Oak Ridge (N.C.) Oak Ridge Military Academy offensive guard William Foxx holds a handful of offers. The 6-foot-2, 290-pounder claims at least a couple schools from the ACC and Big Ten are seriously interested.
"I have offers from East Carolina, Gardner-Webb, North Carolina A&T and Appalachian State," he said. "I've had interest from Penn State and Georgia Tech so far this season. They both haven't offered yet, but Coach Johnson for Penn State is really considering me. Coach Spencer from Georgia Tech is thinking about offering too.
"I visited Penn State this summer in July and Coach Johnson showed me around. They've seen my film and are just waiting it out; they still seem interested. I'm supposed to be going to Georgia Tech soon, they are just reviewing my tape. They are supposed to let me know something soon."
Interest for Foxx is coming for both sides of the ball.
"My offers for East Carolina and Appalachian State are for defense, Penn State wants me for defense," he said. "Georgia Tech, Gardner-Webb and A&T want me for offense."
Of the offers, the big one for Foxx to this point is East Carolina. He recently visited the Pirates.
"They are just showing me love, they keep sending me mail every day," he said. "Whenever I go I always have a good experience. Coach Mitchell is my recruiting coach and he shows me love all the time. It feels like a family when I'm up there all the time.
"I've been to two or three of their games. I went a week ago for the win over Memphis. It was a great experience. They put a big score against those guys."
With plenty of interest coming, what is Foxx looking for in a school?
"I really just want a family feeling, I want a good school, somebody who will be there to help me," he said. "I want to get my degree in dentistry. Location doesn't matter, I'd like to stay local, but I've been to Georgia plenty of times and loved it there, I loved it at Penn State. I have family in New York. I like to be where my family is at."
This season, Foxx has helped Oak Ridge to a 5-0 record.
"I'm doing well on both sides of the ball," he said. "I'm trying to get better every game. I've seen a major improvement since last year. I'm smarter and I've grown as an all-around player. I feel like I'm ready for the next level."
