North Allegheny has more prospects to watch

Offensive tackle Ryan Schleiper isn't the only prospect to watch at Wexford (Pa.) North Allegheny. The school features three more prospects in 2009 and one of them holds a Division I offer.
"Brian Austin isn't real big at 5-foot-9, 165-pounds, but he's extremely strong and very fast, a legit 4.4 guy," head coach Art Walker said. "He was third in the state in the 100 with a 10.6.
"He is an explosive, athletic small guy, but a great return man. He's a three-year starter and a 3.0 student. I think he's a true slot receiver."
Already Army has offered the speedy wideout.
"He does have an offer from Army and is getting interest from Division I-AA schools because of his speed as well as the MAC, UConn and Colorado."
Austin posted 250-yards receiving and two touchdowns as a junior.
Austin is joined by 6-foot-1, 200-pound quarterback Mike Locke.
"Mike has worked really hard every year and has put on about 20-pounds this season," he said. "He's a left-handed quarterback that is smart, competitive and has a lot of experience on his side. His work ethic is big. He had about 1,100-yards passing last year sharing time with a kid who walked on at Georgia Tech."
Already Locke is receiving interest from the MAC and Division I-AA schools.
Rounding out the group is offensive guard Mike Vuono.
"He is the tackle opposite Ryan," he said. "He si a big athletic kid for his size. You know he moves well. He's kind of developed later than Ryan, but is very good for us and a very good student with a 3.8 GPA.
"He's getting a lot of interest from Division I-AA schools. He is a very consistent player and great blocker that gets the job done all the time."
