Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep defensive end Ravi Pradanhang was believed to have quite a few Division I offers. In fact, the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder currently holds just a pair of offers from Maine and Monmouth, but is getting serious interest from BCS conference schools.
"Monmouth and Maine are the only offers I have," he said. "I took a visit last weekend to Monmouth and it went well. I was really impressed by the social life up there. The football players were really close."
Plenty of other schools are looking at the three-star prospect.
"I'm still talking to New Hampshire, Massachussetts, Connecticut and South Florida," he said. "I'm waiting to hear back from UConn and South Florida; they say they'll be in touch at the end of January. I think they are still looking at tape."
Pradanhang claims there are no favorites for his services.
"I'm still taking visits and I'll be choosing later at the end of January," he said. "Really, I'm looking for a place with strong academics because I want something in the future besides just football. As far as football goes, I'd like to be challenged and go where the competition is the best."
The No. 30 strongside defensive end in the country has a tentative visit planned with Maine on January 12th.
This season the Garden State prospect helped St. Peter's Prep to an 11-2 season.
"We played well and finished in Giants Stadium losing to Don Bosco Prep," he said. "The year went well and I'm proud of this team. Everyone gave effort right through that last game. The only drawback on the year for me was that I would have liked to win a state championship.
"I still did well. I finished with 76 tackles and seven sacks. I think this year I used my hands a lot better to get away from tackles."
