"I've been waiting for this upcoming year for a while and I'm excited about it. I have many schools that are very interested and once the recruiting season gets into full gear I should have a better idea about what schools I'm interested in."
For now, besides Rutgers, Wisconsin and Boston College, he has heard from the likes of Penn State, Michigan, Maryland, Syracuse, Kansas St, North Carolina and many others. He is focused on having a great senior year.
"I'm working out hard and getting faster as well. This is very important to me and I want to make the best of my situation."
Look for Albert to have many offers before the new season begins.
