With two early offers, recruiting is picking up for 2014 linebacker Brenon Thrift of Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway. As his process continues, more and more schools are beginning to get in touch with the dominant sophomore.
"I have offers from West Virginia and Pittsburgh, but no new offers yet," said the6-foot-3, 230-pound Thrift. "I've been hearing a lot from Michigan, Penn State and Ohio State. A lot more big time schools are coming after me like Maryland, West Virginia and Pitt."
Thrift is also in the process of taking a visit this weekend and will hit up an in-state camp later this month.
"I'm going to Toledo this weekend, so hopefully they offer me," said Thrift. "I don't really know a ton about them but I am interested. I'm also going to a camp at Penn State in mid-June."
As Thrift continues to attract more attention and look for more offers, is there a school that he already likes?
"I like West Virginia a little more than Pitt right now," explained Thrift. "I followed West Virginia a lot growing up. I'm a big Mountaineer fan."
Last season Thrift played at Munhall (Pa.) Steel Valley, where he recorded 115 tackles, 50 solo tackles and three sacks while earning all-conference honors. Recently, Thrift transferred to Gateway and he could not be more eager for the season to start.
"We're working hard in the weight room now, looking forward to having a good and exciting year," he said. "We've got a good squad this year and I'm looking forward to competing and going all the way."
