Bronx (N.Y.) Christopher Columbus junior defensive tackle Al Page comes from an area that is more known for the basketball talent that it produces than the football talent.
That said, the 6-foot-3, 290-pound lineman will have college coaches flocking to his high school throughout the recruiting process for the next year.
Maryland, Rutgers and Syracuse have already put offers on the table for Page, and his list of favorites looks identical to his offer list.
"My favorites are Syracuse, Rutgers and Maryland," Page said in an interview with Rivals.com.
"I've visited Rutgers and that was about two weeks ago. It was a press day or a press week ... something like that. I really liked the school's weight room facility and the campus. It's a nice campus. I also like the locker rooms and jacuzzi they have. I was really impressed with all of that.
"I talked to Greg Schiano and had a one-on-one with him. I talked to the strength coach, the recruiting coach and the defensive line coach, too."
Page is hoping to learn more about Syracuse and Maryland in the near future.
He is also receiving mail from Duke, Wisconsin, Illinois, UCLA and Purdue.
