After a solid showing at the Penn State Nike Camp, athlete Dom DeCicco out of Jefferson Hills (Pa.) Thomas Jefferson is looking for more offers. Currently the 6-foot-3, 200-pounder has five scholarships, but thinks other schools could be coming.
"I've got offers from Pittsburgh, Indiana, Cincinnati, Temple and Akron," he said. "I think Arizona State, Iowa, West Virginia and Virginia may offer in the near future. The coaches from all of those schools have told me personally through calls that they are very impressed with me as a player and they just have to talk with the other coaches before possibly offering."
What did DeCicco think stood out about his performance in State College that improved his stock?
"I think I really showed that I am an aggressive and quick player on the field," he said. "I felt I was one of the top players out there in my position in the one-on-ones and ran better than most people thought I could."
The Keystone State prospect claims that his hometown favorite Pittsburgh Panthers are still the lone leader.
"I have a real good relationship with the coaches especially coach Junko and Wannstedt," he said. "Both of those guys are just so down to earth and I can talk to them about anything. I also really like the fact that their team looks like it could be on the rise. It would be nice to be apart of a team that is headed back to glory."
With already a few offers in the bag, DeCicco has begun to consider a decision.
"If I fall in love with a school and am ready before the season I will do it then," he said. "I'm still thinking about waiting until later because if I have a good year I can see if anyone else will offer. Right now, it is very hard to say what I'll do, but if I wait it'll be done by the end of the season."
This summer the Pennsylvania athlete plans to attend camps at West Virginia, Ohio State, Penn State and maybe Tennessee.
Last season DeCicco hauled in 11 touchdown receptions and five interceptions on defense. He finished the year earning first team all-conference.
