Reports surfaced over the weekend that 6-foot-6, 255-pound tight end Josh Lovell may have offers. Rivals caught up with the Gloucester, Va. prospect to find out the latest with his recruiting and more.
"I'm getting a lot of interest from West Virginia, Georgia, Virginia and Notre Dame. Those are probably the ones that are the most interested," he said. "I have heard that I've been offered, but the schools have talked to Coach Reamon about that and I don't really know."
The local paper, Daily Press reported that Lovell has offers from Georgia and Virginia so far.
Does he have any favorite schools?
"Virginia and Georgia are my two favorite colleges. West Virginia is pretty cool too," he said. "I've always liked Virginia because I live around here. I like the players at West Virginia, Slaton and Pat White. As for Georgia, I have family there and have gotten to some games."
Lovell went on to discuss what he is looking for in a college.
"I just want a good athletic program. I'd like a place with a strong football team and good academics," he said. "I'd like to stay in-state too, but it doesn't bother me either way."
Lovell plans to attend a junior day at Notre Dame this spring along with a Nike Camp in Baltimore.
The Virginia prospect had a solid year, posting 35 receptions for 415-yards and three touchdowns on his way to first team all-district and second team all-region honors.
"This was a new position for me," he said. "I made the transition from tackle. It was an easy adjustment and a position I always wanted to play.
"I think I have good size, hands and aggression. I need to work on my speed, particularly my quickness and explosion. I also want to work on my technique."
