Offers are beginning to pile up for Owings Mills (Md.) Good Counsel cornerback Blake Countess. The 5-foot-10, 171-pounder claims half a dozen scholarships. Does anyone lead at this time?
"I now have offers from Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Maryland, Notre Dame and Illinois," he said. "My list is growing pretty fast, but I am still undecided."
Do any of the offers impress the Maryland prospect?
"I like Notre Dame obviously," he said. "It's because of the history and I like Coach Kelly, and his attitude. I've called my position coach there too and he's really cool as well."
Countess will be taking his first visit this spring over the upcoming weekend and more are coming in the near future.
"I'm going to Wake Forest this weekend," he said. "Then, sometime in March I'm going to Notre Dame for a visit."
With trips coming up, what does he want to see on his visits?
"I just want to go on these visits and see the campus in general and check out the academics," he said. "I want to meet the coaches at the schools and see how these teams do things."
