2010 linebacker prospect, Geno Porter, has been receiving a ton of interest from several major DI programs across the country. But no other conference has been showing the 6-0, 210 pound athlete more love than the ACC. The Fort Dorchester High star informed SCPrepNation that programs like Duke, Clemson, North Carolina State, and Georgia Tech have been very flirtatious with him early in the recruiting process.
According to Porter, things are certainly not one-side between him and the four ACC programs aforementioned. In fact, the Low Country has already taken a couple of road trips to pay each one of them a visit.
"I've been to Duke's Junior Day, and I've been to North Carolina State's Junior Day," the gifted run-stopper told SCPrepNation.com. "As far as Spring Practices, I've been Clemson and Georgia Tech. I also went back to Duke for one of their practices."
After having a chance to check out all four of the programs, the Low Country star enlightened us on what he likes about each one of them...
NC State: At NC State, Coach Bridge and I have a real good relationship. I really like what they're doing with their defense, running the spur linebacker, which is my position at Fort D. So I should fit in pretty well with them. The guy that plays the position for them is the exact same size I am.
Duke: Coach Cutcliffe is really turning things around. I also love the environment. Duke is a great school, with great academics, and it is also a great to place to play football.
Clemson: Clemson has an amazing stadium, and the crowd is always live and very energetic. They are also a very religious school. They put God first before everything, and God is definitely first in my life.
Georgia Tech: At GT, I like the city environment. It is also a very business oriented place. And they have a great engineering program as well.
None of the four ACC programs have extended Porter a scholarship offer. It appears as if they would like to evaluate him a little more before doing so. And they will have their chance this summer. "I have already signed up for the camps at NC State, Duke, and Georgia Tech," Porter said. "I may also go to the Clemson camp, if time permits."
Note: Porter also informed us during the interview that South Carolina has been showing interest in him, and that he's been kicking around the idea of camping with them over the summer.
