Maryland has already targeted four Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.) junior recruits, and the Terps could…
Corbin Has One Offer, Plenty of Suitors
Add running back Reggie Corbin to the talent-laden list of Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga standouts with an offer. Illinois became the first to offer the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Corbin, who is also hearing from Duke, Rutgers, Maryland, Georgia Tech, East Carolina and Wake Forest. "It was basically a relief," Corrbin said of the offer. "I didn't know who was going to offer me first, or when it was going to come, or if it was going to come. It felt great and my team was excited for me. "(Illinois) told me they were interested and they wanted to build a relationship with me. They want me to come out there and visit the school and see the campus." Corbin said he doesn't know much about the Illini – "but I will," he added – and is trying to schedule a trip. This weekend he will be at Duke for a junior day event, and is hoping to connect with the staff. "I want to see the players' lifestyle, how the coaching staff interacts with the players and how supportive the school is with the football team," Corbin said. "I know they're supportive of the basketball team, with it being a basketball school. I just want to get a feel for Duke." Closer to home, his head coach, Aaron Brady, is a former Rutgers linebacker, so he knows a little about the Scarlet Knights, who already extended offers to teammates Marcus Lewis and Jabari Greenwood. "We don't talk about it that much, but he's said a few things," Corbin said. "He tells me that they like me and everything like that, but they haven't offered me." Maryland is another school showing Corbin plenty of interest. The Terps not only offered Lewis and Greenwood, but also Gonzaga offensive lineman Richie Petitbon and quarterback Nick Johns. "They tell me they're really interested in me, but we don't really talk about football," said Cobin, who also plays for Gonzaga's nationally-ranked rugby team. "They call me and ask me about rugby, since that's a sport I'm playing. I guess they just want to build a bond, a close relationship with me. I guess we'll see what happens when I get down there." Georgia Tech recently began speaking with Corbin, and he is contemplating a visit there as well. "I don't know if I can get there for junior day, but they told me they would give me my own personal junior day," Corbin said. "I talked to the coach (Thursday) morning and he told me I should come down there (to visit). They really started showing me some love, but I haven't really looked into them yet, but I will."
