Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J. was ranked by USA today as the No. 2 team in the country last season. One reason for that ranking was the big, powerful offensive line that opened huge holes for Boston College-bound five-star stud Brian Toal. Offensive tackle Brian Roche will once again help lead the way for Don Bosco and the 6-foot-5, 275-pound tackle is already getting plenty of D-I interest.
"I'm getting a lot of mail and I was at the Rutgers junior day a couple weekends ago. So far the schools that I like most are Rutgers, Boston College, Virginia, Michigan, Notre Dame and Southern Cal."
Brian had 36 pancakes last season and graded out an amazing 95-percent for the season and did not allow a sack. For his outstanding year he was selected to the AP all-state, all-parochial, all-league and all-North Jersey teams. Does Rutgers have the early edge?
"I really enjoyed the junior day at Rutgers. The new facilities are amazing and I like the coaches a lot. It's way too early to name them as my leader though. I have to see a lot more places."
He will most likely be attending USC, Notre Dame and Michigan camps this summer and may go to a few closer camps as well.
