St Paul, Minn. Cretin-Derham offensive line prospect Raphael Eubanks (6-foot-3, 290 pounds) has added two additional scholarship offers over his spring break.
“Both Stanford and Northwestern have made official scholarship offers," Raphael Eubanks said. “Both my parents and I are very happy and excited about getting offers from both schools. Academics are without question my top priority in choosing a school, and both Stanford and Northwestern offer a great education."
"I'm really excited to have so many options this early. Both Wisconsin and Arizona State are very good schools and good football programs as well, and I'm going to look at both schools closely."
Raphael Eubanks, who now has from Wisconsin, Arizona State, Iowa, Kansas State, Minnesota, Stanford and Northwestern, talked about his latest offers. "I've never been to Stanford, but it has a great reputation both academically and athletically. The weather would also be a nice change, and despite the school being far from home I'm going to give them a lot of serious consideration. I'm planning on camping at Stanford this summer."
Eubanks thoughts on Northwestern? "I've been to Evanston once and I've been to Chicago a few times. Northwestern also has a lot to offer, and from what I remember Northwestern is just a beautiful campus. It's in the Chicago area, so it's closer to home. I could definitely see myself there, and I'm also very excited to have an opportunity from Northwestern."
So does Eubanks have any early leaders? "(Laughing) No, I'm just going to take all of these offers in first before I start to eliminate any schools. I'm just flattered to have so many early options, and until I have a chance to really do some research on each school, everyone is my favorite for now."
