"I had been laying off of the weights getting ready for the state track meet," said Rumsey. "My best with 185 is 27 reps." And how did the track meet go? "I finished 3rd in the state in both the shot put and the discus."
Rumsey's physical attributes are impressive, but they only tell half the story. Rumsey currently carries a 3.6 GPA, and he scored a 1330 on the SAT. Predictably, academics will play a large part in his recruitment.
"I'm going to Maryland, and I might visit some of the Ivy League schools in July. I'm looking at Maryland, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Harvard, Princeton, and Pennsylvania right now. I'm looking for a good combination of academics and athletics."
Rumey's size, quickness, and class work will make him a tantalizing prospect for several schools across the country.
