New England isn't exactly a hotbed for recruiting talent, but that may change a bit this year with athlete Torrey Mack. After rushing for 1,800 yards and 21 touchdowns along with 145 tackles on defense, the 6-foot-0, 190-pounder out of Statford, Conn. is a sleeper no longer.
"He's got 10 offers," Stratford head coach Duane Shirden said. "I know he's got offers from Connecticut, Virginia, Maryland, Penn State, Iowa and Virginia Tech. There are plenty of schools inquiring about him too including Boston College, Syracuse, Michigan and Florida."
Are there any leaders for Mack at this time?
"He has told me Connecticut, Virginia and Maryland are his top three," he said. "He hasn't gone into detail about those and likes all the schools. He wants to weight his options.
"Last month he went on visits to Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia and likes those three a lot."
Shirden went on to discuss what makes his star talent stand out.
"He can excel at the next level as a running back or defensive back," he said. "His instincts, physicality and speed make him stick out at either position.
"As a person, he's a humble young man that is a great competitor. He has a great character to him and is a good student that works hard in the classroom. Qualifying will not be an issue."
Mack earned all-state honors the past two years at Stratford.
