Since de-committing from Boston College back in the summer, athlete Josh Tapscott has largely put recruiting on hold. However, the 5-foot-8, 183-pounder is putting together a huge senior season that is only expected to draw more interest.
"The season is going pretty well, we're 5-0," he said. "I'm doing pretty good. In five games I have over 700-yards rushing and 10 touchdowns. I'm happy right now because the team is doing well."
Tapscott discussed his strong start to the year.
"I had my expectations this year, and I just want to keep winning and help my team," he said. "I think I have improved. I'm bigger and faster than I was last year. The line is playing really well and I've improved my downhill running."
Surprisingly, college interest has yet to pick up for Tapscott despite the strong start.
"I'm still taking to Ohio and Richmond, William & Mary and some I-AA schools," he said. "I know a lot of schools have asked for highlights and my coach has been sending stuff out. But, I'm not really sure who is coming in. I'm trying to keep my head out of recruiting to be honest."
Tapscott was receiving interest from the likes of East Carolina, Illinois, Maryland, Old Dominion and Wake Forest amongst others earlier in the process, but whether they are on him now remains to be seen.
Still, Tapscott is looking for a few things wherever he ends up.
"Primarily, I just want a good education and an offense that fits me," he said. "I want a good atmosphere where football is the main thing and everyone around there is abouty football. I also want a free education."
Tapscott and Kettle Run face John Handley this week.
