6-foot, 185-pound rising senior Kyle Marcinick is ready to get his recruitment going. The wide receiver has started hearing from several new schools.
"I'm hearing from Temple, Fordham, Toledo, Columbia, Yale, Akron and Rutgers," said Marcinick. "I've been going to a lot of camps this month and running pretty solid times, so I think once the camp circuit is over I hope to start receiving a good amount of offers."
The wide receiver has been hard at work while at these camps displaying his various skills.
"I think showed my combination of vertical speed and lateral quickness from my 40 an shuffle times. And then I've also shown my ability to get open and catch the ball through my performances in one-on-one's," he said.
It was at one of those camps where the receiver got the attention from the school that would become his first offer.
"I've received my first offer from Youngstown State," he said. "Their head coach, Coach (Eric) Wolford was the one that offered. He said they watched me a lot at the Ohio State camp and were impressed."
Marcinick is still learning about the school, but is excited to see his hard work pay off.
"I don't know that much about them, but I really liked the coaching staff. It just felt good to get the first official offer," he said.
