Offers start to pile up for huge WR

Massive wide receivers are few and far between, so it's no surprise that 6-foot-5, 208-pound wideout Stephen Alli already has pulled three scholarships. Who has pulled the trigger on the jumbo prospect and does he have any favorites?
"I have offers from Connecticut, Boston College and Harvard," he said. "Personally, I like all the schools that have offered me so far. Connecticut was the first school and they showed interest in me right after my season ended. Boston College just recently came in and I'm interested in them as well."
Alli has already visited the Eagles and Huskies.
"I thought Connecticut's facilities were good. They are brand new and I like their coaching staff," he stated. "I really like the staff at Boston College too. They have a good football reputation as well."
A few other teams are taking a look at the Andover (N.H.) Proctor Academy prospect including Tennessee, Stanford, Tulane, Brown, Dartmouth and Florida.
Does he like anyone?
"I'm really interested in Stanford," he said. "I went all the way out there and they have a good combination of academics and football. I like UConn and Boston College as well as Florida and Tennessee because they are big football schools."
Originally from Toronto, Ontario, Alli mentioned what he wants in a college.
"I'm looking for a combination of good athletics and good football. I want a school with the best of both worlds," he said. "I'm looking to study pre-med too.
"I originally came to Proctor to play basketball and still do. I'm keeping my options open in that regard. I'm not sure if I'll play that in college."
The New Hampshire prospect plans to attend camps at Florida, Stanford and Tennessee this summer.
Last season he posted 14 receptions and eight touchdowns on his way to all-league honors.
"Personally, I think I'm explosive off the line and run routes well. I can jump to catch the ball and I block pretty well."
