Just when it looked like four-star offensive center Mark Brazinski might be narrowing things down, recruiting picks back up. A handful of teams have come in and expressed serious interest in the 6-foot-3, 297-pounder.
"California and Stanford have called," he said. "Georgia Tech is also recruiting me now.
"I sent them tape and the interest has come out of nowhere. Nobody has offered, but they say they know I'm back on the market and are interested. Stanford is like an Ivy League school with palm trees, while California's school of business is a top five school. I know Georgia Tech is a good school as well. I also sent tapes to Florida and Miami and got positive feedback.
"Syracuse wrote me recently too to come up for an official, but I want to see what's going on with the coaches there."
With new interest coming in, what happens now for the No. 6 prospect in New Jersey?
"I already have offers from two schools that I'm considering," he said. "I want to see what else pops up. I still want to take more officials."
Are there any leaders for Brazinski?
"Not really, I'm still very open, but if the right opportunity presents itself I'll take it," he stated. "I'm just trying to find a place I fit in at. The academics have to be top notch and football has to be top notch too. I want a line coach I like and a place with an atmosphere I fit in at."
While recruiting is picking up, Brazinski is still busy with his season as Immaculata will play in the title game this Friday.
"It's our chance for a third straight title," he said. "We're going into this game a big underdog. If we play the way we're capable of playing and our line does a good job and moves the defense to make holes, we can win. We have to keep their offense off the field."
Brazinski will participate in the Under Armor game in January. Could he decide there?
"With all these new schools, if I have to take officials in January than I might not decide there."
