Offers continue to grow for Hackenberg

Offers are beginning to pile up for Fork Union (Va.) Fork Union Military 2013 quarterback Christian Hackenberg. The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder claims two new offers this week from the SEC and ACC.
"I actually just picked up an offer from Miami on Tuesday and South Carolina on Wednesday," he said. "I'm just thankful and blessed every day for the opportunities I have. I've got to make the best decision for me."
Hackenberg reflected on the newest scholarships.
"Both of them I fit in well and I like both coaches a lot," he stated. "I like both head coaches and position coaches, so you know both are great situations for me."
Alabama offered not too long ago too.
"Having the opportunity to play at that type of atmosphere with a coach like Nick Saban and the players down there, that is a great opportunity and hard to pass up," he said. "I'm very excited they have given me the opportunity. I've got to keep learning more about the school, depth chart and that type of stuff."
In terms of visits, Hackenberg is hoping to make trips later this spring to Miami, Alabama and South Carolina, but nothing is currently scheduled.
As he contemplates his offers more, what does he want in a school?
"I want a great school that offers great academics and a great football program," he said. "I just want a team where I feel it's a family out there. I want somewhere I can give everything I have for them."
Hackenberg accounted for 2,200-yards passing and 23 total touchdowns while earning first team all-league, region and state honors.
"I played really well this year," he said. "We had a bunch of injuries upfront, so the ball wasn't rolling our way a lot."
