Class of 2015 offensive lineman Tommy Hatton has had a busy spring. He has visited three schools and has plans to visit more this summer.
In recent weeks the 6-foot-3, 270-pound offensive guard from Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph's has taken trips to Rutgers, UConn and Maryland.
Rutgers and UConn have already offered and he has a good amount of interest in each program.
"I really like Rutgers," Hatton said. "When I went there I felt like I was part of a family. I really like the coaches. My mom and dad and I were with coach [Anthony] Campanile and we were just messing around talking about high school football because he coached at Don Bosco. He was the offensive coordinator there when I was a freshman. Actually I was the first freshman to make varsity at my school.
"UConn was awesome too. I went with my friend Kevin Wilkins and they offered me while I was there. I really liked their facilities and their indoor practice field. Their coaches are really intense, which I like. They've put a lot of people like linebackers and corners into the NFL."
Up next for Hatton will be trips to Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Penn State and Pitt over the summer.
Hatton is confident Michigan will offer so he is unlikely to camp while he visits the school. He does plan to camp at Ohio State, Notre Dame and Penn State to try and impress those coaches.
He added that lots of coaches have visited St. Joseph's in the spring so he could be on the cusp of a surge in interest.
"Michigan really likes me a lot. They came to my school just for me. Pitt likes me too. I know Syracuse is going to offer because they told me [they would]."
