College recruiting is rising for massive 6-foot-7, 280-pound offensive tackle Ryan Revia. The Roanoke (Va.) Patrick Henry prospect is getting looks from all over the country though no scholarships have come in yet.
"I've received a number of letters from colleges all over, Tennessee, UCLA, Wisconsin, Stanford, Nebraska and the list goes on and on," he said. "I've talked to different coaches around here, Coach Stinespring at Virginia Tech, Virginia and Richmond. Virginia and Virginia Tech want me to camp this summer. Tennessee invited me to camp, lots of schools are giving me camp invites."
Revia's only visit to date has been to Virginia back in the fall.

In the meantime, Revia broke down what he wants in a college.
"Obviously I want to try to go to one of the upper echelon programs and play early," he said. "Academics are extremely important, I want them to set me up with a great education. I have a 3.85 GPA and 1900 SAT. I want a great education if football doesn't work out I have something to fall back on. I would like an offense I translate well into, I'm in a pro-style offense."
Revia missed a bit of his junior season this past year, but still performed well.
"It was up and down, I could have performed better, but I got better as the year went on."
Revia is working hard in the offseason to improve even more as he is participating in wrestling.
"I believe it does help with my footwork, athleticism and hand combat, it helps out a lot and that's why my weight is down now to 280-pounds."
