Shrive Will Attend The Rutgers Junior Day

Four star lineman Eric Shrive is a highly touted player and picked up multiple honors for his performance last season. He's currently holding five offers from Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse, Illinois and N.C. State. Come see what he had to say about his recruiting.

Four star offensive lineman Eric Shrive said he's "wide open" right now and has no favorite schools yet.

Right now Shrive has offers from Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse, Illinois and North Carolina State. He has been on unofficial visits with all of the five schools that have sent him offers.

Shrive plans on going on more unofficial visits during the spring, but isn't too sure of where he will go besides Illinois. He also wasn't sure of what camps he would be attending.

The 6-foot-7 280 pound lineman from Scranton, Penn. plans on attending Rutgers' junior day this Saturday. "They have been a great top notch program the past few years," Shrive said. "Last few years they have been doing great and the coaching staff is doing a great job of getting recruits."

In what will factor into his final decision, he said, "I want to go to the place where I'll be able to make the biggest impact. I also want to see the kids I'm playing with and how I get along with the coaching staff."

West Scranton High School went 12-2 and lost in the state quarterfinals last season. Shrive was given plenty of recognition for his play as he received many postseason honors such as First Team All-Conference (on both sides of the ball), All-Region, First Team All-State, OT Super 16 Dream Team, and runner up for the Hooker Reap award that goes to the best offensive lineman.

"I think I made a big jump from my sophomore year to my junior year," he said. "I performed well, but there are things I need to improve on and I will work on those in the off-season."
