Royal's Recruitment Off To A Fast Start

Junior wide receiver Eddie Royal put up big numbers this past season for Coach Tom Verbanic's Westfield program. Thanks to a sensational junior season, college recruiters are sending Royal information daily, making Royal one of the most sought after prospects in Virginia.

Westfield wide receiver Sean Glennon, Royal has put together an impressive display on film for college recruiters.

"Eddie's 5'10, 170 and is a 4.4 guy although I don't really believein handheld times," Coach Verbanic said. "He's the fastest kid I've ever seen in Northern Virginia." "Last year, he was as good a receiver as there was in the area," Verbanic said. "The thing with Eddie is that although he's a deep threat, his yards-after-catch are big as well. He's also a very good kick returner. He touched the ball 14 times on kicks and returned five for touchdowns."

Recieving, Royal caught a total of 48 passes for 905 yards. He also scored eleven receiving touchdowns.

With that impressive data, it's no wonder that Royal has colleges all over him. Just like his teammate Sean Glennon, Royal is getting interest from all of the ACC, Michigan, Marshall and Virginia Tech.
