One of the best players out of Pennsylvania in 2006 is lineman Jared Odrick out of Lebanon.
The 6-foot-6, 295-pounder already has received offers from Maryland, Connecticut, Iowa, Virginia and Penn State and has received plenty of interest from schools across the country.
Are there any schools he hasn't heard from that he'd like to?
"I've gotten a little bit of mail from Georgia and Tennessee, but I'd like to see more because I like their programs," Odrick said.
Does Odrick have any favorites?
"In no particular order they are Michigan, Iowa, Virginia, Maryland and Penn State," he said. "They have all given me a lot of attention. I really like Larry Johnson so that's why I like Penn State, as for Michigan I like their program. Iowa was the first one to offer me, Virginia and Maryland stop by all the time and I have gotten to know the coaches."
Is there anything he specifically wants out of a school?
"I just want the opportunity to play early and to get looked at when I get there. I want to be comfortable with the staff and campus, but location is not much of a factor for me and I don't mind going far from home."
Odrick has already unofficially been to a few of the schools on his list. He has visited Penn State, Maryland, Virginia and Pittsburgh.
The left tackle and defensive end prospect was the bright spot during Lebanon's 2-8 season. He posteed 90 tackles and eight and a half sacks on defense. Odrick averaged four pancake blocks per game and didn't give up a sack all year.
These statistics presented him with a heap of awards as well. He was named all-county lineman of the year, second team all-state, first team all-section defensive end, first team all-section left tackle and first team all-league defensive end and left tackle.
"The team was very young and we went through a lot, but it'll help us this year," he said. "I came out more aggressive and was more of a leader this past year; I was a bigger guy on the field and got a lot stronger than my first two years."
The stud lineman prospect is being recruited as both an offensive tackle and defensive end, but which does he prefer to play?
"I'd like to play defense, but whatever works out and can further my career professionally is what I'll do.
"Michigan and Iowa haven't declared which position they want me for, but Virginia, West Virginia and Penn State want me as a defensive end and Maryland wants me as an offensive tackle."
This spring Odrick is planning to attend the Penn State Nike Camp for a second year in a row.
He also has plans to head to some of his other early favorites this summer for camps.
