McSorley starting to take visits

2014 quarterback Trace McSorley out of Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods still holds one scholarship. However, the 6-foot-0, 180-pounder has seen his interest rise significantly in recent months.
"I've been getting letters from schools every day," he said. "The schools right now in contact with me the most are Rutgers, Penn State, Maryland, Temple, Arizona, Washington, Missouri, Cincinnati, Michigan State, North Carolina, Virginia and Indiana. I just talked to the coach from Indiana the other day."
Still, Boston College remains the only offer.
McSorley has had the opportunity to get out a bit for one visit so far, but plans to take more in the coming weeks.
"I took a trip to James Madison with my coach a couple weeks ago," he said. "We had a free weekend and took a ride down there. It was good. The atmosphere was really nice, so was the weight room. I was very impressed."
McSorley confirmed plans to head to Boston College this weekend for an unofficial visit and then to either North Carolina or Wake Forest later this season. A specific date is still unknown.
So, does McSorley like anyone?
"I like North Carolina. I went to their camp and they liked me when I went and I liked the campus, the area, the climate, it's warm and I've always liked the warm," he said. "Boston College I obviously like. I still really like that school and the academics are good. Their passing offense is always one of the tops in the ACC. I like that.
"I also like Virginia Tech. That is a school I've always liked. Penn State is another school I've followed for awhile. They are going through all that stuff, but I still follow them."
On the year, McSorley has helped his team to an 8-0 record.
"We've had a good year, we're undefeated," he said. "I've done pretty well. So far, I have 1,400-yards on the season, 19 touchdowns and one interception. I have about 250-yards rushing too. On defense, I have five interceptions.
"I think the difference this year is how I prepared in the offseason. I traveled with the team to 7-on-7's and we have a good relationship now. My ability is better too. I'm faster, bigger and stronger. That all has helped me out to get out of the pocket and make more athletic plays defensively."
