Will LaLota be narrowing things down soon?

Anthony LaLota's (The Hun School, Princeton, NJ) recruitment picked up so rapidly that, at one point, it became difficult to keep track of who the latest offers had been. LaLota had told SOR much earlier in the recruiting season that his intention was to put an end to his recruitment during the early summer. Is that still the case?

Anthony LaLota's name is in all likelihood tacked at the top of the recruiting board of the majority of college football's biggest and most storied programs. LaLota, a humble young man confident in his abilities is taking the time to let it all sink in, appreciating every moment.

"The recruiting process is a lot of fun. I enjoy meeting the different coaches and appreciate them showing interest in me. I am very fortunate to have a lot of great schools that want me on their team. My parents share the same views as me on this," stated LaLota.

After eclipsing the double-digit figure (in scholarships) during the early part of this past spring, LaLota had indicated that he'd like to put an end to his recruitment during the early summer. Few could have known that his offer list would not only continue to expand, but double in size, making his selection from some of the top programs across the nation that much more difficult.

It's understandable that, given the situation, LaLota wants to evaluate all the schools extensively prior to narrowing things down.

"The timetable is either that I'll find the right fit for me and make my decision before the season, or wait until after the season if I'm not ready yet," stated LaLota.

Rutgers, LaLota's state school school, continues to be among the programs seeking the Garden State standout's services.

"Some of the RU coaches dropped by school yesterday (Tuesday, the 13th of May - this article was published several days after its composition) to talk to our coaches though. Coach Susan, Coach Emanuel, and Coach Fraser stopped by briefly just to say hello and speak with some of our coaches. Rutgers is one of the schools I am considering," said LaLota.

While things may not reach their absolute conclusion any time soon, the process will be moving more rapidly in the coming weeks.

"I haven't officially narrowed down my list but I will start to do so soon."
