QB Starks nabs Big East offer

Quarterback Bradley Starks out of Orange (Va.) Orange County has picked up a second scholarship offer. Previously the 6-foot-4, 175-pounder held a lone offer from Temple, but a school from the Big East has sent an offer over.
"I got offered a couple weeks ago from West Virginia," he said. "That's a big offer and it's a great school. The coaches are a lot of fun including my recruiter Bill Stewart. I'm actually planning to go visit them on March 25th and I'm looking forward to checking out the faculty, academics and athletics."
Starks touched on his first offer from Temple as well.
"I am really close with coach D'Onofrio and I got along with him when he was at Virginia," he said. "That has carried over and I still have a great relationship with him even though I haven't communicated with him. Hopefully during the summer I'll get a chance to visit him and check out their school."
At the moment the quarterback prospect doesn't have any favorites. He does however have plenty of interest from schools including Louisville, North Carolina State, Florida, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Ohio State, Michigan, Tennessee, Purdue, Duke and Maryland.
"I am just looking for a program that fits me," he said. "I want to go somewhere I feel most comfortable at and somewhere I can help the team and program out. I don't care how far I have to go and actually I kind of think it could be fun going far away from home."
Starks accounted for over 3,000 yards of offense and 40 touchdowns as a junior. He went on to be named first team all-district, first team all-region, first team all-state and offensive player of the year in the district.
Meanwhile, Starks just finished up basketball season. The quarterback prospect is starting to receive interest from the hardwood as well.
"I am getting recruited by a few schools for basketball including VCU, Virginia and North Carolina State," he said. "I'm definitely keeping my options open and considering basketball at the next level. I would like to play both sports if I could as I think that would be a lot of fun."
