wants in a school, although he does have an outline.
"I want a strong academic program followed by a good coaching staff and an environment that makes me feel at home," said O'Daniel, who talked about a potential major. "I like engineering, but I'm still young. If something piques my interest, I will look at it."
O'Daniel's focus now is on the season, and also improving his game.
"Individually, I want to prove I'm a player that can go both ways," he said. "I want to break 100 tackles, and have fun while I'm doing it."
