Drew stefanelli 200 4 11
Fullback Drew Stefanelli out of Olney (Md.) Good Counsel holds one offer at this time. The 5-foot-10, 225-pounder updated the latest with his recruitment at this time.
"Tulane is the only offer I have right now," he said. "I'm getting more interest from other schools and kind of considering them over Tulane as I don't really know how legit the offer is.
"I haven't really gotten to go to their camp and haven't talked to the coaches much. I'm not getting the attention from them that other schools are giving me."
Stefanelli is hearing from a variety of other programs.
"I'm getting a lot of interest from Towson, but they don't know if they can give me a full or half ride," he said. "Also, I'm hearing from Syracuse, Monmouth, Richmond, Robert Morris and Temple.
"The bigger school right now is Syracuse and they're saying I'm up there on the board. I went to their camp and did a good job. The head coach wants a bigger fullback, the other guys they are looking at are from Texas and Minnesota and they are 240 or 250-pounds."
With interest rising, does Stefanelli like anyone?
"I have favorite schools, the schools I like are Penn State and Tennessee, the more traditional powerhouse schools and most of them use a fullback."
Obviously playing time is part of the equation, but other factors are at play for Stefanelli too.
"Early playing time, a pro-set offense and what I really want to do, those are the things I'm looking for," he said. "Location doesn't really matter, I don't care if it's colder or hotter. I would prefer to stay closer to home.
"It doesn't matter if it's Division I interest either. I really want a school that can use me a lot, so I could care less where I go. Playing time and education are my two main things."
On the field, Stefanelli earned honorable mention all-conference as a junior last year.
"I had a good year, after the first game I started at fullback the rest of the season," he said. "I was more of a blocker.
"This year it's going to be different, I'm going to run a bit more since I'm faster and quicker, but I prefer blocking. I would have to say my blocking is my greatest asset."
