"I have offers from Syracuse
," said Joseph Scelfo
. "A bunch of schools have said they are going to evaluate me
during the spring. I have been talking a bunch of them.
"I talk to Marshall
a lot. Virginia Tech
, Georgia Tech
have been in contact with me as well as Wake Forest
. I am going to Mobile tomorrow to visit South Alabama
. I am then taking a visit to Tulane
on Wednesday. I am going on
a visit to Clemson this weekend."
Scelfo took an unofficial visit to Georgia
this past weekend.
"The visit to Georgia was nice," he said. "I watched practice. They looked good. They are only 10 minutues from my house. I talked
coach Friend. He offered me when he was at UAB. We talked for a little bit. He is settling in right now.
"I started communicating a lot with coach Friend towards the end of last season. He then offered me on signing day when
he was still at UAB. He is a good coach and good guy. I respect him a lot."
The Peach State prospect has interest in the Bulldogs, and believes a key signee might make a difference in their future.
"Georgia is a really good program," said Scelfo. "They struggled a lot last year, but they got a big time running back from
Carver [Isaiah Crowell
]. I think he will help them out a lot."
Scelfo has favorites which do not include the Bulldogs. He is leaning to
Virginia Tech, Clemson, Georgia Tech and Marshall.
: "I like the location. I like Virginia. The coaching staff is cool. It's a cool place to play. The stadium
is real nice. It's a good place to go."
: "It's only an hour and a half from my house. The environment is cool. The fan base and coaches are cool. I am going there
Saturday to get an inside look at everything."
: "I lke coach Johnson and coach Sewak. I get up there a lot. All the players are real cool there. They
all take the recruits in pretty well."
: "I am going up there April 23. I have a close relationship with coach Ratliff. He is awesome. I have known him since when I was born.
My dad coached at Marshall with him."
The 6-foot-2, 276-pound lineman talked about his strengths and areas to improve.
"I play to the whistle," he said. "I am good at the little things. I am good with the use of my hands. I fire off the
ball pretty quick. Coaches like that I am physical.
"We don't really pass block too much at our school. If I go to a college that passes more I will need
to work on it. I am not bad at it, we just don't do it much."
Joseph Scelfo, offensive guard from Bogart-North Oconee, Ga., has received a pair of scholarship offers. One offer came when an assistant coach was at one school, but now coaching an SEC program. Scelfo talked about the latest developments of his recruitment.
