Demory Monroe finds himself in a position a lot of recruits would love to be in.
The 5-foot-11, 173-pound athlete from Upper Marlboro (Md.) Frederick Douglass has an offer from West Virginia, meaning he has the opportunity to play Big XII football and compete for a national championship. He's also got offers from Ohio and Hawaii.
But the rising senior isn't ready to pull the trigger just yet. And why is that?

Turns out, schools like Wake Forest and others are telling Monroe they could have an offer available, depending on what happens with some guys that already have offers, and depending on how Monroe's film turns out from his first few games.
Monroe visited West Virginia a few weeks ago and the Mountaineers made a strong case. Just not strong enough to compel him to commit.
"West Virginia was pretty cool," Monroe said. "The facilities up there are very beautiful with everything sitting on the mountains. It gets cold up there. Their coaching staff is very down to earth. The head coach is real cool. The defensive backs coach, coach (Daron) Roberts, is a very cool person. He's always straight up with you."
Whether Monroe has some qualms about cold weather or something else he appears to want to wait things out for a while.
"I'm still considering Hawaii and Ohio," he noted, before adding, "and I want to take an official visit to Hawaii."
He's not the first recruit to say that. While West Virginia hasn't put too much pressure on Monroe to commit yet it's not clear how much longer the 'Eers will be willing to wait.
