"I got my first offer from Delaware in the spring," Jake Low said. "It was a great feeling and I just felt like all the hard work was paying off, but I need to just continue to stay focused and working to get better. North Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Clemson, Maryland and NC State are also showing interest."
Of all the schools, he said North Carolina, Virginia Tech and Virginia are recruiting him the hardest, and gave a quick thought on each.
North Carolina: "(Running back) coach (Larry) Porter has been recruiting me since seventh grade," said the 5-foot-10, 195-pound Low. "He's been recruiting me hard and developed a good relationship with me and my family."
Virginia Tech: "They have a lot of tradition and have always been a really good football program. They also recruit well in my area. Two of my teammates -- Tahj Capehart and Tayvion Land -- just committed there. They have a lot of momentum in the area when it comes to recruiting."
Virginia: "I like the new coaching staff a lot. They make the players work hard and they're all about developing character. It's not just about football with them."
The Bishop Sullivan star will visit Virginia today.
"I'm looking forward to watching them practice and seeing the intensity." Low said. "I also want to get to know the coaches better and continue to develop relationships."
Last fall, Low finished with 546 yards rushing and eight touchdowns. Defensively, he had 23 tackles, six tackles for loss, two sacks, two pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Bishop Sullivan opens their season Aug. 26 on the road against Liberty Christian at 7 p.m.
