Running back Jordan McCrae had a very successful junior season at Greensburg (Pa.) Greensburg Central Catholic, and is now beginning to reap the benefits. McCrae has taken two recent visits and is now looking to check out a few more schools.
"Recruiting is good right now," said McCrae, who is 5-foot-10 and 175-pounds. "I have visited Maryland and Pitt and have also had contact with Air Force and Illinois."
Both of the visits left a favorable impression on McCrae.
"The visits went great," he said. "I liked both of them and both of the schools seemed very friendly, and it would be nice to attend either of the places."
There are a few more schools that McCrae would like to visit in the coming months.
"I would like to visit Penn State, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame and I'm also waiting for a few more invitations," said McCrae, who is also piecing together his summer camp schedule. "I am most likely going to attend camps at Penn State, Maryland, Pitt and West Virginia."
Aside from all of these visits, McCrae will also participate at the VTO Camps/Rivals.com Elite 100 Camp in Pittsburgh on April 15th.
When it comes time to make a final choice, McCrae already knows what he will be looking for in a school.
"I am looking for a school with good academics, a good college environment, as well as a good football program," said McCrae. "I hope to find a program that will give me a fair opportunity to showcase the talents that I have."
During his junior season McCrae rushed for approximately 1,300 yards on 150 carries and finished with 19 total touchdowns.
"I would like to improve all aspects of my game, because I don't think I will ever achieve perfections so I stride to be just that," said McCrae.
