When it comes to talent in the state of Pennsylvania this season, it’s one of the most bumper crops in recent memory. With blue-chip names like Henne and Morelli leading the way it’s easy to overlook some of the other players that have offers. One such player is Curtis Brinkley of Philadelphia West Catholic.
“I have two offers,” the 5-foot-10, 185-pound all-purpose back said. “I’ve been offered by Minnesota and Syarcause.”
Brinkley, who rushed for 2,813 yards and 30 touchdowns as a junior, said he’s not in any kind of rush to make a college decision and is still open to many teams. Many teams like North Carolina, Michigan State, Virginia and Nebraska, who are also showing him interest through regular mailings and May telephone calls.
“I’m just open right now,” Brinkley said. “I’m not in any kind of rush and I don’t even know what school I like the best yet.”
While he’s open off the field, Brinkley is focused on it. He’s been working hard this summer and has established a personal goal to get around 4,000 total yards this season. It’s a lofty goal, but one he thinks he can achieve.
“I’ve worked hard this summer,” he said.
“I’ve made an effort to get stronger, so I can run over people. I can already run past them, but I needed to get stronger. I am now. And through hard work, I think I can achieve my goals.”
