"I have one offer right now -- North Carolina State," Kassem told JCFootball.com earlier this week. "I have also heard from a lot of different schools that dropped by this spring too.
"The main ones I have talked to are Rutgers, Temple, Cincinnati, Connecticut, UCF, South Alabama and Kansas."
Kassem's older brother, Ali, signed with N.C. State and that is something that is very appealing.
"He sorta went through all of the process and chose the best place for him and that's when they offered me too," Kassem noted. "They offered me out of high school and said if I got the grades and stuff, then they would have a spot for me."
As a freshman this past fall, Kassem started every game, but not at one position.
"I started the season at center and started the first two games there and then I moved to guard and started the last eight games there," Kassem said. "I'm comfortable playing anywhere and I love being physical. I think that's what I do best -- I am physical.
"I am probably a better run-blocker just because of the way I play and how aggressive I am, but I feel comfortable in pass-pro too."
Kassem is on pace to graduate in December and he will have two years to play two following the 02014 football season.
