Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy quarterback Timothy Brady landed his first offer not too long ago. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder is close to pulling a couple more offers soon.
"I have one offer from Temple right now," he said. "I'm close to getting two more from Syracuse and Boston College.
"Syracuse told me they wanted to sit down with the rest of their coaches. My father talks to them regularly and they love what I can bring to the table. They have said they'll me know when it comes to an offer. I'm planning to go down there even if they offer me just to show what I can do in front of the coaches.

"I've talked to Coach Washington from Boston College. He is really excited about me. He wants me to come up to camp and perform in front of the other coaches. He wanted to offer me back at Elon, but he thought I was too good of a player for Elon. He thought I was a major Division I athlete. Now at Boston College, he's shown interest and wants me to get down there."
Brady discussed the camps he is considering at this stage.
"The camps I'm going to right now are Wake Forest, they told me they will offer once they see what I can do at camp," he said. "Maryland, West Virginia, Temple, Syracuse and I may go back down to Florida. I went to Friday Night Lights last year and did well. They have a new offensive coordinator and want to see what I can do. He thinks I may be a fit."
The quarterback has one offer at this point from Temple and he gave his thoughts.
"I love Temple," he said. "I've taken five visits down there and I love the environment there. I could see myself in that program. As of right now, Temple is my No. 1 school from what I've seen them bring to the table. I've taken visits to Maryland, Tennessee and Vanderbilt, but when I go to Temple, I feel at home and the coaches me me feel at home."
While Temple is very high on Brady's list right now, he was honest about other schools he's very intrigued about.
"Most definitely Temple is up there," he said. "I've gotten a chance to watch Miami play and I like Miami. That's always been my dream school. I like West Virginia and the way they play. I've heard a lot from Coach Roberts and I like Oregon. Those are the schools I enjoy watching play."
The two-star prospect went in-depth on what he wants in a college.
"The No. 1 thing I'm looking for is to make sure the school has my major," he said. "I've made up my mind and I want to go into IT computer science. I like building computers and I'm taking classes for it now. I love it really and I want to make sure whatever school I go to, they have my major. I want a quality education. That is the No. 1 thing that will draw my attention to a school. When it comes to football and athletics on the field, I want the opportunity to win a championship and I'll choose the program that I feel is the best fit to do so."
Brady has largely been under the radar since he played in just three games last season.
"I actually had gotten hurt in the second game of the season," he said. "I played in two more games and threw for a total of 700-yards and seven touchdowns in those three games.
"I fractured my kneecap, but I'm doing much better now. I'm back in full effect."
With little film to go on, what stands out about Brady?
"You know, I've been starting since my freshman year on varsity and I had to work to get my speed up. I ran a 4.8 back then, and I've worked hard to get it down to a 4.46 now. Throwing the ball has never been an issue. I have a strong arm and threw as a freshman against that top-ranked DeMatha team for 317-yards. I still want to improve on breaking down defenses more though. I do a pretty good job of it, but I want to master it."
