Randallstown, Md. Is home to the top defensive ends in the country in Melvin Alaeze, but also possesses talented player in the secondary in Jamari McCollough. McCollough, a 6-foot-0, 172-pound athlete earned all-conference honors as a junior and holds a number of written offers going into the season.
“We’re ready to get off the practice field and start knocking someone else around,” explained McCollough. “It feels good to get out there and hit people.”
McCollough has a number of offers that include Maryland, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, UCLA, and Virginia Tech to name a few. Have any leaders emerged at this point?
“No, I’m still pretty wide open. I plan on taking most of my official visits after the season,” admitted McCollough. “I’m going to a number of games this fall though, and that should help me figure out which schools I will visit officially.”
McCollough does have one official visit lined up this month.
“I’m visiting Purdue on an official visit, but I’m not sure which weekend I’m going out there yet,” said McCollough. “I also know I’m going to take official visits to Maryland and Virginia Tech with Melvin (Alaeze) at some point.”
With the contact period for college coaches having started up again, McCollough has had a chance to speak with a number of coaches.
“Coaches from Connecticut, Purdue, Penn State, North Carolina, and Virginia Tech all called me the first night they were allowed to talk to recruits again,” explained McCollough.”
McCollough added that he will be attending the Maryland at Virginia Tech game later this season to check out two of his favorites.
