Floyd racking up offers

Philadelphia (Pa.) George Washington defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd is a coveted prospect at his position and should have college coaches flocking to his school to check him out over the next year.
The 6-foot-3, 294-pound tackle recently picked up an offer from FIU. He now holds scholarships from Penn State, Temple, Rutgers and UCLA, in addition to his latest offer from the Terps.
"I'm actually trying to get back up to Maryland in April," he said. "I'm trying to get to a lot of down south schools like Georgia, Miami and all around there. Then I'll head over to California over the summer. I'm hoping to visit Penn State sometime this month if I can or possibly during April or May. I don't have a leader at all though, I'm staying open.
While Floyd plans on taking a look at UCLA, the Bruins have a lot of work to do before he seriously considers them.
"Well, I'm cool with the schools that are closer to home. I'm not too strong with some of the schools out west. I just don't want to have to sit out my freshman year.
"Based on the research I've done on the internet, I think I would have to sit no matter how good I am.
"I'm still open but I really like the Big East and some of the Big Ten schools. I'm really solid on them. They're nearby and I just have a good feel for them."
Some offers that could be coming in include UConn, Pitt, Boston College and Georgia.
