Offensive guard Ron Brace is preparing for his first official visit, which he'll take this weekend. Does anyone lead going into the stretch run?
"Boston College is the team to beat," said Brace. "The academic opportunities, as well as the chance to play in a great conference is really helping them out. They're known for having good offensive lines, and that's something else I'm considering."
In the next four weeks Brace will take five official visits. How is he going to make that work?
"Well this weekend I'm going to Hofstra, and the next weekend I'll be at Northeastern and Boston College. On Thursday I'll be up at Northeastern, and on Friday and Saturday I'm going to be at BC. It will be a little bit of a rush, but everything will work out. After that I'll be going to UConn (Jan. 23) and UMass (Jan. 30)."
The 6-foot-4, 310-pound offensive guard from Worcester (Ma.) Burncoat has good athleticism and potential as a run blocking force. All of those schools have offered Brace a scholarship.
"I'll make a decision right after that UMass visit," he said. "It's already going to be late and I don't want to push it to the last day and feel rushed."
