Leo Ferrine

Leo Ferrine has already visited Rutgers. "I liked that visit," said Ferrine. They are building a new weight room that is going to be huge. Their team is all freshmen and sophomores. They went 5-7 last year so they will only get better."

Ferrine also has three more visits scheduled. "I have Penn State on January 16th, Notre Dame January 23rd, and Virginia on January 30th. Penn State and Virginia have offered me. Notre Dame has not yet, but I think they will."

That offer might be coming next week. "I think they are going to offer me on Tuesday. Coach Simmons and Coach Willingham are coming on Tuesday and I think they'll offer me then."

As of now, Penn State is the leader. "They have taken the lead. They've been with me for a while, and I like what I've seen about Penn State."

Virginia is also a strong consideration. "I liked Virginia as well. I've been there a few times. I've been to a game. I've been impressed every time I go there."

If the Irish offer, will they jump into the lead? "If they offer, that would put them up there. I like Notre Dame a lot. They have one of the top programsin the country. To get a degree from there would feel great."

Ferrine says the Irish are recruiting him as a corner. "They like me at corner. Everyone likes me more for a corner. I don't mind playing corner at all. I wouldn't mind playing offense, too."

Comments: If the Irish offer, expect them to jump to the top. Ferrine has liked Notre Dame since the beginning. Penn State and Virginia will be tough to beat. Still, Ferrine has been waiting for an Irish offer. We should know more after he receives an offer.
