"Rutgers was one of the first schools to offer and the showed me a lot of interest and I like that. I have set up a visit for December 6, 2002. I am being recruited by their entire staff."
Incredibly, this awesome athlete didn't start playing high school ball until the last 6 games of last year. Last year he had 12 sacks, 46 tackles, 2 touchdowns off of fumble recoveries, 5 forced fumbles and 1 blocked punt. This year in his first game he started off with three sacks, 5 tackles total for 15 yards in total losses. In his choice of a school Tranell is looking for a place where he is comfortable and where he gets along well with the players. The coaches will matter also. "I won't to go to a school where the coaches really want me," he noted. That is a real plus for the Scarlet Knights who were among the first to offer him. Tranell was so impressed that he set up his only official visit to date with the Knights. He'll be on campus December 6 of this year. Will RU be able to sign him? He told me that he is interested in a school with a good graduation rate academically and also he'll take note of how many players a school puts into the NFL.
Stay tuned for more on this exceptional player.
