Fayetteville (N.C.) Jack Britt safety Alex Frye holds five offers now from Duke, Wake Forest, Virginia, East Carolina and Maryland. Does the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder with 4.55-second speed have any favorites?
"He's getting a lot of interest from a lot of schools," said Britt coach Richard Bailey. "The schools that have offered are showing interest along with Northwestern and Notre Dame. I'm not receiving many calls from them, but a lot of mail is coming in and I'm just about ready to send out his first four games to the schools."
Does the three-star prospect have any favorites?
"If he's leaning towards anybody it would be Maryland because he has family in the D.C. area including uncles and aunts," he said. "Virginia is also up there and if Notre Dame continues to show interest and offer, I wouldn't be shocked if they get into it too because Alex is looking for a successful academic school. I know he's taken notice of Notre Dame's recent success from talking with him a little bit.
"Notre Dame first found out about him from New York Jets defensive back's coach Corwin Brown who brought up Alex to Charlie Weis. That definitely helps to get a recommendation from an NFL coach."
Frye has not scheduled any visits yet and according to Bailey it may be a while.
"He's relayed to me that he may wait until after the season before taking all five visits," he said. "He mentioned that he'll probably go from school to school in December and January and make a decision around Signing Day."
In the coming weeks, the No. 46 safety in the country is looking at taking unofficial visits.
"He's probably going to go to the Wisconsin-North Carolina game this weekend because we're open," he said. "He may also go to a Virginia game and Maryland game later this year."
This season Frye has helped Jack Britt to a 4-0 start.
"He's had a pretty good year. He started off slow, but in the last two or three games he has made some big plays including a big interception to seal a win, and several big catches as a receiver including one for a crucial first down and another for a touchdown," he said. "This year he seems a little bigger and a lot more mature. He's a very smart football player and he does things you can't coach. He'll make somebody a very good free safety at the next level."
