Jersey CB starting to receive big interest

Mt. Laurel (N.J.) St. Joseph's Prep cornerback Greg Castillo is receiving interest from numerous schools in the Big East, Big Ten, SEC, ACC and Pac-10. Does the 5-foot-10, 165-pounder have any favorites?
"I'm getting a lot of letters from Rutgers, Boston College, Stanford, Purdue, Temple, Connecticut, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and others. Nobody has offered yet.
"However, I did go to a junior day to Rutgers earlier this spring. It was good. I was impressed with the whole trip. I toured the campus, saw the facilities and talked to coach Susan. Coach Schiano spoke and sounded inspired. He made me think Rutgers could get a national championship."
Growing up, Castillo was a big fan of Texas, but what is he looking for in a college?
"I'm looking for a good academic school and a college with prestige," he said. "I also want to stay on the East Coast. I don't want to go out West."
This weekend Castillo plans to participate in the Nike Camp at Penn State.
He earned second team all-Catholic honors after registering 50 tackles, four interceptions and 17 pass breakups as a junior.
