"I'm not really sure, but I'd say I have around 15 or 16 offers," Philadelphia (Pa.) West Philadelphia defensive lineman Derrell Hand said. "But I've cut it down to five favorites."
"Notre Dame, Michigan State, Miami, Wisconsin, and Iowa are the five. All five offered. Iowa, Wisconsin, Notre Dame, and Michigan State offered in writing."
"And I haven't ruled out LSU, Syracuse, and also North Carolina State. Those three offered too."
"I really don't have a favorite."
"I haven't set up any official visits yet. But my parents and my coach and I are talking about it. Most likely I'll take all five visits, unless I run out of time. I want to make my decision after the season."
The 6-foot-2 and 305 pound Hand registered eight sacks during his junior season. He is the No. 41 defensive tackle prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 19 overall prospect in the state of Pennsylvania.
