Around the State
Apr 07, 2005Liberty (Bealeton) offensive lineman Alex Stadler and Varina running back Brandon Minor keep on rolling. Athlete Brandon Caleb picked up two more offers, from programs in the Big 10 and the Big 12 respectively.
Alex Stadler’s spring break tour of several SEC and ACC programs yielded excellent results. The 6-6, 300-pound Stadler picked up offers from Alabama, Florida State and Georgia – he visited all three on the trip – and, according to head coach Tommy Buzzo, has also added N.C. State and Pitt to the mix.
Right now, Stadler, who is being recruited to play offensive guard on the next level, easily has double digit offers and is approaching 20 total. Other programs to have offered include Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina and Virginia Tech.
6-0, 205-pound tailback Brandon Minor picked up an offer last week from the University of Georgia earlier this week according to Varina assistant coach Blanda Wolfe. Georgia joins Florida and Tennessee as SEC schools that have offered the talented back. Other programs to offer include Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
In a March 28th update, Minor listed Miami, Florida, Michigan and Nebraska as his favorites. Virginia, Clemson and Georgia are his most recent offers.
Fork Union Military Academy product Brandon Caleb has received offers from Michigan State and Nebraska. Oklahoma was the first school to offer Caleb, who is a wide receiver/defensive back recruit. Oklahoma and Michigan State like him as a receiver while Nebraska is recruiting him to play safety.
Neither Virginia nor Virginia Tech has shown much interest in the early going, but Caleb indicated he would be interested in one of them if they were to offer.
“I haven’t really gotten anything from UVA or Virginia Tech,” Caleb said via e-mail. “I’m not all that interested in UVA. I wouldn’t say Virginia Tech’s out of the question.”
Caleb may attend the Nike camp in Blacksburg later this month.
