Boland eyes a visit, waiting for more offers

North Bethesda (Md.) Georgetown Prep offensive tackle Michael Boland holds one offer. The 6-foot-7, 295-pounder notes a number of other schools are keeping an eye on him early in the season.
"I have an offer from Tulane and I think for other schools it's going to come down to the first couple games of the season," he said. "Maryland, Boston College, NC State, Rutgers and Virginia are the main schools looking at me.
"A lot of them have said they really like me and I'm still someone to watch. I don't want to make any excuses, but I hurt my ankle in June and that set me back a bit."
Meanwhile, Boland touched on his lone offer.
"I haven't visited yet, but I plan to get down there very soon in September possibly for the Tulsa game," he said. "I like the coach I've talked to from there and I know it's a great school and they are building a great program."
In the meantime, the two-star lineman is preparing for the season, which opens next week against Fork Union.
"I think we have a chance to be really good," he said. "We have a lot of size on the line and we have a lot of good running backs. I think we have a couple really good wide receivers too and some young players.
"I feel I've gotten a lot stronger in the offseason and I'm a lot more explosive heading into this year. Also, my feet have gotten a lot better over the summer.
"I just want to make first team all-metro, but my main goal for my team is to be undefeated and win a championship."
