This week Rutgers extended an offer to one of the top junior offensive linemen in the state of Pennsylvania.
Andrew Zeller, a 6-foot-5, 280-pound tackle from Red Lion Area has seen recruiting pick up of late now that there is more contact between college coaches and soon-to-be rising seniors, and that increased interest has led to an offer.
Coaches from Maryland, Villanova, Pitt, Temple and Vanderbilt have all made trips to Zeller's school to meet the talented prospect. The biggest news was the most recent, however.
"I received an offer from Rutgers this week," Zeller said. "I talked to Rutgers on Wednesday morning and they liked me a lot. They called and talked to my coach after evaluating my film. They had a meeting and they said they see me as a potential student-athlete. They offered me the next day.
"I haven't been up to visit but I'm going to do that sometime soon."
He will probably be doing that very soon, actually.
Zeller is leaving his home in Pennsylvania tonight and making a trip south. He will be visiting Duke early tomorrow morning and then he will visit Miami.
"Once I get back from those trips I'll probably go visit Rutgers," he said.
The junior prospect had already picked up offers from Duke and Maryland.
