One of the toughest positions to recruit is at center, where it takes a unique blend of size and athleticism. Offensive lineman Devlin Brennan of Poughkeepsie (N.Y.) Our Lady of Lourdes is hoping that his skill set will be more than enough to keep the college recruiters interested.
"Recruiting is going well," said Brennan, who is 6-foot-4 and 275-pounds. "I've received letters from quite a few schools. Penn State, Syracuse, Rutgers, Notre Dame and Buffalo all requested transcripts and I believe they all requested film."
Brennan attended a summer camp at UPenn last summer and is looking to attend camps at Penn State and Boston College this summer. At these camps he has one goal in mind.
"I want to prove that I have the ability and potential to play Division 1A football," said Brennan, who has a couple of things he hopes to find in a school. "Mostly the academic credibility of the school and the success of the football program."
During his junior season Brennan saw time on both sides of the ball, which also allowed him to showcase his abilities on defense.
"My team finished 6-3 and I played center and made first team all-state defensive end as well," said Brennan. "I still want to work on my footwork, strength and power."
