Jacksonville (Fla.) Nease seems to have a new Division I prospect emerge about every month. Another name to add to the long list of prospect for the Panthers is offensive guard Doug Polochak who has a nice list of offers and growin interest from others.
"I picked up a new offer from Southern Miss recently," Polochak said. "West Virginia has been calling a lot as well as North Carolina. THe other schools that have been calling a lot are the ones that have offered like Central Florida, East Carolina, Navy and Toledo."
The 6-foot-4, 238-pound Polochak attended the NIKE camp in Tallahassee where he ran the 40-yard dash in 5.32 seconds, the shuttle in 5.03 seconds and posted a 21-inch vertical jump.
"I flew up with my brother to West Virginia and we went to the West Virginia-Virginia Tech game," Polochak said. "That was really an awesome experience, I got to see the coaches and the atmosphere was crazy. I went to a Central Florida game earlier this year too where I met the coaches and stuff."
When looking at Polochak's list of favorties it certainly appears that the Mountaineers went a long way in impressing him.
"My top three right now are West Virginia, East Carolina and Southern Miss," Polochak said. "I haven't ruled anyone out though and I am keeping an open mind to everyone especially the schools that have offered. West Virginia hasn't offered yet, but they told me that they want to figure out how many lineman they want to sign and stuff."
Polochak is a little light in the britches at 238 pounds so a red-shirt is likely, which will be used to add weight to his frame.
"I can play guard or tackle, but I think a lot of schools like me better as a guard with my weight and feet," Polochak said. "I may wait to take all of my officials and I know a lot of schools don't do official visits until December, but I would really like to commit before that. We will just have to see I guess."
