One of the hottest juniors in Pennsylvania is already sitting on five offers, and his team is 4-0, but Pottsgrove High of Pottstown, Pa., quarterback Terrell Chestnut isn't about to rest.
Chestnut is already being recruited hard by a number of schools, and he holds offers from Rutgers, Penn State, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Villanova.
"It's a good experience because not everyone gets a chance to be recruited by a college and get a scholarship,'' Chestnut said. "I'm trying to keep my options open, but at the same time I don't want to have a lengthy list. I want to have a general idea of where I want to go.''
Chestnut said it is way too early for him to compile a favorites list, but there are a few he wants to check out.
"I have a couple of schools in my mind that I want to go to,'' he said, "like Rutgers, like Penn State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia.''
The 6-foot, 170-pound Chestnut is also formulating the type of school, and football program, he wants to be part of.
"Right now it's kind of early to tell,'' Chestnut said. "I'm looking for a place that has a good environment, where I can get a great education, some where the coaching staff makes you work, they make you better and they push you hard.''
As for the season, Chestnut plays quarterback and safety for the Falcons, who outscored their opponents 135-28.
"My season is going pretty well right now,'' Chestnut said. "We're 4-0, but like I always say, you can easily go down if you have a lack of respect and overlook somebody. That's why I always tell my teammates not to underestimate somebody because we're always going to get the other team's best because that is the type of team history we have.''
