Jersey DB favors Stanford, Duke

West Deptford, N.J. safety Anthony Scirrotto has a few decision to make -- what school will he attend and what sport will he play?
"I haven't decided which I'll do, whether it will be football or baseball or both," said the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder. "I have offers from Minnesota, Temple, Stanford and Wisconsin for football and an offer from Duke in baseball."
Scirrotto, who plays quarterback and safety in football and shortstop in baseball, is one of the state's best all-around athletes. His first love is football, but he might want to try both or even switch to baseball depending on the situation.

"Academics come first," said Scirrotto, who has a 4.0 GPA. "If I think Duke is the best place for me and they only want me for baseball, that's great. I plan on visiting Stanford later this summer and comparing them to Duke. Those are my two favorites by far."
A few schools, like Virginia and Penn State, could enter this race with an offer but neither has come forward with one yet.
"I've been to both places and liked them both," he said. "They are both recruiting me for football, but haven't offered yet. Right now I like Duke and Stanford the best for academic reasons."
Last season Scirrotto passed for 949 yards and rushed for 507 yards at quarterback. He also scored 22 touchdowns for West Deptford in 2003. On defense, he had 94 tackles, six interceptions, one sack and was named All-South Jersey.
