It's an obvious truth that the recruiting process has sped up substantially and with the attention Tim Settle is getting, he could be one of the top players in the 2015 class. The defensive tackle from Manassas (Va.) Stonewall Jackson already has double digit offers from major BCS programs including Alabama, Florida and Ohio State. The stand out defensive tackle recently picked up three more BCS offers.
"UCLA offered on Friday, Miami offered on Sunday and Clemson last Thursday," said the 6-foot-2, 307-pound Settle. "I don't know much about these schools yet. I'm still taking everything in."
Settle has the unique opportunity to train with the current number one player in the Rivals100, Da'Shawn Hand.
"Da'Shawn and I want to major in the same thing," he said. "I think it would be good for me if I decide to be a coach one day. You never know. The recruiting process is actually getting easier because I'm learning what to say."
With so many schools already pulling him in different directions, Settle is slowly planning visits to local schools.
"I was planning on going to North Carolina but I think it's going to be hard for me to get there," said Settle. "I might just go see Virginia with my trainer.
Offers are sure to continue to pour in for Settle but he has a good idea of which one might be next.
"Florida State is showing a lot of interest right now but they just haven't made the move yet," he said.
Settle's other offers include South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Virginia, Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, North Carolina and others.
