Page Is One of SC's Best
The 6'5, 280 pound Page, who is currently rated as the #5 overall prospect in South Carolina by Scout.com, has already received several major scholarship offers, and he said he is enjoying getting to know the various different coaches that are interested in him.
"It's going good. I'm just talking to all of these coaches, and I like what they're saying. I'm getting some feedback and enjoying the recruiting process," said Page. "Right now I have offers from Colorado, Duke, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Tennessee, South Carolina, Clemson, and Florida."
New offers seem to be coming in on almost a daily basis for Page, and he has actually picked up offers from perennial powers Florida State and Penn State since the time of this interview. On top of his current offers, Page said he is also receiving strong interest from Boston College, Auburn, Louisville, and Central Florida.
Page had previously favored the Clemson Tigers, but with all of the new recruiting attention he is receiving, he has now decided to take a step back and check out his options.
"I don't have any favorites. All of them are about the same right now. I have my eyes open, and I'm trying to weigh my decision."
When asked to comment on the two major in-state programs, Page replied that South Carolina and Clemson are very similar in his eyes.
"To me right now, they're neck and neck. Basically both schools are well rounded in all the areas."
Page, who is being recruited by Coach David Reaves for the Gamecocks, discussed which junior days he hopes to attend in the near future.
"As far as junior days, I should be at South Carolina this weekend, and I want to go see Clemson and Georgia coming up soon. I'd like to get over to Tennessee too."
The athletic lineman shared what he is looking forward to during his time in Columbia this weekend.
"I just want to get to know the campus better and establish a better relationship with the coaching staff. I know David Reaves, and I know Coach Hunt, the offensive line coach. I really like both of those guys."
While he is still early on in the recruiting process, Page has a good idea of what he is looking for in a school.
"They have to have a good academic program. I like a stable coaching staff and just a good football team."
According to Page, he has not set any sort of a timeframe on a decision.
"I don't see a definite timeframe of when I'm going to make a decision."
When asked to describe what his strengths are on the football field, Page replied that he always plays with great effort.
"I'm aggressive. I hustle a lot, and I basically just do my job to the best of my ability."
Page, who starts on both the offensive and defensive lines for A.C. Flora, closed by sharing his goals for his senior season.
"We're going to have an excellent team. At every position we're going to have experienced guys. We're going to have a great, large senior class coming up this year. I'd like for us to go deep, deep into the playoffs. That's something A.C. Flora hasn't done in a long time."
